Best way of viewing/uploading an image?

  geek84 17:22 03 Aug 2013

Hi Folks

Can someone please advice to the best way of uploading an image and sending it to a contact, other than sending it as an attachment?

At present, the way I do it is take a picture of the image on phone, store it in the My Pictures folder on my PC, and then send it as an attachment. However, I want the other person to view the image as it is rather than having to open an attachment.

Thanks in advance

Thanks wiz-king

Can you also tell me how to upload an image as part of a forum posting (for example).

Hi wiz-king

Sorry to bother you again, but I'm not very tech savvy, so could you please explain what you mean by Then copy the url given and paste it into the mail.

Another easier way to do it is to use the snipping tool (or similar) to take a screen shot of part of a forum thread and save to desktop (or where you can find it). Then insert the image to your email.

But that is similar to opening an attatchment. You email a link to the image. Using my method the image is embedded in the email. When the email is opened by the recipient then the image is seen within the email.

Oh I see. Many thanks Wiz-kid. I shall try that & if it don't work, I will be on this thread again asking for your generous advice

I shall gracefully bow out of this thread. Sorry my suggestions weren't applicable to embed an image to an email.

Hi Folks

Thanks for all your help, so far.

Wiz-king - I have now created an account with photo bucket and downloaded my images.

How do I obtain a url, so that I can post it in a forum posting (for example). Can I actually post the imsge in the forum posting?

Any further advice from you kind folk out there?

Thanks for your reply. However, I did manage to upload my photos on photo bucket, but I don't get the slide show screen that you have kindly sent the link to.
