I always check after I have attached a file that it will open before sending the email off. All my family and friends to whom I sent these pics could not open the attachment. Will try what you suggested, have been making dinner and doing housework. Never ends!
As I explained in my question that once I have attached the file to the email I click on it and then click on "open " but it will not open then I get the message with the file types. I have also tried clicking on my computer, folder options but I do not have a clue as to which file type I should select! There are many of the same icons which appear on the list with different file ext.
