Hi Gang

Have just received picture of new born and it has arrived as .EML file and although I can open the attachment ok, I cannot open it in Irfanview so I can resize it.

Any ideas how to convert it to a manageable file please?

EML is an e-mail - its a copy of an e-mail within an e-mail. Open the EML file in Outlook Express and then you should see the picture.

Right click pic then save as, or copy then paste in Irfan and bingo.Save the photo in whatever format suits you.

.... then thats not a picture file. Its an e-mail embedded in an e-mail.

The picture will be inside the EML file.

Thanks for quick reply, I know what you mean but it did not help me open it in Irfan view. Such a quick response, thanks a lot.


bang on with your tip, I always save my pics to JPEG anyway so why it was sent as EML, I dont know as it makes restrictions and is very large.

Thank you both.
