How Do You Include Pics In An E-mail?

Thu Jan 20, 2005 7:38 am

I know you can attach photos to an e-mail and they usually appear at the bottom of the message, but how do you include picture files within the message in specified places??

If there is a way of linking to a photo I have on photobucket.com, I'd like to know. I've tried all three formats included on photobucket.com - tagging etc... - but it doesn't seem to work.

Any info would be most appreciated. Thanks!

Hi there,

Simple really:



Open a New Message (Make sure your cursor is in the message area) >> Insert >>> Picture >>>> From File and Bob's your uncle.

It should look like so:

....or simply open the picture on your PC with Explorer and copy-and-paste it into your email.

I ain't got the 'Insert' option when using hotmail - I can only seem to be able to attach a file to an e-mail. I assume that wasn't hotmail you were demonstrating with, Jkw777??

Can it be done in hotmail - I had a 5 minute play around with it, but still could only attach pictures..... Any more ideas?!

The email has to be in html format if you want to put the picture in specifc places. Outlook does it automatically (because Outlook is stupid and sux. Sorry couldn't help it Big grin). Try switching the message format in Hotmail to HTML instead of plain text. Of course recipients who have mail clients that don't support html content (rare, but could happen) will not see the picture where you want it but at the bottom, and some jibberish html code.
