We are trying to send scanned photos to our grandparents and they say they can't open attachments. How do you insert a photo into the body of an email?
Thanks

RE: pics in e-mail;

First off, what e-mail are you using and what are your grand parents using?

Next, when you scan your pics, make sure you reduce the size of them (file size). If you try to send to large of a file, the recipient won't get them, normally.

This is one of the biggest mistakes people make about sending pictures. You have to understand that when you scan a pic the default size is normally 640 X 480 pixels and in bitmap format. Which means you have a file that is about 30 megabytes in "file size" and "SAVE AS" .jpeg

In your photo editor, find the function for resizing your pic. usually in the tool bar menu somewhere. and reduce the size to somewhere around 300 X 175 pixels. This makes your pic "e-mail friendly" and everyone is happy.

Now, on to sending with e-mail...
Open your e-mail client, lets say you're using "hotmail" click on compose, address and type your message and find the button with "Attachments" click it. in the next window click "Browse" this will show you the contents of your computer. Find the pic you want to send, click on it and then click "Attach".
Click done and you're all set...

Scan your photos to your documents or picture file. Find the picture in there and open it. When you can see the picture, right click it and copy it. Then open word pad, (notepad) won't work) Paste the picture to word pad. Open your email. Go back it word pad and right click, and copy the photo. Go back to your email and paste it into the body of the email.
Make your comment, address and send.. The grand parent should see the photo unless they are on AOl. AOL require special, only AOL setting which is difficult..Hope this help. Citystar
