Send Pictures

Email Photos

If you have a photo on your computer, from a digital camera or something that has been scanned to produce a JPG, GIF, or PNG file.

Here are two choices for doing that:

  1. Send the photo as an attachment to an email. It'll show up as an icon at the top of the email for the receiver to click and open in their picture viewer. This is the most common option.
  2. Embed the photo into a HTML formatted message so it appears in the text of the message just like a photo in a newspaper article. This looks nicer for people who want to read the message and not necessarily work with the photo file. But there are compatibility issues to keep in mind.
Whichever way you choose, you need to keep an eye on the overall size of the message. With higher resolution cameras available it's easy to go over the recipient's limit for incoming messages.
There is a little more to it. Here is a link to a great newsletter that comes in handy again and again:

View Pictures

All at once

This article walks you through the process of using VBA to develop a form that will allow you to open all e-mail picture attachments at one time.

Office Developer Center:

Viewing Multiple Picture Attachments in Outlook 2003
By Eric Legault (Outlook MVP)

It helps to have some experience with VBA coding, but the instructions are clear and no other applications are needed other than the Visual Basic editor that is built into Outlook.

Eric Legault is also a blog contributor at Office
The source code for the MSDN article can be downloaded there. It includes the complete form as well as the code modules.

... "image viewers that use a Multiple Document Interface (MDI) are best suited as a custom viewer. It's better to have one application handle several open image windows than individual windows cluttering your Taskbar! A perfect application for this scenario is the Microsoft Office Photo Editor, but it is no longer bundled with Office 2003."

Microsoft has replaced Photo Editor with a new photo editing and cataloging program in Office 2003 and 2007: Microsoft Office Picture Manager.

Here is how to reinstall Photo Editor from your Office XP CD:

Send Large Files

Surpass Attachments

Some email services such as Hotmail and Yahoo mail only allow email attachments up to 10 MB in size.

If you need to send larger files take a look at services such as YouSendIt.
"The Services provide a user the ability to send a file to one or more recipients identified by a valid email address. The Services operate by storing the specified User File on a YouSendIt server and then sending to the recipient(s) an email that contains a link to the User File.
The recipient(s) can then access and download the User File by clicking on the link."
