How to send a
photo by email and saving your photo in the correct format
You can send a photo by email or by post to Roger but if you don't know how to send a photo by email please read on. Import your
photograph into a computer via a scanner, camera or whatever other way then save the photo to a folder on your hard drive, make sure you know where you saved it! In your photo editing software and here we are using paintshopro, you could also be using photoshop or some other photo software (The principles are the same) click on file then open and scroll for the name of your photo and click
on open. When your photo comes up click on file again and then on save as. See a video excerpt in how to order a portrait and help in sending a photo by email Click tip

When the save as dialogue box comes up, at the top it will say save in and opposite this in a white box it might say My documents or another folder name. You can save your photograph into the My documents folder if you like or you can create a folder yourself by resting your mouse pointer over the little yellow icon that says create new folder. A new box comes up saying new folder and you can type any name into this that best describes what it is you are saving, like photograp.
Staying in the same dialogue box, look for save as type and click the little arrow to the right of this. Scroll down till you find either CompuServe graphics interchange gif, or jpeg compliant jif jpeg, (preferred) or tiff and click on either of these formats. Type a name for your photograph in the file name box and then click on save. You have now saved your photograph in a format that the internet understands so when you send an email to someone they will see your photograph in the big white box below in your email.
Inserting your photo into your email programme.
Open your email programme it could be outlook express, Pegasus, or outlook, (Here I am using outlook express). Click on file then new message, in the to box type the email address you are sending the email to. In the subject box type in whatever your email is about (like how to send a photo by email), click in the big white box below and type your message. Click on insert at the top of this new email message and then on picture
or if you have windows 7 you can click add photos (opposite ab format) the picture dialogue box comes up
or click on attach in the menu, click on browse to find the folder you saved your photograph in. You might have to keep clicking on folder names in the big white box till you find the right folder name.
Once you have found the correct folder click on the name of the file you gave the photograph in the big white box below the look in box, the picture dialogue box will come up. Type in the alternate text box the name of your photograph just in case the person you are sending the email to hasn't got send pictures with messages ticked in there email programme options. You can align your picture below your text or above it and other options by clicking the alignment button, click ok. When you click on insert, then picture, rather than on insert and then file attachment, the picture is displayed in the box at the bottom of the recipients email without having to double click the file name to open it as with a file attachment. You now know how to save and send a photo in your email correctly.
