I want to make my own New Year´s postcard and send it from my Yahoo mailbox. I paste an image I have in My PC and type a text. I see both. Then I send the e-mail to the other two e-mail addresses I own, to test the results. I open the e-mail and I see the text and a small square, occupying the image space.
I have the Show Images Button activated in my browser.
I have also tried to send the e-mail from the other e-mail boxes to Yahoo. The same result:
a small square.
I guess it cannot be that diffiicult. I was told that it has to do with the images weight.
Thanks in advance and regards, Catalina.

Photo editing software Dec 17, 2007

Hello Catalina,

Have you tried using photo editing software (such as Photoshop Elements or a similar program) to attach a photo to your e-mail message? That would eliminate the problem of the photo being too large, as these programs have an "attach to e-mail" feature that will size the picture for you. Doing it this way, you'd still be able to add text to your message.

I use either Photoshop or iPhoto to attach photos to e-mail messages, and it works regardless of the provider I use.

Best of luck, and Merry Christmas!

Powertoys for Windows XP Dec 17, 2007

If you don't have it already, get Powertoys for Windows XP. They're free and you can download them from Microsoft online. I use the image resizer which gives you the option of resizing an image by right-clicking on the file icon. This way, you don't have to open it using an image editor.

Hope this helps,

John
