I had a photo I wanted to make into an email card.  So I took a large picture from my camera and reduced it’s size and added a printed message in PS Elements 13.  The only way you can send the new photo card in Elements is as an attachment.  I want the recipient to receive the email and see the photo card without having to open a file.  I used to be able to do that in PSE but it no longer has that option.  

I was thinking of trying it in Picassa but I no longer have that on my computer.  If I installed it it would want to pull in all my images (over 50,000).  

Is there another way I can send a photo that will show up in the email , not as an attachment?  

Yes, this is an email Christmas card . . .  I’m running late!!

Using Gmail – you can click the toolbar icon for Insert Photo, and it brings the whole photo into the body of your email. 

Do you use gmail?

As for Indio – we are not presenting there, but we expect to be nearby and Jim is thinking about visiting.
