Chris,

I need to attach a photo to a completed application so it can be emailed.  Exporting to a folder doesn't accomplish what I need to do.  It seems like I could print the photo then scan it as a document but there must be a better way.  Thanks.

Frank,

I might need some more detail here like what email program do you use …

I think that exporting to a folder is what you need to do … then, using your email program, attach that exported picture.

So … from your email program

  1. Address your email to the recipient
  2. click on attach
  3. attach your application
  4. attach your exported picture
  5. write the message
  6. send

Whaddaya think – does that work for you?

I use gmail and unless I did it wrong I don't think that is going to accomplish my task.  I need to attach the photo as part of an application but what I ended up with was 2 seperate attachments with my email.  (Actually I have 2 photos that need to be included so there would be 3 when I'm done)  I probably should not have used the word “attach” as it needs to be “part of” the document.  Thanks.

Ahh – OK.  It sounds to me like you need to insert the picture on a page of the application.  Are you using MS Word to fill out the application?

If so, you can use the Insert Picture command – still use the picture that you exported.

Or, with Word – or any other text editing program – you can use Copy and Paste.  With the picture open in Picasa – Edit Copy.  With your cursor in position on the application – Edit Paste.

See the Picasa Video #32: Ways to Save ( and watch all the way thru to the end, that's where Copy/Paste is)

Terrific.  I am using Word so the Insert Picture was what I needed.  That was slick and easy ………….. IF  you know what you are doing, and I don't so that's why I'm here.  Thanks so much.
