At one time I could e-mail one or more photos from Picasa by selecting an image and clicking on  “e-mail” at the bottom of the page. An e-mail form would come up with the words “You have been sent one picture (or the appropriate number) and a thumbnail of the image on it. I would fill out the form, send it off and the recipient would get the picture. A year or so things changed and the e-mail form would come up with the same words but no thumbnail. Upon sending it the recipient did not receive a picture. I assumed that this was part of the changes Google had made and there was nothing I could do about it other than a lengthier work around. About a month or so I suddenly found the old system worked again indicating that the function was not lost. A week or so later however the thumbnail disappeared again. I now wonder what I did inadvertently that brought it back and then “undid” that caused it to go away again?

Peter – as far as I know the ability to email from Picasa was shut down last year, never to return again. So, I can’t explain how you got it to work at all. See this article: 

It is really very easy to email from Google Photos – just open the photo, click the share button and enter the email address. See this article:
