    email via iPhoto
    Hi all
    I just tried emailling via iPhoto for the first time from my new(ish) mac (10.6.7) and my friend said the text and photos came out on top of one another so she couldn't read it, or see the photos properly.
    Anyone else experienced this problem? It was sent to a PC.
    Thanks for any suggestions / help.

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    I see the problem. Your friend has a PC.

    Just kidding. The actual problem is that they are using a VERY OLD email client that can't handle HTML-formatted emails. No worries, here's an alternate way to send the picture.

    In iPhoto, grab (select) the photo you want to send it and drag it out of iPhoto straight onto the Mail icon in the Dock. Mail will open with a new message and the photo. Add your text and address it to your friend and press send.

    Thanks Chas - I have changed the email settings in iPhoto to send via my Mail.app account as someone told me about the HTML thing. I like your trick though - that's neat, I didn't know you could do that. Thanks for your help

    Works with any file you have in Finder too. Text, spreadsheet, photo, anything! Just drag it onto the icon and Mail will attach it to a blank e-mail.
    64GB iPhone 6, 64GB iPad Air 2.

    Reminder: Please include your Mac's specs. This will make it much easier for the other members to assist you.
