    Problem attaching photos to Email
    Hello, I have a Macbook Air with Mac OS X Version 10.7.4. I attempted to attach a JPG photo (around 700K) to a Yahoo email. I clicked on "Choose file" and selected a photo to attach. Then I clicked on "attach". I keep getting the message "There was a problem!" "Invalid File specified. Please try again". I was previously able to attach photos with no problem. Now I cannot. I tried other JPG photos with the same results. I fired up my old windows PC and was able to send the same photo using Yahoo, so the problem seems to be with my Mac. Any ideas? Thanks much....

    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 5K, 512GB Flash Storage, 3.3Ghz, 16GB memory, OS X.11.5.
    For what is worth, assuming the photo is in iPhoto or such, make a copy on the desktop and hit the attach button and it should appear as an option to attach. Sorry not familiar with Yahoo is it possible they have a maximum size for the attachment?>
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Thanks, I just tried your suggestion and it works! Still, I would like to be able to send multiple photos without having to drop them each on the desktop. I have the photos in my pictures folder which was already on the Macbook when I purchased it a few months ago. Yahoo maximum attachment size is 25MB so I am well under that. Thanks....
