    E-Mailing attachment via iphoto straight to Mail
    Hi Guys

    I'm new to the world of Mac and loving it since I moved from PC.

    I'm learning as I go on but one thing I can't seem to crack is the issue with e-mailing events/photos from iphoto via the e-mail click button straight into the Mail programme.

    The issue i'm experiencing is that when i click on an event i.e that contains 9 pictures and I click the "e-mail" symbol at the bottom of the screen to open up mail with the new composed message, the images are contained within the e-mail itself as opposed to an attachment file. I tried this as a test message by clicking send to e-mail to my works address but upon checking this morning the images are contained visible within the e-mail and are not there as an attachment.

    Looking to put this right, so all help is appreciated.

    Many thanks

    Jonathan

    This is an issue with Mail, not with iPhoto. The Mail app insists on displaying photos as pictures instead of attachments. To save them, you would need to highlight the photos in the received email, right click, and select save. To prevent this issue while composing the email, select the photo from within the email, right click and select 'view as icon'.

    With small photos, or with just a single attachment, it's not that big of a deal. But if an email contains many photos, it's a pain.

    Fortunately, there is hope. Try Lokiware: Mail Attachments Iconizer It works well and will correct this behavior. It will add a tab to the Mail Preferences, which allows you to address this bahavior properly.

    Or, you can simply open up Mail, open up the message window, click Attach and find the files you want right under the Photos section of your Mac.

    Press any key to continue, or any other key to cancel.

    I have a mac and i'm emailing jpg files (photos) using iphoto to a pc user. The pc user says when they receive email they can see that the email has attachment but as soon as they open up the email the photos are embedded in the email and they can't find the paperclip to open and save the photo.

    Does anyone know what is wrong here?

    thanks
