Sending Images Attached To An Email Message


The inspiration for this article came from my brother-in-law. He wanted to send me the latest photos of my nephew and he wanted to attach them to an email message but he didn't know how. So we started instant messaging each other and I walked him through the process. That's when I realized that there are probably others who may not know how to send images attached to an email message and I decided to write this short tutorial. The instructions are for AOL 8.0 but the process is basically the same for other Internet service providers. So, log on to the web and here we go.

Step 1. Click on the Write icon on the AOL Toolbar (Figure 1) to open a new Write Mail window.

Step 2. Type in the recipient's email address in the Send To box. We will attach the file to your email before you type in your message. So don't forget to add a message before you send your email. Click on the Attachments button at the bottom of the Write Mail window. (Figure 2) This will open the Attachments window. (Figure 3)

Step 3. Click on the Attach button on the bottom of the Attachments window (Figure 3) to open the Attach dialog box (Figure 4).

Click on the file that you wish to attach to your email and you will see the name of the file appear in the File Name box. (Figure 4) Now click the Open button to close this window and go back to the Attachments window (Figure 5).

Step 4. You are now back to the Attachments window (Figure 5). You should see the name of your image file listed in the box. If you want to email more than one image file, just repeat step 3 for each file. When you have selected all of the image files you wish to email, click OK to close the Attachments window and return to the Write Mail window (Figure 6).

Step 5. You are now back to your Write Mail window (Figure 6). The name of your file should be listed next to the Attachments button at the bottom of this window. Now all you have to do is type in your subject and message and click Send Now.

That's all there is to it. You can attach most types of files to an email. If you are sending more than one file, AOL will automatically compress the files into a zip file for you. This will reduce the time it takes to send the files over the Internet.
