Insert Images in Email

Many email programs permit placing images directly into the body of the email. Make sure that your Rich Text or Html is enabled.

.

2. Open a new email. Position your cursor in the body of your email first, then right click again, and choose Paste.

If you inserted your cursor in the body of your email, your image should appear immediately.

Tips

Although most email programs like AOL, Yahoo, Outlook, Gmail and others have insert image or attach image tools -- they don't all send and receive emails the same way.

  • Some email programs will only let you attach an image.

  • Some email programs will allow you to insert your image into the body of your email (sometimes called embedding).

  • Some email programs will allow you to both insert and attach.

And... you may create the perfect greeting for a bunch of your friends with an image embedded in the body of your email. You think it looks fabulous and you send it off.

Some of your friends open your email greeting and can read it immediately and see the image. Others must click on the attachment to see the image.

Get creative. Have fun. We hope this helps!
