Hello, I have a quick question about how some people put images inside their emails. That is, when you open it, the images come up automatically. For example, an image with some text below it telling a story or something. The images are not attachments.

How do people do this? Is it some code where the image is actually linked on Photobucket or Shutterfly? does it depend on what email you use. or is it some setting in your email? Or lastly, does it depend on which email account you use to open these emails.

Thanks so much. I've been meaning to ask this for a while now.

EDIT: just thought I'd let you know I use yahoo mail - free account. But I'd like to know about how other accounts differ. Thanks.

When the images are embedded in an email, the sender has used the Insert option instead of the Attach option.
This is available in Outlook Express and ThunderBird however, Yahoo mail doesn't offer this type of feature. You must send the image as an Attachment.

There are programs like Googles Picasa that allow you to write captions with the picture and automatically resizes and attaches pictures to email.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
