I have a large number of photos "embedded" for lack of a better word, in the body of email messages. They're not attached as jpgs. Right clicking only provides an option for "copy" but I can't seem to get them into another file that I could make a jpg.

My sis-in-law had her computer stolen....with sadly no backups of her photos of her children over the years. I'm building a digital photo-frame for her, but these pictures are driving me insane.
:crazy:

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

After many hours of research, it appears that the problem is coming from the fact that she has a Yahoo account, and they are actually .eml filetypes, and I would need a converter program to make them .jpg files. sigh.

Guess my inquiry can be closed now.

You can copy each of the photos, place them into microsoft word.
From there, right click each photo and click save photo as...

Thanks - but I tried this a million times. I can copy the picture to Word. I can save the file as a jpg, but will make the name xxxxxx.jpg.docx. If I click on just the picture, there is no "save as" option. Just doesn't work that way.

Do you still use Windows Vista? If you do and it is Home Premium or higher it should have a snipping tool.

If all else fails you can use it to snip the photos. Create a folder to save them to so they will all be in place.
With a lot of photos it may be time consuming. You will have to click New and choose Rectangular Snip so you can drag the cursor over the photo.

I don't use Outlook so this is the only thing I can think of.

By default snips are saved as .png files. You can change each one to jpeg by clicking on File/Save As and clicking the drop down arrow in the Save as type box.
