Just a couple of questions, so the answer won't be too confusing:
1. Are you viewing your E-mails on the internet, or are you downloading them into an application like Outlook Express to open/read them?
2. Is the picture embedded in the body of the E-mail (like a web-page) or is it a genuine attachment (with the paper clip)?
3. Would you feel safer if you first put these pictures onto your hard drive, and then made a copy of these on a CD?

Cheers,
John

Thank you for responding. To answer your questions
1) I am viewing them on the internet. After I look at em( they are pictures people have sent me) I move em to a folder.

2) they are all attachments(paperclips).

3) I use my pc @ work so I dont know if I want to put em in the hard drive unless I can delete them from the hard drive without screwing up my computer. I will probally go with what ever is easier and faster.

Again, Thanks for trying to help me.

I would download the pictures to the hard drive as a precaution, then use whatever software is on the computer to save them to a disk.

Here is a step-by-step for downloading an attachment:

1.Underneath the text of the Email should be a separate area for Attachments. There should be a tab there for photos, and a thumbnail of each of these.
2. Look for the option "Save to Computer" (it should be underlined, most likely to the right of the thumbnail). Double click on this.
3. You should then get a virus scan results page, since Yahoo is kind enough to scan the file before you download it. Hopefully the scan result is "no virus detected."
4. Underneath the scanning message should be a button "download attachment" that you can click on.
5. Depending on your browser, you will get some kind of dialogue box giving you a choice of opening or saving the file. Choose "save to disk" or whatever choice your browser gives you that resembles this option.
6. The dialogue box will now give you a choice for the location to save it to. I suggest you save it to the MyPictures folder (in C: drive)

Let me know if you have any questions about these steps.
Regards,
John

Might also want to take into consideration, if she's going to put these pictures on a cd , that she has the right hardware?

Yippee!!!!!!!
Glad it worked for you. If these are family photos, you might want to make a second CD, just in case.
