My Pictures?

I hope I'm at the right place.
I have always sent my pic.s by sending them from the folder {My Pictures} &
the last week I cannot send them in the normal fashion so to speak. I have
to manually re-size & browse from my e-mail program & add the attachment to
the e-mail message.
Can someone help me with this? I assume it's an XP or Windows issue? rather
than my e-mail program.

Thanks, JD

Disable or Enable Resize Graphic - Send To (Line 289, Left)

And, if need be and assuming OE is your default Mail Client:

Reset OE for SendTo , MailTo , Send Mail (Line 64, Left)

Well that didn't work PA Bear but thanks. Maybe I didn't explain well enough.
My problem is-I can't get the picture from "My Pictures" to my SBCYahoo
e-mail message. It was fine until about a weeks ago.
I CAN resize it with in My Pictures, but then when my e-mail message opens,
it has the browse feature there. Instead of the message, open, WITH my
picture attached. I hope this makes sense.
Outlook is not my default e-mail, I rarely use outlook.

Thanks, jd

Well that didn't work. The re-size does work in {My Pictures} BUT when it
gets to my SBCYahoo e-mail it wants me to browse for an attachment, instead
of attaching the photo that I had just "tried to send". Does that makes
sense? I hope so :) Outlook isn't my default e-mail. I only use outlook for
this purpose.
Thanks, jd

I think I figured it out: To insert (embed) a pic into a Yahoo message, it's
has to be an HTML message by default. Go to your Yahoo mail page > Mail
Options > General Preferences > Composing Emails > make certain 'Compose
messages as color and graphics' is chosen here.

If no joy, I'm amazed that it *did* work before, JD!

What changes did you make to your machine between the time it worked and it
started not working (e.g., installs/uninstalls, updates, change of default
browser or picture viewer)?

Have you tried redoing the 'Make Yahoo Your Default' thingy
(http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/mail/ext/ext-09.html)? Note that even that
page says, "Once this application is installed, when you send files from
Word, Excel, or PowerPoint, you'll be taken to the attachments interface in
Yahoo! Mail. At the top of the attachments page, you'll be told where your
file is temporarily stored. You can add the file to your message by clicking
on "Browse" to find it in the location indicated and then attaching as
usual." I'd suspect that you could throw My Pictures into that list of
applications.
