How can I place small pictures or a link or icon in the body of E-mail
messages--
so the the pic will appear if the link/icon is clicked on the receiving end?
I have XP, IE6,oe6, SP2. most of my pics are in My Pictures. camera
used: SONY cyber-shot 5.1.

I am taking a on-line Chocolate course and need to post Pictures of my
creations to a web site
along with narration.
I have seen links when clicked a small window opens--is this
possible--anyhoo, the easiest way
or all.


Thanks thanks in advance

First...post your image on a website.
Next...try the following steps.

Right click the image that is posted
on the website and from the menu....
choose...Properties.

On the General tab at: Address....
you can copy the link (URL) to that
specific image.

If you paste that link in your e-mail
message...your recipient can click
the link to access the image.

Here's an example:
http://photos13.flickr.com/15497631_b560c2e31f.jpg

Also...if the link is too long, you can
go to...TinyURL
http://tinyurl.com/

Enter the long link and the site will
create a tiny link for you.

Example:
http://tinyurl.com/9e4r2

My example is posted at:
Flickr

Actually, there are many online sites
where you can upload your images
and order prints. Have a look at the
following link:

the "Show Me The Sites" button)
