Chapter 8. Sharing Photos > To send photos via email

To send photos via email

1.
Select the photos you want to send.

2.
Click the Email button.

iPhoto displays a dialog with options for your photos (Figure 8.11).

Figure 8.11. Make sure to set a reasonable size for your photos before sending them via email or they'll take too long to transfer for you and your recipient.


3.
Choose the maximum size you want the photos to appear from the Size pop-up menu, and, if you want to include titles and comments, select their checkboxes.

4.
Click the Compose button.

iPhoto exports the pictures (converting them to JPEG files in the process), launches your email program, creates a new message, and attaches the photos, which appear inline only in Apple's Mail (Figure 8.12).

Figure 8.12. Here's what the message looks like in Mail You don't get much control over the layout, but don't worry, because there's no way of telling what it will look like on the receiving end anyway.


✓ Tips

  • iPhoto lets you select only Apple's Mail, Eudora, Microsoft Entourage, or America Online. To use iPhoto with Mailsmith, PowerMail, QuickMail Pro, Outlook Express, or Claris Emailer, try Simon Jacquier's free iPhoto Mailer Patcher (http://homepage.mac.com/jacksim/software/imp.html).

  • If you send too many photos, or don't shrink their sizes enough, your message may be too large to be delivered.
