E-mailing Photographs

Besides printing images, PhotoRelay also works hand in hand with your e-mail software to send pictures from your albums across the Internet. By default, Windows XP uses Outlook Express for sending and receiving e-mail, so that's what I'll use in this section.

✓ To send a single picture from within PhotoRelay using Outlook Express, follow these steps:

Click on the Album drop-down list, and click on the desired album.

Click on the thumbnail for the photograph you want to send as an e-mail attachment to select it. (Note that you can select only one image when sending mail with PhotoRelay.)


When selecting a picture to send, don't forget that most Internet e-mail servers place a limit on the size of an e-mail attachment—whenever possible, it's a good rule to keep your attachments below 1 MB in size.

Click the SendMail icon on the toolbar—naturally, it looks like an envelope—and PhotoRelay automatically runs Outlook Express (or whatever e-mail program you've chosen in Windows) and prepares a new message, as shown in Figure 11.11. Note that the attachment has already been added; the size of the attached picture is also listed next to the filename, so you can keep an eye on the total file size for the message.

Type the recipient's e-mail address in the To: field (or click the To: button to add the recipients from your Address Book).

By default, PhotoRelay adds a subject using the name of the image, but you can click in the Subject: field and type a new subject if you like.

Click in the message edit box and type the text of your e-mail message.

When you're ready to “post” your e-mail message with the picture attached, click the Send button in the toolbar. Figure 11.12 illustrates a completed message, ready to send.
