View Full Version : Attaching emails as files to email rather than embedded
15th of April 2008 (Tue), 21:41
I am running MacBook Pro with Iphoto 08 and Leopard. This is really dumb but I cannot figure out how to email an image file as an attachment. Every time I try it comes up embedded in the email.
I know I should be asking this on an Apple support site but I thought I would come straight to the experts. Any thoughts?

I presume you are using the Mail application; if not, this may not apply.
I think you may be misinterpreting what you are seeing. Mail displays attachments as part of the message if it can understand them, as with PDFs or common image formats. It may look like it is embedded, but it is attached. This can be confusing if you attach an image to an email as Mail will display it wherever the insertion point (= cursor) was in the message at the time it was attached, however, it is still an attachment, and I suspect that even recipients using Mail will see it appended, but I have not verified this.
Actually, short of including some html with a link in your email, I don't know how you would embed an image.

So the Mac experts are on the Digital Camera forum? This should be posted in General Chat forum as it's not related to camera's at all

Probably not all of them, but I'll bet there are some. Until one comes along, the OP will have to settle for me.

True; did you report its misplacement?
P.S. If not, no matter - I just did.

I run 10.3 and like xarqi says in Mail application it does look embedded on your machine but when recieved by my PC owning friends it does indeed appear as an attachment on their machine.
Hope this helps.
