How do I send multiple pictures in email ?

I dont know, this might be stupid
Ok so I have a bunch of pictures on my computer that I need to email to someone. Is there anyway I can send them all at once instead of one picture at a time I have them all saves in one file but from what I can tell I have to send them one picture at a time. Any help?

If you have a bunch of pictures in a folder and want to email them, look at the sizes (KB) before you hit send.  When dealing with images for the web and email remember these 2 words:  RESIZE and OPTIMIZE.

That is, unless you are really wanting to send someone a bunch of pictures sized 2592 x 1944 pixels weighing in at 2.5 MB each.  Several images that big can bring things to a halt.

A couple of years ago, a girl in the front office brought in her digital camera and uploaded about 20 images into her PC and mass emailed them to almost everyone in the office.  Not only did she lock up all our local computers (Lotus Notes) but she also locked up a main server in the home office in Memphis.  Imagine - she locked up a main email server of a Fortune 100 company on a Monday morning with her full-size wedding pictures!  :D

I always resize and compress (in that order) images before I email them.  Here's a handy and free utility to do both at once: http://www.rw-designer.com/picture-resize  It's simple drag and drop operation.  Read the instructions on the web page.  You can check the finished size (KB) of your pictures by right-clicking and choosing properties.

Always work with copies on images - save your originals.  Once you get your pictures resized and optimized, you can put them into a seperate folder.  Right-click on that folder and choose a "Compress and Email " option.  WinZip or WinRar are two popular compressing/zipping utilities and they will have similar choices in their right-click menus.

1. right click on clear area of desk top
2.left click "new"
3left click on "folder"
4.right click on picture
5,left click on "copy"
6. go back to little picture of the folder on desk top
7.right click o "paste"
8 type e-mail
9click on attachments, get brouse
10.go back to folder on desk top
11click on "folder"
12 click on "open"
13 is now in attachments.
14 Voila!!
15. oh yeah, clck on "ok"
16 click "send"
only problem is, now how do you get the
new folder" off the desk top?

If your email was sent successfully along with the attachment, you can either keep or delete the folder.  First check with your recipient to be sure the attachment was received. If you no longer need the folder, you can delete it.  To delete a folder or file, right-click on the icon and choose Delete.  And be sure to stay away from the fat.

Create a folder on your desktop with all the pictures you want. Highlight the pictures you want to email and the folder box will automatically present "email the selected items". Click on that. Then click "Make all my pictures smaller". It will then bring up your email which you can address and send.

Thanks so much for the tip---(pretty obvious) but I hadn't figured it out (was OK with the single ones and did multiples in a clumsy compromise). Cheers very much

I did the instructions above, but now there doesn't seem to be any send button to send the email. i've just got this big attachment email but I can't send it. How do you send it?

What version of Windows are you using (or, are you using a Mac?), and what email provider (gmail, yahoo, Hotmail, etc) and program are you using for email (Outlook Express, Outlook, Thunderbird, 'webmail', etc) ?

Oh sorry didn't know you reply so fast I've been loading up to my iPad as my macs down and I have access to a pc on windows 7, but I'm terrified as I'm sending fashion samples pics for fashion stores and as far as I'm aware no one in the uk in the arts use pc so I'm worried the files won't show up if I send from a pc.. .?

It doesn't work like that for me, it only does ONE at a time. But I need my pictures sent to someone, because they are very important files.

Re: How do I send multiple pictures in email ?

How you can do this depends on the brand and version of OS you are using and the particular email
Client and provider you are using.
In general you can drag n drop multiple pictures into an email, but, depending on OS and mail version you are using, maybe not... If you post the details of what you are using we may be able to help better..
