Default Help with e-mailing jpg images

I use Netscape Communicator 4.79 with WIN 98SE to email my photos (as file attachments from Olympus Camedia files).

My file attachments show up as the actual pictures in the receipent's email.

I believe this prevents receipient from saving the file as a jpg image and them manipulating if (like changing it's size or printing it).

How can I send it as a file attachment, without the picture displaying in the email window?

I may not be asking the question correctly, so feel free to expand. Thanks. Ted

Default Help with e-mailing jpg images

While I haven't used Netscape in a long time you should be able to send your pics without them in the body of the e-mail by adding them as an attachment as opposed to inserting as a picture.

For example, in Outlook you have a choice of inserting file or inserting picture. If you insert it as a file instead of insert picture your recipient will only see the jpegs as an attachment not as a picture within the body.

Again, I haven't used Netscape in years but this rule should still apply.

You aren't doing anything wrong. Just tell your friend that in order to save the pic you are sending, just follow these simple instructions:

1.Right-click on the pic
2.Select "Save As..." from the right-click menu
3.Specify a name and location for the pic, and Press the "Enter" key.

Remember this phrase: "Right click is your friend!"

At work we used an e-mail program called Pegasus Mail at one time. There was something weird about it and we had to save files as enclosures instead of attachments to get it to work right. The enclosures always looked just like the attachments I see all the time now. I don't use Netscape so I don't know if that option is available.
