Hey, I wanted to know if it’s possible to put an image in an email – I mean directly embed an image in message and not as an attachment. Can this be done?
As you probably know, any digital file can be sent with email. The standard practice is to send the file (or files) as an email attachment. But is there a way to put an image “inside” an email message and not as an attachment? Yes, there is! In fact there are many! And in this post I shall be detailing two methods to do this with links to a few more!
There is no direct option in the Gmail interface to put an image in an email – you can only attach a photo or a picture. However, a simple solution is available that takes just a few seconds to execute and involves using Google Docs. The steps are detailed below and check the image slideshow (below) for screenshots.
The second method is to use the Photo e-mail feature of the free Windows Live Mail email client. This program comes installed on Windows 7 computers – at least I got it on my VAIO. You can also download Windows Live Mail and install it on Windows XP and Windows Vista based machines. Read “send photos over email using Windows Live Mail” for detailed instructions with screenshots on how to use Photo e-mail feature of the email client. FYI, you can also attach photos to email the normal way in Windows Live Mail via the “Attach” link/button.
At the time of writing, there was no option in Yahoo or Hotmail to put an image into an email unless the image is already online. Thus, you need to first upload the image on the web – I suggest using a photo sharing web site such as Flickr (owned by Yahoo). By the way, your email message with the embedded image will appear fine to both Hotmail and Yahoo recipients.

In Japan, the term Sudoku is copyrighted. It was coined by Maki Kaji, president of Nikoli, a company that publishes puzzle books. The Japanese, however, still refer to the puzzle by it's original name - Number Place. Sudoku means digit-single in Japanese. By the way, Sudoku did not originate it Japan. The popular puzzle was invented by an American architect, Howard Garns and first published as Number Place in the May 1979 issue of Dell Pencil Puzzles and Word Games. In Japan, it was first published by the monthly Nikoli magazine. Sudoku gained worldwide popularity because of the efforts of Wayne Gould who not only convinced The Times UK to publish it but also developed a program that would churn out countless puzzles of specified difficulty. Gould was also responsible for taking Sudoku to the United States where it was published in several daily newspapers across the country. [more...]
