How To Send A Photo As An Email Attachment On Windows, Mac, iOS & Android Devices?
This straightforward article will show you how to send a photo or image in an email. Photos and documents, as well as any other sort of material, can be attached to an e-mail and forwarded to the recipient for them to open on their computer (providing they have the necessary software). You can also save images to the email page, where you can combine them with pertinent text to illustrate a section of the message or add a caption. Sending images as attachments is actually quite simple once you know how, so here’s how you can do it on a range of devices to get you started.
Image File Dimensions
Before we get into the specifics of sending images as attachments, we’ll go over image file sizes because some image files are too huge to send over email. There are, however, techniques to optimize the sizes of your photographs for an email to prevent surpassing the maximum message size restriction, which we’ll go over shortly.
Another difficulty with large files is that they take up a lot of space in a mailbox, so the person you’re sending it to may not have the necessary space to receive it.
Many programs now have an automatic email send option that resizes the photo before attaching it, or you can downsize the image with photo editing software manually. See our post on resizing images for tips on how to achieve this. The main disadvantage of resizing is that the recipient will be unable to print a large version of the image if you save it at, say, 500 pixels wide.
Instead of adjusting the image’s resolution, you can compress the file to make it smaller. You can either do this within the email system or download software like 7-Zip to compress files outside of your inbox.
If the image is still too huge to send, you can send up to 2GB for free using a free transfer site like WeTransfer.
