I need a quick way to copy a picture to the body of an email.

When I drag a jpg onto an Outlook 2003 email, it makes it an attachment. But to copy the picture into the body of an email I need to open the picture in MSPaint, choose Ctr+A to Select All. Hit Ctrl+C to copy it to the clipboard, hit Alt+F4 to close MSPaint, then paste the image where I want it. That's fine for one picture, but not for 20!

Is there an easy way that involves ragging the picture, perhaps with a special keystoke?

Thanks,

Try to paste it ! :)

Just check you have the HTML format option checked on the e-mail, just because text e-mails doesn't allow images.

Hope it helps.

Pasting it is not the problem!

All the effort I desceribed was getting the picture onto the clipboard. When you drag it, you go from Windows Explorer to Outlook. I hoped for something nearly that easy.

I do not want to have to copy the image to the clipboard

You should paste the image, not the file. If you copy (or drag) the file, the file is attached.

However, you can try to use the menu Insert -> Image. I think it will work.
