wildm4n--Do not do this from Windows Photo Viewer.  If the photo .jpg is not yet on the HardDrive save it to the hard drive--carefully noting the location of the Save As.  Then open Windows Live Mail|Email Message.  Choose "Attach File" and Browse to the location of the saved .jpg.  Right click o the .jpg and click Select.

If you use the Attach File feature (not Insert File), does it work then?  ... Thinkpads_User

I believe all you have to do is send the mail in Plain Text rather than HTML.  Click on the pull-down menu at the top left of the Windows Live Mail window, navigate to Options -> Mail then click on the Send tab and choose Mail Sending Format of Plain Text and click OK.

You can either drag the image into the attachment section of the email you are composing, or drag into the message body. The other option would be using the insert file attachment option inside the message options. Hope this helps!

Doing if from Photo Viewer is the same as Inserting a file. That is why I suggested Attach File at the very beginning.

My client wants to do this from a 1 step perspective
He wants to open the viewer, send as an email then have it go out as an attachment
He also uses windows fax and scan - they too go out as a windows album and not as an attachment

what'cha gonna do, right? he's the client

We are using win7 pro 64bit

It is not a one step process. You need to send as Attachment, ergo, it needs to be saved first and not be open in the viewer. Attach it and then verify by opening it after attaching if need be. I do this all the time and it works flawlessly.

>>> what'cha gonna do, right? he's the client <--- Diplomatically explain it must be done correctly or live with the consequences.

By the way, if I have multiple files, I zip them into one to make it convenient on both ends.

a fax does not send attachments it sends an image file (usually .tif) that is scanned line by line and then reconstructed line by line at the recieving end.

Several workable suggestions have been made in response to the original question.  None, however, are one step and wildm4n has been told it cannot be done in one step.  The request for a one step procedure was only mentioned after several posts.

Posts by myself and jcimarron have properly suggested this cannot be done in one step, and, how to get it done.
