inline photos yahoo mail?

I have received several emails where the photos are inline...i.e. they are embedded in the email as opposed to as attachments.  the title of the photo shows but the actual photo does not appear or show in the message.  this happens when I am using yahoo mail.  It does not happen when I am using outlook.com or my gmail accounts.  Is this a problem specifically for yahoo mail and if it is how do I resolve this problem?  Is there a special setting or is just a problem with yahoo mail. If it is a problem with yahoo mail what is the purpose of this feature?
thanks,

A lot of people copy and paste images into emails, or drap and drop "copy" them, instead of saving them out to the hard drive and then using the "insert" option.  With some clients it works for the recipient, but for others it doesn't.  It depends on the email client and where the images were copied from.  Sometimes it embeds the images where they are transmitted as part of the email, and sometimes only links to the images' original location are inserted.  If the images are, for example, private facebook ones that are only viewable to the public on login, then it is possible that the email message will only link to the original location of the images and fail to show them.

Right-Click on the frames where the images should be displaying and choose "Properties", View image info, or whatever the option is for the browser you are using.  It is possible that, for security reasons, the images don't display because of default security settings.

If that doesn't work, then have a look through all of your "Outlook.com" webmail settings to see if there are any user settings that may be preventing the images from automatically displaying.

Yahoo undoubtedly considers it a feature that blocks unwanted images.

Are you seeing any kind of thin "banner" at the top of the window, or a link somewhere, that allows you to click and show images that it has blocked?

I am not seeing any kind of thin "banner" at the top of the window or a link that would allow me to click and show images that it has blocked.  Also, we did a test by sending the same email to a friend who has an I Pad.  She was able to see the photos in the email on her I Pad...she then forwarded the same email to the computer in question (the one using Yahoo Mail) and the pictures showed up this in Yahoo Mail.  What is happening here?

There is several methods to embed an image inline, either the sender added the web address or attached it as an attachment /copy image and paste or dragged and drop method.
Could be a problem with the internet connection linking the to the image is a bit slow, could be the size of the image?
Hard to say really capreol  could  you look through these different methods maybe one sticks out as the culprit?

I have the Yahoo mail rich text editor enabled.  It looks to me like the original sender of this particular email, which has about 10 images embedded in the body of the email, (in-line images) has cut and pasted these images.  Outlook.com has no problem with viewing the images but the yahoo mail is unable to display the images.  Could this be a default security thing associated with yahoo mail?  The other thing is that it might be size of the email given there are 10 images...these are actual images...not just thumbnails.  Also, the same email can be opened and viewed with images by an I Pad.
