Windows XP Users: Notice how a new tab opens up right above the message box where your images are. You can choose to add more photos, or edit the appearance of the photos in the e-mail with some fun effects. Play around with these effects, and choose the image quality on the far right of the toolbar. By default, it will be set to “Medium." If you want to send higher quality photos, click on “High." For lower quality, choose “Low."
To further customize the appearance of your photos, right above the image-editing toolbar, click on “Layout." This way you can modify how they appear in the e-mail next to your text. There are quite a few different features in this section, so be sure to take some time to explore it before sending off your message. Either way, your e-mail will look vibrant, organized, not to mention fun. Give it a try!
Windows Vista/7 Users: You will notice that there is a text box saying [Enter album name here]; click on it to give your album a title. In the same text area, there are also some options for the person to whom you are sending the e-mail ("View Slide Show" and "Download All"). It also says how many photos are in that album, and for how long they will be available on SkyDrive (an online storage tool which carries 25 GB of space; every Windows Live user gets this space for free!). Underneath, you will see a blank box that says "Add more photos." If you wish to add more pictures, click on that box.
Also, you should notice that there is a new tab at the top of the window that says "Photo Album Tools," and under that it says "Format." For this, you can edit the appearance of how your photos are displayed in your e-mail, change the size of each photo, and even edit the privacy of your photo album ("Album privacy," in case you only want certain people to see it). If you wish to attach pictures to the e-mail you're sending, instead of setting up a photo album, click on the paper clip icon to attach a photo instead.
