? re: sending pics using Windows Live email program

by zeebell / June 15, 2013 1:41 PM PDT

Up until a few days ago, when embedding an image in an email to someone, the image would go in very nicely where I wanted it placed -- with no borders of any kind -- just the image.

Now, all of a sudden, when I use the single photo method like I always have and take the image from My pictures folder on my pc, it places a border or black line on the right side and underneath the image.

I don't like that and would like to be able to send them like they used to.

Any ideas on how to get rid of those lines. They are not on the image and never showed untl a few days ago. Would a windows update have changed this?

Thanks.

That's the problem with this app.

There's a reason why I don't use the MSFT Live apps. You nailed it again.

Would you please recommend an alternative?
by zeebell / June 17, 2013 6:23 AM PDT

I know there are other email programs out there -- hotmail (don't care for too much); thunderbird; and of course, web-based -- would you recommend an email program that would not place those lines around the image, and just show the image?

Thanks

I use Outlook (too many versions)

And many web based email systems (gmail) and it didn't do that here.

Do you have a link for one of the "good" Outlook versions (LOL)?
