Select the Snapshot tool

in Adobe, and use it to drag a border around the image, then release. The image will be copied to the clipboard, where you can then paste it into your image editor, (MSPaint will do). Save that, and send it.

Or, ask the email recipients if they want to download and install the free Adobe Reader, so they can read the whole document. Then they can extract the images as they wish.

I hope this helps.

I would use jpeg
by chuckieu / May 24, 2006 5:14 AM PDT

My life is a lot simpler when I use universal formats.
Html, jpeg, PDF, etc. They are usable by Windows, Linux, and Mac. Having all images as jpeg makes it a simple task
to either "drag and drop" or attach an image to the PDF
(or other) document. Original images should be saved as
Raw or Tif for maximum resolution. Resize a COPY as
necessary for a situation and save as jpeg. Let us know if you have a program to do this, or need one. There are good FREE ones out there. Good luck. chuck

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
