photos

My daughter has an XP puter and I have a mac mini with tiger. I drag and dropped some jpeg photos from iPhoto and she was unable to open them, 4 photos. So I went to share and sent them one at a time and she could view them. Is this normal? Also can you put more than one photo in an e-mail using the share menu?

iPhoto

You can put multiple photo's in an email using the share menu by selecting more than one photo. You can select multiple photos by holding down the Apple Key, next to the space bar, and clicking on the images you wish to send.
Dragging and dropping photo's from iPhoto should work. You did not mention what, if any, error message you received when your daughter tried to open them. It is not unusual for Win machines to not recognize the file type, for some reason, but if your right click the file and choose "Open with" and use the program you would normally view JPG files in, all should be well.

Hope this helps

Open iPhoto and select the Album/Folder that you wish to send the pictures from. You should see all the pictures in that folder, on the screen at the same time.
SINGLE click on the first picture that you want to send. Hold down the Apple key (next to the spacebar) and SINGLE click on the next picture that you want to include in the email. Repeat until you have all the pictures you want to send. Bear in mind that there is almost certainly a limit to the size of any email, and attachments, that you can send through your ISP. There will also be a receiving limit set by the ISP of the person to whom you are sending these pictures. Let's stick with just three pictures for this exercise.
In iLife 05, which I am assuming you have since you have a mini, there is an icon bar across the bottom of the screen. Rotate, Edit, Book, Slide Show, etc. You will find one that says Email, click it. This will bring up a dialog box asking what size you want the pictures to be. Choose medium.
Click the compose button. This will start the process and eventually Apple Mail program will launch. You may have to move the front screen out of the way as the email containing the pictures is actually behind the main window. Enter the email addresses and click send.
Done.
Now, if you are going to introduce wrinkles like AOL, Yahoo, Excite, MS Entourage or some other email client or ISP, that is a whole other ball game.
Good luck

Worked just like you said, great. I saw somewhere in my fumbling around a window that had something like make photos windows friendly and clicked it so I'm hoping my family that are on windows machines will be able to open them. Where did I see that, I can't find it anymore?

Windows Friendly

In reply to: Thanks

In the edit window, attachments then choose Send windows friendly attachments.
Keep it checked for everyone. All it does is put the extension onto the end of a file. Like .jpg or .doc or .xls This tell Windows what sort of file it is and what program to open it with. The mac does not really need it but it does not hurt anything if it is there.
The slide show is purely an iPhoto thing and is not attachable.
Glad you got it sorted out
