The long and short of it is that the person who sent the message screwed up. Since this is an easy thing to do, I always recommend that people ATTACH photos and other such things to messages, and to avoid trying to embed them into the message. Attaching files is considerably more reliable, and compatible across email programs. It also allows you to improve your overall system security by disabling the loading of images. Spammers can embed a special code into an image that tells them your email address is valid when you load it. Specially crafted images can trigger exploits that allow malware, viruses, worms, and other undesired programs to be installed on your computer. A good first step to combating these is disabling the automatic loading of images in email messages. And as an added bonus, your odds of successfully getting images, sent to you by friends and family, improve as well.
The person with the originals will have to send them again, since the images were never sent the first time. Be sure to state, in no uncertain terms, that they are to ATTACH the files. If they, or you, do not know how, you can surely find copious amounts of information on the topic with a simple Google search.
