How to Add a Picture to an Email

Adding pictures to your emails lets you share photographs with your email recipients. Depending on your email provider, you will usually add a picture by including an attachment to the email. The recipient learns about the picture through an attachment notification or icon in the email. When adding pictures to your email, you can use pictures that are on your hard drive or on an attached storage device, flash drive or CD.
