I write an email and want to attach a pic. I put the pic in the printer but where do I gofrom here?

I'm assuming it is a photo you wish to email? First you need to SCAN it into your computer where you will save it to a folder, remembering the folder name.

Then you open up the program you use for email and look for "attach file selection". In Outlook it is under INSERT, in other programs including webmail like gmail it will say something like "attatch file". Browse to where you saved the photo, and choose it.

Note that often just scanning a photo print can make a huge file size which may be too large for sending. Various email servers have limits on the size of email you can send.

There are other ways of getting a photo scanned and emailed often involving right clicking which pops up menus that say something like "email file". However how and where that is various from pc to pc depending on the printer and programs you have. The method above works for all types.

How to send a photograph attached to an e-mail It's easy to send a photography to us or to anybody else, using the software that you normally use to send email. However, you can't attach a photo file or any other kind of file unless you know exactly where it's located on your computer. Most pictures will be located within the overall folder "My Pictures" which is within the folder "My Documents"
  1. Compose a message in your email software, such as America Online or Outlook Express
  2. Find the button for attachments on your email software. It may look like a paper clip and it will probably say "attach files".
  3. Click on that button. An explorer window will open.
  4. Navigate to the folder where the file you want to send is located. For example, mypictures/2007Jan/0123.jpg
  5. Click on the name of the picture or other file.
  6. If you want to send more than one file, hold down the "control" key and click on the additional file names.
  7. The display of the email message you're sending will have change. It will now say something like "attachments (1) 0123.jpg"
  8. The message will probably also tell you the size of the file(s) you have attached - "140KB" for example.
  9. Press "send"
  10. Email with attachments takes longer to upload than plain text. If your photos are large, it may take a minute or more.

You scan save the picture as a JPEG or the text document,PDF is prefered, to a temporary place, say desktop . then "attach" it to your eamil. You click ATTACH and then browse to the place the file is, and "Attach it" then ya send it.
You can also cut/copy paste INTO the body of ya email. That works too.

Depends on your make of printer/scanner but generally you put the picture to be scanned in the slot open up your scanner software, press preview if ok press save to file.
