Having problems e-mailing pictures

I am having problems sending pictures to people via e-mail. It says that it was sent but they don't get the e-mail. I am not sure if it is an issue with the camera software installation or my e-mail. I even copied myself and didn't get the e-mail.

I have been sent pictures from my daughter via gmail I am not on gmail but on email can I access these pictures

Your e-mail provider should allow you to download the pictures on your computer. Be aware if the pictures are to big, most providers don't send them through, or your mail box will be filled in no time.
Why not make a free gmail account, to be able to send and receive thousands of pictures?
After you have the pictures on your computer, you need a program to view the pictures. Windows does have picture viewer, and most operating systems have a viewer, but perhaps you should install a free program like GIMP, to view the pictures.

How do I E-Mail Photos from my Olympus fe-290 on a dell laptop with winows vista. I do have the USB cord, thanks you

method 1 without photo management software:

To e-mail pictures from your camera with your laptop just hook up the camera to your laptop
and widows should come up with a menu asking you what you want to do with this device.
choose open folder to view files this should make the cameras media show up on the desktop.
You should also be able to see the media on the camera under my computer removable storage.
Or if it shows up here as a camera just right click and choose explore device. With most cameras
thier should be a folder called DCIM your pictures should be in this directory. Some cameras may
have subdirectories like video and thumnails in this directory also.

Once you've found the pictures, open you e-mail client or web mail and create a new e-mail. Open the attachment button. this should bring up a file manager that will allow you to find your pictures and select the ones you want to send. Some e-mail programs will have a white clipboard area beside the attachment button. If the e-mail client your using does, then you can just drag and drop
the pictures here to attach them to your e-mail

If your sending large picture files say 6.0mp and up then don't send more than one to 3 per e-mail
otherwise it can chog up your e-mail client for several minutes to hours.

If you want to send many pictures or video files to friends and family members you might consider
Dropbox. This is an online backup and storage program that will allow to share files online.

Method 2 with photo management:

Photo management software can take alot of the manual process of getting photos from your camera and storing them on your hard drive, fixing lighting, fixing red eye, fixing orientation,
tagging, organizing and other things you may want to do with your photos and automating the
process. Some of these have either the ability to create web albums or email pictures directly
from the photo management software. I personally like Picasa from Google

I mostly just veiw pictures on my computer and send them via email. The image mode on my camera is set at 4000 X 3000.Which is a size problem when I go to email them . Should I change the setting down on...

Always shoot at the largest size your camera can handle. When it's time to e-mail, just right-click on the picture file and from the menu that pops up, choose e-mail recipient. Another dialogue box will open up and give you the choice to send large, medium or small images. Choose one and your e-mail opens with your picture(s) attached and your originals untouched.

Why don't you just right-click on the photo and select e-mail. You can even choose the size of the picture to send without affecting your original.

Casio pixels--minimum size available

If I were you, I would take pictures using the highest quality possible because, you never know when you'll want to enlarge a special picture. You can lower the size of the picture right there in your e-mail program. For details on whatever program you use, just go to the help section at the top of your screen when the program is open.

Cannot send pictures by e-mail

You need to change the size of the picture in your computer. Just right-click on the picture and choose e-mail. Choose more options and pick a size. Your e-mail will open with the picture attached and your original will not be touched.

I can transfer the photos from my camera to the PC with the software that came with the camera. When I try to use their e-mail feature I get an error message that says "mail not sent". Yet a few weeks...

Hi , I suspect that your picture files are too big, to transfer to the provided e-mail function of your software. Try changing the resolution to the lowest size a try a few shots. And try to send again. You should be able to save your pictures in a specified directory on your hard drive. You then can attach them to i.e. Microsoft Outlook, or similair e-mail program. I hope that helps.

Getting lines in photos

go to the canon web site they have an advisory out on this I just got mine back actually they kept my S1 IS and sent me a new S5 IS because "they did not have the part and wanted to expedite my repair"

Here is another site I found when I encountered my problem

I sent my camera in per Canons instructions, received an e-mail a few days later(1/9/08) confirming that they would repair it a few more days later (1/16/08)I received another e-mail confirming that it had been repaired and shipped. Today (1/17/08) I got it and to my very pleasant surprise the box contained a new S5 IS!!! I will be sending them a very nice THANK YOU for it after I post this.

PS: e-mail accepting repair 1/9/08
1/16/08 e-mail stating it shipped on 1/15/08,
received 1/17/08 via FED EX
