    Hello,
    Using Microsoft Outlook 2003.
    Every time I try to drag and drop a picture in an Emailt it turns into an attachment.
    When I right click my pictures I do not have the option to insert.
    I have scoured the Microsoft FAQ pages and can't find any reference about how to be able to insert pictures with Outlook

    At one point I could actually do this but all of a sudden it is impossible to do..
    Could I have downloade an update that twisted thing s up or is there a setting somewhere I can tweak toget Outlook to allow me to insert instead of attach photos when I drag and drop?
    :confused: :eek:

    Or...place the curser where you want the picture to be inserted then from the menu bar:

    Insert>Picture then in the dialog box browse to the picture file to be inserted, etc....
