Adding a photo to your mail allows you to instantly share special events with loved ones, or simply illustrate your point.
With AOL 4.0i or above, you can insert photos directly into your email - either as a standalone picture, or even as a background!
Click on the button that has a picture of a camera on it. This is found on the toolbar above the message window on your email form. (See the illustration to the right). Here you'll find options to insert a picture, or insert a picture as a background image.
There are other easy ways of inserting images into your emails too.
Click on the "File" menu, and choose "Open Picture Gallery ...". This will show you small Thumbnail images of pictures on your hard drive. Click on one of these, and the picture will open up at full size. Then you can simply click your mouse on the picture, and holding the mouse button down, drag the picture into the message window on your email. Release the button, and the picture will be inserted into your email!
i have AOL as well and i'm on dial up. i would have broadband but i live in the middle of nowhere! now that i'm running XP i NEVER get kicked offline. seems on my old computer with ME i was getting kicked offline, run dll errors, programs not responding and lockups all the time. i'm happy now.
