OK, Time for another "How to I DO this" and I know
this is the best place to ask.
I have a need to be able to send many PNG files which are actually screenshots showing how to do something or what they should see when they try to do it to a number of people. I have a whole library of these covering various problems.
On the first time out, the screen capture program even by default adds it to the email as an attachment. This may not seem such a big deal but since PNG files by default are opened as Windows Photo manager or some such quite often the result is not usable or does not convey the original meaning in its entirety, I have tried all kinds of auto-size and such to get the image down to a what I saw when I made it but that still is not a solution. PAINT does the best job but it is not the default PNG viewer on many (most) systems.
The perfect solution would be to embed the image within the email at about 50% of the original. I can do that now, but it takes a LOT of manipulating to do so. Right click send as email wont do it. Opening an email, inserting the png, and resizing to 50% is the only way I have found.
Is there a utility or method that I am overlooking?
All I want to do is right click the correct screenshot.png and choose send by email and have that option open an email in outlook with the image already inserted at 50%.
Then I can add any necessary info and I do not have to worry about Outlook Blocking the attachment since there isn't one.
Plus I know they see it at a size that can fit on one page.
Thanks for any advice.
