Easiest Way to Send Inline Images in Emails

Every once in a while we receive emails that have images in them, these images rather than being attachments are inline i.e. part of the message body including the texts. While there are several ways to achieve this, yet still the problem lies in the fact that most of the email clients are configured to block external images. As a result we see a message like below on opening the mail.


For peoFor people like me who regularly send picture emails of the latest trips, it becomes extremely frustating as the person may or may not see the pics. Here's a way which ensures not only avoiding such notifications for inline images but is also very easy.

I use MS Word and Outlook for this purpose.

Step I

Create a table in a word document and insert pictures in table, you can use your imagination to decorate the table with available styles in MS Word. Once we are done with this, click the E-mail button, which is just besides the print command button.

Step II

Click the E-mal command, you'll find something just like Outlook, just fill in the details and send. That's it :)

I have been using this method for some time now and have been successful avoiding the display images notification for inline images. Of-course we'll have to configure Outlook with the our email accounts.
