Forwarding individual photo from a file.
« on: Thursday 25 April 19 13:54 BST (UK) »
I used to be able to forward, or attach, one selected photo from a file. Now all of a sudden I find that when I do so it sends whole file. Have windows 10.

Normally, each photo is held in its own file, with a suffix like ".jpg".

Is the picture you want to send held inside another file, such as a Word document or PDF file?

If so, you will need to extract the picture to a file of its own first, or just copy it and paste it into the email.

If you let us know how the photo is being held now, someone here will know how to extract it!
Looking at ALSTON in south Ribble area, ALSTEAD and DONBAVAND/DUNBABIN etc. everywhere, HOWCROFT and MARSH in Bolton and Westhoughton, PICKERING in the Whitehaven area.

That is what it sounds like... if it is in a Document etc, the File will go!
