    Hi, I have a .AVI movie file from my digital camera that has been imported into iPhoto 5. The movie plays fine on my iMac (it opens in Quicktime) but when I emailed the file to my brother it was saved and sent as a .JPG.

    Is there a way that I can email the movie file and not a .JPG screen-grab?

    Thanks, Andrew

    welshandrew -- would you share with the rest of us how you figured out to do this? I have been wanting to do the same thing, and have not figured it out.

    Thanks!

    Of course I will!

    Instead writing the email and then attaching the file directly from the iPhoto library, I opened iPhoto and dragged the file onto the desktop, and then attached that file to the email and it worked.

    i have a casio exilim that creates .avi files. when imported into iphoto 6.0.4 they show up as blank frames. when i try to play them thru qt i get a dialogue box that tells me i'm missing components.
    do you know of a fix? what brand of camera made the .avi you can see. i use a mac mini (power pc). thanks
