    Hello, all--

    This may a simple one, and hope I'm in the right forum.

    How do I send images in the body of an e-mail, but not as attachments nor as part of an e-zine?

    I am promoting my new-ish cartoonist/illustrator website and would like to update clients with e-mails that include recent jobs (artwork). Since this is for business, no attachments. I'd like to keep this simple, so not really looking to create an e-zine either.

    I used iWeb to design the site, pushed it beyond what it's supposed to do, so updating one page or creating a "latest news" page, then relaunching the site is a major pain in the coconuts. Until I migrate to another program, I'd like to keep in touch with clients and potential clients via warm and fuzzy e-mails.

    How do I get the message out to them, with pictures, without attachments?

    Thanks, all,

    Seems like you would have to use HTML to do this. Are you adept?

    I would create a quick webpage that says everything you want to say then once uploaded and you are viewing it in Safari press 'Command + i'. It will then create a HTML email of that web page (complete with live links) that you can send to whoever you like.

    thanks, but

    Thanks for your responses...

    I'm not very adept at creating HTML code.

    I don't want to send my clients links to my work as that would be asking them to work a little harder, or go that extra step, to view my images. I want to make this as customer-service friendly as possible by having the image right there in the e-mail.

    If I were more proficient at web design, or had better luck with iweb, I would do iut that way. I thought image-in-the e-mail would be easier.

    Thanks again

    If you don't want it as an attachment isn't the only other way using HTML? I'm not aware if it's possible to embed data in an email otherwise without it being an attachment.

    But making a very simple HTML page to mail is super super easy, and to embed an image just
    <img src="" />

    I'm pretty sure that's how companies, like MacZot, do their beautiful emails.

    It is, I just viewed the raw source. All it is, is html code.
