How Do I Download A Picture From

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013 by | Filed Under: E-Mail Help

Carl from Columbus, Georgia writes: How do I download a picture that has been e-mailed to me in

Carl, it should be pretty easy. When an image is sent as an attachment, you should see a little paper clip icon in the message.

Click on it to display the attachment.

Then you can either right-click to save the photo or click on the download option.

If an image is embedded into an e-mail you can click on the image to select it and then right-click to save in the location of your choice.

You’ll notice in that e-mails containing pictures will be flagged with this photo icon.

Over to the left under Quick views, messages with pictures will all be grouped together in the Photos file. You can click on it for a quick look at all your messages containing photos.

Hope this helps.

    The method prescribed in “how to download pictures in e-mail does not work.
    Clicking on the paper clip does not show any option but to remove, mark as read or delete

      Greg, if you aren’t seeing that option it may be because of the browser you’re using. Depending on what version you’re using of some broswers, not all the options properly display. I just tried selecting a photo attachment in my own and the option to download was there. Though Outlook seems to have moved the option to displaying just below the attachment instead of beside the attachment. If you aren’t seeing the the option, try looking in another browser.
