How To Send 100 Photos In An Email
If you have ever tried to ‘attach’ a bunch of pictures to an email, you have probably bumped into email’s limitations. Most Email will only allow you to send 10 MB’s of attachments, and ‘paperclip’ on 4 attachments at a time.
Those of you who have a Hotmail account can use the free (included) “SkyDrive” feature can get around these limits and send your PowerPoint slideshows and/or multiple images with a few clicks. (Yeah, I know. Bashing Microsoft and Hotmail just got a bit harder to do..)
Sharing pictures with friends and family is now a whole lot easier.
To share multiple photos:
- Click New to create a new email message.
- Type an email address and subject.
- Click Photos, and then click New album.
- Select the photos that you want to create an album with, and then click Open. Hotmail will upload and save the photos to SkyDrive.
- Type a message, and then click Send.
Note: You need to install Microsoft Silverlight to use this feature. This feature is not yet available in all countries or regions.
A short video tutorial is here.
