How to Add Pictures to Emails in Office Outlook


When composing a new message through the Microsoft Outlook e-mail client, which is part of the Microsoft Office software suite, you have the option to include an image or picture. Outlook supports all major image file formats, including .GIF and .JPEG. When adding a picture to an e-mail, you can either embed the image into the body of the message or add it as an attachment.

Things You'll Need

  • PC running Windows XP or later
  • Microsoft Outlook 2003 or later
  • Open the Start menu and click on the "Microsoft Office Outlook" icon.

  • Enter your email username and password and then hit the "OK" button to log in to your account.

  • Go to the "Mail" tab in the lower, left-hand corner of the main Outlook window.

  • Click on the "New" button at the top of the window. A blank message window will open.

  • Fill in the "To...," and "Subject:" and add the desired text to the body of the message.

Embedding a Picture

Attaching a Picture

  • Click on the paper clip symbol in the top menu bar to use the attachment feature.

  • Navigate to the location of the picture you want to attach and hit the "Insert" button. The selected image will now be added to the email message as an attachment.

  • The rules of your email service determines how large of a picture you can attach, so try to keep the file size as low as possible.
