Corel MediaOne - E-mail Photos in a Snap

The best part of taking pictures is sharing them, and the most popular way to share digital photos is by e-mail. With Corel® MediaOne™, you get new ways to send your pictures. You can share them as a slide show, include them within the body of an e-mail, or send them as an e-mail attachment. In this tutorial, we'll show you how to amaze people with your fun photos.

What you'll need

  • Corel® MediaOne™ Starter, MediaOne Standard or MediaOne Plus
  • Digital photos you'd like to share

When you complete this tutorial, you'll be able to

  • Send a slide show of your photos
  • Embed photos in the body of an e-mail
  • Attach photos to an e-mail

Note: This tutorial shows you all the options for e-mailing digital pictures. If you're using a Web based e-mail program like Hotmail® or Yahoo!® Mail, go directly to step 15.

Select Photos to E-mail

  1. When you open Corel MediaOne, your photos are displayed under the Organizer tab. To email a single photo, just click the photo's thumbnail to select it. To e-mail multiple photos, hold down Ctrl and click the thumbnail for each photo that you want to e-mail.



  2. Once you've selected the photos, click Share Photos as E-mail in the Home area of the task panel.

E-mail Photos as a Slide Show

  1. At the top of the E-mail dialog box, select Corel Show.



  2. Under Corel Show Name, you can name your show. We called ours "Summer Weekend." Click OK.

  3. Once you click OK, your e-mail program opens a new e-mail message with your slide show attached. In the body of the e-mail are three slides showing your pictures. Now, just address the e-mail, type your message in the body of the e-mail, and send it. That's all there is to it!

Embed Photos in the Body of an E-mail

  1. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 above, but this time, in the E-mail dialog box select Embedded Photos, this means your photos will show up right in the body of your e-mail.

  2. Click the Maximum Photo Size drop-list to choose the size of your embedded photos. A smaller photo size means that you can attach more pictures and still send an e-mail that is relatively easy to download and open. The larger the photos you send, the larger the e-mail will be. Keep in mind the type of Internet connection used by your e-mail recipients. People using dial-up modems will need to wait a long time to download a large e-mail.



  3. Once you've selected your size click OK.

  4. Your photos appear in the body of a new e-mail. You'll have plenty of room at the top of the e-mail to type your message. If you like, you can add words between each picture. Just click near the lower-right corner of the photo, and press Enter. Now you have some room to say what you like. When you're done, address your e-mail and send it!

Send Photos as an E-mail Attachment

  1. Repeat Steps 1 and 2. This time, when the E-mail dialog box opens, select Attachments (original file format).



  2. Select the maximum file size (like in Step 9). When you're ready, click OK.

  3. Again, a new e-mail opens with your selected photos attached. Just address your e-mail, write your message in the body of the e-mail, and send it.

E-mail a MediaOne Show using a Web-based E-mail Account

  1. Follow Step 1 above to select the photos you'd like to share, and then click the Quick Review button at the top of the MediaOne screen.

  2. When the Quick Review starts, click Pause.



  3. Click the Save as Corel Show button (it's the second to last button in the bottom toolbar).



  4. Give your show a name, and then click Save. Once your show is saved click the X in the right corner of the screen to exit Quick Review. Now you can open a new e-mail from your Web-based e-mail service and attach the slide show.
