How can I easily send an e-mail with a photo? Seems too complicated. My carrier service is frontier.com. I cannot easily use this software to send a photo to anyone. Do I have to store my photos in the online 'cloud' when I don't want to?

Hi Irene, which Adobe software are you using specifically? (Elements, Lightroom, etc.)

I've managed to solve this problem.
1. Followed the advice in Adobe link http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/848/cpsid_84...
2.Set preferences in Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 Mail to Windows Mail.
3. In Windows live mail I created an association with my yahoo webmail account, this is an option, when you open the live mail programme.
4. I did not put my email provider password in Windows live mail for it to receive mail, since I did not want email to download from my default yahool account. However, this still enables it to send mail out from adobe photoshop elements share function.
5. When you use the Elements 8 share to attach photo files, they are automatically loaded into windows live mail and sent and received! However, as noted above live mail is not used for receiving mail, unless you want to use it as the default programme. So if you have a webmail such as Yahoo mail or Google mail or Windows Live Mail. The above solution worked for me.
