E-mail Photos from Photoshop Elements 10 - dummies

E-mail Photos from Photoshop Elements 10

By Barbara Obermeier, Ted Padova

Rather than save your file from Photoshop Elements 10 and then open your e-mail client and select the photo to attach to an e-mail message, you can use Elements to easily share photos via e-mail with one click.

When you want to e-mail a photo or a creation, follow these steps:

  1. In the Organizer, select the photos you want to e-mail to a friend.

  2. Open the Share panel and select Email Attachments.

  3. Choose a quality setting for the attachment and click Next.

    Drag the slider labeled Quality, and observe the file size below the slider. If the file is large, you may need to resize it in the Image Size dialog box before e-mailing the photo.


  4. Add recipients or bypass this option.

    The next panel provides settings for adding a message and adding recipients from an Address Book.

    You can bypass adding recipients from your Address Book. If no recipients are listed in the Select Recipients panel, you can add recipient e-mail addresses in the new message window in your e-mail client.

  5. Click Next, and the photo(s) are attached to a new e-mail message in your default e-mail client.

  6. Review the To, Subject, and Attach fields to be certain the information is correct, and then click the Send button.

    By default, Elements uses your primary e-mail client application, which may or may not be the e-mail program you use. You can change the default e-mail client by pressing Ctrl+K (Command+K on the Macintosh) to open the Preferences dialog box when you’re in the Organizer, and then clicking Sharing on the left pane.

    From a drop-down menu in the Sharing preferences, select the e-mail client application that you want Elements to use.
