This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

On Hotmail you do image linking, you have to have the image on some site to be able to link it on Hotmail.

For example this image:


You open it on your browser then you go to Edit > Select ALL then Edit > Copy, using the mouse did not work for me on Firefox.

Then on Hotmail at the compose message page you click on the message body and press either Ctrl+V or Edit > Paste

And it works just fine.

There is also this video that shows how to do it on Hotmail, Yahoo and Gmail:

Use the Google Chrome browser for Hotmail. Open new email and select picture inline option from Insert menu next to send menu. Select the picture file to upload as inline. You can see the picture attached as inline.
