Solved How can I send an entire folder of pictures

November 11, 2017 at 10:28:55
Specs: Windows 10
I am composing an email and need to attach an entire folder of photos. I am unable to figure out how to send the entire folder since when I go to attach it, the folder opens and wants me to choose a (1) photo to send as my attachment. I tried turning the folder into a compressed folder and that works, but then the recipient doesn't see the photos until they click and open each and everyone. That won't work. I need them to be able to see all the photos in a line up (as I do when I open this particular folder). Please keep the answer simple and in layman's terms. My name is "Geek I am NOT" for a reason! :)

You don't have to sign up with File Convoy or even give your email address. I am very fussy but have had no trouble at all with it.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

The recipient can double-click on the zip file to open it up then highlight all the pictures in the zip file and copy and paste to a new folder to view them.

Thank you for your quick follow up. Your suggestion sounds simple enough, but I can't count on the various recipients being tech-savvy enough to know to even do that, or to know how to do that. I'm a perfect example, since I would not have known to do it or how to do it. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the only way for me to send all the photos so that they can immediately be seen in my email is to attach them one at a time, right? This will be time consuming since there are slightly more than 100 images which is why I was hoping for an easier way. Another problem I encountered with Yahoo is that my zippered folder is more than Yahoo can handle (25MB). Any other suggestions/feedback is appreciated.

It'd probably be better to post the photos to a photo-hosting page (i.e.--Shutterfly, Google Pics, Photobucket), then just send a link to the recipients to access the photos on whichever site you choose.

If you try to send 100 photos at once your email limit is likely to be busted whatever way you do it. The best way is to put them on a free hosting website instead, such as this one:
http://www.fileconvoy.com/index.php

Once they are on there you just give the recipients the web address File Convoy give you and they can download them. I've used the site many times.

Test it with a few files just to see how it works.

EDIT:
Oops, I overlapped with response above (typed too much LOL).

Thank you for taking time to provide a response. Unfortunately I am not signed up with any online photo storage site (nor do I want to). Still searching for another solution if at all possible. I may just have to attach each photo one at a time and limit each email to 50 photos hoping that Yahoo can handle that.

Are you familiar with Dropbox?

There is a free 30-day trial with (it appears) full service... After-which there are two levels of subscription.

File Convoy wins. Thank you everyone. I hate to have to pick only one "best answer" since all responses were equally helpful!
