Windows 7: WLM 2011 & "Inserting" Images...They're Smaller

WLM 2011 & "Inserting" Images...They're Smaller

In Outlook Express, I could insert images (often helpful when typing instructions with visuals) and they would be the original size. In WLM 2011, the program automatically reduces the size which often means portions of whatever I insert can't always be seen good enough. Attaching keeps the original size but I need to line insert sometimes. Is there a way (setting) to change that won't effect the size of the picture when inserted vs attached?
Thanks

do the picture as an attachment instead of using Photo Album or Single Picture, that is the only way I know to keep the original size. You can also copy and paste the image into the body of the email from the program you are using to edit from, that will keep the same size also

Thank you for replying so quickly. I know I can attach the photos to keep their original size but like I noted above, I sometimes need and prefer to insert them. I hadn't tried copy/paste from my photo editor so I tried it. No, it didn't remain the original size. It reduced to the same size as using the insert option. Thanks tho.

If you do it through "Live Skydrive" you might find this keeps the pictures the correct size, but for skydrive you need to make a microsoft account.
Someone else might have a suggestion but that is about all I know it does

Not a fan of Skydrive! I guess it's just one of those things I'll have to accept.
Thanks for your time.

I'm on WEmail 2012 (used to be WLM) and when I Insert->Single Photo (or click on an existing) a Picture Tools / Format Ribbon tab is shown.

On this ribbon tab I can change the size of the picture. Choose Original and lock aspect.
Do you get this in WLM 2011?
