Windows 7: Transferring Paint image to email

Transferring Paint image to email

I tried to transfer a paint image to email but got a sign saying that "there is no email programme associated to perform the requested acton. Please install an email programme or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Defaults Programme control panel". This is despite Paint saying that it has all the defaults (?)

I have Windows Live Mail but I think I may need Windows Live Essentials in order to transfer paint to email...is that right? Are they connected?

Windows Live Essentials doesn't come up as a programme that I have, i.e. when I type Windows Live Essentials into the Start window it just says to go online to get it; however, it IS listed as a programme I have under the control panel (uninstall section), i.e. Windows Live Essentials 2011 so I guess it is out of date. (Do I delete this programme)

So, do I need to get the latest Windows Live Essentials in order to send an email from paint? (I have Windows Live Mail) If so, how do I do this?


I am in Windows 7 (Firefox browser).

Hi,
Click the Start button and All programs
Windows essentials will be on the bottom of the list

You have to be signed into photo gallery to use the share

It's almost better to use a normal attachment to send inside the email.

I only have windows essentials 2011 listed under "uninstall programmes" (perhaps due to it not being the recent version) i.e. not under all programmes, which is what I said in my OP

I disagree that sending a normal attachment is better (via Paint) than sending an email from Paint. This is because it is indirect, i.e. entails having to delete the file later so I would have preferred to learn how to send an email from Paint which is the reason I started this thread.

Are you saying it is necessary to use Windows Essentials in order to send an email in Paint section? If so, then I need to install the latest one i.e. 2012?

As mentioned in my OP, I am in Windows 7. Yes, I would appreciate your help in this matter. However, I already resent Windows Live Mail since it duplicates emails that I have in hotmail, i.e. is unwanted and takes up space. Ideally I would love to delete Windows Live Mail but there seems no way to do this (it is not listed as a programme under uninstall programme section). Is there a way of stopping this duplication or am I only able to get hotmail because of Windows Live Mail? Sorry this is a bit of a side issue.

To clarify, I just don't want to encourage more use of Windows Live Mail so, if aligning it to Paint does this then I would rather do without it.

Paint is a very old program and not ever going to get any updates
The protocols date very far back

Like I said before unless someone knows how to super geek this ?
Download the latest version of WE 2014
Sign into photo gallery and I believe live mail will also be updated to the most recent version too
And use photo galleries Share/ email listing.
