Windows 7: Windows Live Mail & Windows Live Hotmail Plus

Windows Live Mail & Windows Live Hotmail Plus

I use at times both the WLM & W Live Hotmail Plus.

If I use the Hotmail I can not place a foto in the body of a message however I can send
one as a attchment.

If I use the WLM I can add a text sig, a foto sig, or both if I use the layout format and
stored pics.

What puzzles me is if wish to set-up a permanent sig I can create the text but when I
attempt to add a foto and select the source the system opens but when I select pics
the file is empty.

My sequence to try to set up a sig is as follows:

Select NEW message, then I go to the tools, options, and signature

Thanks for any info

Under Signature, are you then clicking the File radio button, and then Browse, as shown below?

And then in the folder browser, what does the top part say in the lower-right corner of that window (mine is pictured):

Then that is the reason why it's not working. That dialog doesn't allow you to add a picture file to your signature. That dialog is for the use of custom signatures saved in .txt or .html format.

OK So my next question is can pics be placed in HTML format. I did this a long time ago and I think I had to place them in a url.

Yes, that's how it works. You use a format like this:

Code:
<img src="http://your-picture-URL.com" />

OK I saw someplace recently that would create for pics but I don't remember where
it was. Are you familiar with it or anything similar

I'm pretty sure most image hosting sites like Flickr, Photobucket, etc, give you this ability.
