Windows 7: Saving e-mail pictures - Where is "save as"

29 Mar 2010   #11

Win7 HP (x64)/Win7 Ultimate (x64)

Hi zzzimba

How about giving Thunderbird a try?
There are some addons that you could try which may help you with the issues you are having.

Hope this helps in some way

I suggested Gmail earlier, because I know it works seamlessly with Outlook 2007. It doesn't really matter what HTML based e-mail client you use, your going to be able to save pictures from it. This person is trying to save e-mailed pictures straight from Outlook. Therein lies the problem.

I forgot about this thread, but I'll continue to search for a registry hack for this function.

Thanks for following this thread along with me Max. I think you clearly understand the dilemma. I just saw this new link you provided and will peruse this in deeper detail when I have more time to dissect it, maybe tonight. Once again however, it seems to be a fairly laborious set of tasks that could easily be accomplished with just a simple "save as" menu option, if it existed.. I'll keep tinkering, hoping and checking back here. "No problem can withstand the assault of sustained thinking".

We will not be denied!

Thanks everyone for your advise and efforts so far...

I wish I had more time to invest in this project. I'll eventually find a way to hack the registry though. Please be patient.

I'll be patient if you just promise not to forget about me. I'll be on stand-by to stand-by with you Max. I appreciate all of the work-around advice but I am heavily invested in using Outlook exclusively at this point. I don't have any other hopes of remedy on the horizon either so my chips are all riding on you partner! I think a successful hack will earn you a place in Heaven, not to mention about twenty million MS dissatisfied customers who would probably rake up your lawn's Fall leaves in exchange for a cute zip-file that would edit the registry and correct this glaring MS OS Outlook omission..

Love ya man, Zimba

Zimba -
I've been asking and looking around, but no joy yet. Hang in there.

Edit: Only thing I've found so far that looks promising is at

Second edit: The above works like a charm on Outlook 2007. Select the e-mail, click tools > macros > the macro you created. Run it, select a folder to save to, and all the pictures are saved to it.

(I didn't do the nifty stuff of making a button or signing the code, but I don't need to save many pictures, so this will do for me.)

A work around could be open the email then click the "Other Actions" button on the top ribbon, then view in browser, you can now right click and save embeded images.

John -
The problem with doing it through the browser is that you need to save each picture individually. The OP was/is looking for a way to save multiple embedded pictures at one time.

I've already provided that link in this thread.

This has actually gotten pretty involved. I've been doing a lot of reading on it. A registry hack can't be done as far as I know, but I might be able to script something. It's just going to take a little time for me to figure this out.
