Windows 7: Outlook 2003 does not recognize the My Pictures Library

Outlook 2003 does not recognize the My Pictures Library

I'm using Windows 7 with Outlook 2003 - received photos in jpeg - cannot save to librairies "my pictures". "My pictures" is not listed in the librairies drop down menu.
The pictures open is Office Picture Manager. Is there way around this?
On my pc running XP, I simply click open, or save as, and the "my pictures" option is listed, I then choose the folder to save in. Cannot do this in Windows 7 directly from Outlook 2003.
I just tried saving a picture from the internet email (hotmail) rather than Outlook 2003 and it works fine. I open the attachment, click on "save" and my librairies are listed. So why can't I do this his directly through Outlook 2003 which is the email I use on a daily basis?

Thats odd, I can save to Libraries/My Pictures (albeit just a test txt file as seen below) using Outlook 2010. Irene will probably have an idea about this - she is good with Outlook.

I use Outllook 2007. However, I just came across the following in a search...


One functionality incompatibility that exists in Office/Outlook 2003 which can be annoying is that most of the Open/Save dialogs do not support the new Libraries function of Windows 7. This is because Office 2003 uses its own file browser dialogs instead of the ones of Windows.

A workaround for this is to add your favourite locations to the Office Places bar for easy access.


Add your own locations to Save and Open dialogs

When opening Save and Open dialogs in Outlook (and other Office applications), there is a space on the left with some default locations.
How can I add my own locations?

The solution would depend a bit on your version of Outlook and Windows and, to make it even more confusing, the combination of the two matter as well.
Eventually you’ll either end up with a browser dialog from Windows or a browser dialog from Office.
Browser dialog from Office
The browser dialog from Office holds a My Places bar on the left side of the dialog. You’re likely to see this dialog when using Outlook 2003 or previous or when using Outlook on a Windows XP computer. To add your custom folder to it, browse to the folder in the right pane and select it (but do not open it). Then right click in the My Places area to see the Add option.
If the Add option is not available to you, you’ll see a Tools menu button in the right top of this dialog. When you expand that menu button you’ll find an “Add to My Places” option to reach the same results.

The context menu also allows you to sort your locations and change icon size


Hope you find this helps.
