Windows 7: Viewing an iPhone Pix Sent As An eMail Attachment ?

Viewing an iPhone Pix Sent As An eMail Attachment ?


I have been getting some pix taken by a friend on their iPhone. Just Stills, Not Videos
They send it to me as an e-mail Attachment.

When I open them up in my default viewer, irFanView, they open up as a really small image.

I can make them larger in irfanview, but of course the resolution gets pretty bad.

Not too sharp with this kind of thing.

a. Am I just experiencing the limits of the iPhone ?

b. Is there a better way of seeing them larger with good quality still rather than using irfanview ?

**c. Any better way of sending a larger image with still good resolution, than just sending them as an
e-mail Attachment ?

I don't know the iPhone, but it sounds to me like they may need to change their settings so that they're taking pics that have a higher resolution.

The photos are taken in good resolution on an iPhone, they get resized by default when emailed.

There is a work around when sending the photos, not quite as user friendly as the default method,

After working fine for four months in Win7 Ultimate, W.L.M. now displays the bodies of emails as attachments when I first open them. The next time I open them, or after a relaunch of W.L.M., they will probably show normally. How to fix ?

Notepad email attachment problem
Hi I'm not entirely sure this is the best forum for this but couldn't see anywhere else. When you're posting/submitting articles/posts for possible posting on other sites they often ask you to submit it in plain text (Notepad) form by way of an email attachment. I've noticed recently...

Want to send an attachment on an email reply
I cannot see how to do this. Yes, I can right-click a file and choose to email it but it always goes to a new email, not to the one I'm replying to. I can work around it with the copy and paste routine. That sends the file as a picture on the email - not as an attachment.
