How to Save an Image Embedded into an Outlook Email Message


Someone has sent you an image through email but instead of attaching the image as a file, they’ve embedded it directly into the email message. You use Outlook for as your email client on your PC. How do you grab the picture and save it to your desktop?


1. Open the email message in Outlook (I’m using Outlook 2007)

2. In the toolbar at the top of your screen, choose Other Actions, View in Browser. Your email will open in your browser window.

3. In the message opened in your browser window, hover your mouse/cursor over the image and right-click. Choose “save picture as” from the list of options that comes up.

4. A Save dialogue box will open. Navigate to the folder where you want to store the image, name it, and click save.

Now you can close this browser window (and your email message), go to that folder on your computer and, Voila!,access the image.
