"Email photo sharing made easy."
Nowdays is a lot easier to share photos with others online than it was in the past. For example you can upload them in a social network (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc.) or use an online service to host your image and share its link to others. But if you want to make sure that only specific individuals check your photos and no one else, you can send them as email attachments. Ashampoo Photo Mailer will help you do that easily, as it can optimize images and customize them beforehand so that you won’t have any issues when sending them with an email service provider.
Not a troublesome installation at all. If you’d like to check the system requirements, in the first step click the button located on the bottom left corner and you’ll be redirected to the corresponding page in Ashampoo’s website. A few steps afterwards you’ll be prompted to choose between Express Installation and Custom Installation. Pick Express if you’re OK with the default installation settings, otherwise select Custom and configure the settings yourselves. The installation operation will begin right after that step.
Supported operating systems are Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8 (32/64 bits).
Even though they take up a considerable amount of system resources, the animated graphics in the program’s interface give it a modern feel that’s both attractive and neat. When you first open the program you can see a big area in the center of the window where the photos you add will be listed. On the right hand side is a sidebar with buttons that let you add files/folders in the program or delete the current ones. After adding the photos you want to send you can click on the arrow button positioned on the bottom right corner and continue to the next screen, where you’ll compose your message. In the step after that one you can adjust the quality vs. size slider and send the email.
First of all, you can add as many photos as you like. There’s no limit on that. Then, to use the program you must set an account that will be sending emails; you have to enter your email account’s details (first name, last name, email address, username, password, port, email server and encryption) and then you can proceed to compose the email you want to send, as if you were using your casual (web-based) email client. When you finish creating the email you can move on to the next screen, where you can see the provider’s allowed size for attachments and the size of your attachments. If yours exceed the allowed size, there’s a slider which you can move to increase/decrease the quality of the files, and consequently their sizes. The next step is the last step, where the email with the attachments is going to be dispatched.
You can store more than one accounts in the program and select which one you want to use each time.
Photo Mailer has no cons.
There’s Easy Email Photos (paid), but it’s not as good since it’s quite outdated. However it provides basic photo editing functions, so it can be quite helpful to some people. XnView (free) provides an email function along with the rest of its features too.
This program is based on a unique and simple idea which can now help a lot of users share their photos the traditional way - emailing.
