Tech, Teaching and Me

Trying to turn off my brain by writing it down

Wired Wednesday 9/3/14 Embed or Attach in an Email

on September 3, 2014
Today’s Wired Wednesday tip is all about embedding files to and in your email.
 
There are TWO ways to add an attachment.
#1– You can simply click the paperclip
#2-Click, hold and drag and drop the file/picture/pdf into the body of the letter. You can also click, hold and drag and drop the file into the gray box in the bottom of the email for the item to be attached in the usual way.
You can tell the difference if you SEE the picture or file in your email (embedded). If you see it as an attachment, then it is attached.
To print or save an EMBEDDED file, click on the file in the email and drag it to the desktop (or wherever you would like to save it).
Here is the link for written directions

And, for those visual learners (like me), I included a quick screencast (1 minute) to show you how to do it.
**As an FYI, I uploaded the Screencast (created with Screencast.com –free version)  to my Education Youtube channel (everyone has one with their teacher email), used an education setting on the video, disabled comments, disabled ratings, and listed the link as unlisted (only those with the link will find it). Then, I used SafeShareTV to create a no ads, no side distractions for viewing. These are all the safety precautions I use with the uploaded videos.
