Picture Manager: How do I email pictures with pix title and not n

    I understand how to email pictures in Microsoft Picture Manager. I often
    like to have the pictures appear in the body of the email rather than as
    attachments. It makes for an easy quick read by the recipients. I also like
    to enter a title for the picture, e.g., "Tom and Sally swimming," which MSPM
    allows me to do. I want to enter each title once, on my file copy of the
    picture, and I want the email recipient(s) to see the same title without my
    having to re-type it. But when an email is created, MSPM automatically
    places the rather useless "name" of the picture, not the informative title,
    under each picture. The name is a nonsense number generated by my digital
    camera, e.g. "P102633." How do you adjust MSPM so that, when it generates an
    email in this way, it automatically places the title and not the name under
    the picture??

    Many thanks to anyone who can help.

    Then you will need to change the "rather useless" name generated by your
    camera to something more meaningful by using the "rename" feature. You
    will see that option if you right click on a picture.

    I actually have done it that way for several years, that is, I've entered my
    descriptive title where the rather useless camera name is. Doing it this
    way, MS Picture Manager works great for sending an email ... my descriptive
    title shows up nicely underneath the picture in the body of the email. But
    as sophisticated as Picture Manager is, MS left out a slide show! Windows
    Photo Gallery has a nice slide show, but when I switch to Gallery for a slide
    show, the titles that show with the slides are NOT the descriptive title, but
    are the "captions" in the Photo Gallery format. Also, Gallery has a
    dumbed-down interface with email ... you can only add pictures as attachments
    to emails, not in the bodies of emails. Bottom line ... if you want a photo
    library with pictures that can both be embedded in body of an email and shown
    in a slide show, you need two Microsoft products. Very awkward and
    incovenient, especially because of the need to enter the descriptive titles
    twice. Any solution? Thanks very much for any reply.

    Picture Manager comes with later versions of Office. Photo Gallery comes
    with later versions of Windows. Perhaps the answer is to use the
    software that came with your camera.
