In LR Classic, I have gone thru the procedure of selecting the image; then File>Email Photo> ...The email form appears with a thumbnail of the selected image positioned in the field reserved for "Attached Image"; the implication is that the selected image will be sent as an attachment. When I send the email to myself, however, the selected image arrives embedded in the email, - not as an attachment.
How can I send the selected LR image as an attachment?
Ideally, I would like to attach the image to an email like I would attach any document to an email; i.e., click on "attach" within the email and then upload the target document/image by opening it. Can not open a single image to make the attachment, however. At least, that's the way a computer-challenged person, like myself, has tried to do it.
I would be grateful for any help with this.
Depending on the e-mail client you are using, even though the image is embedded in the message, there should be a way to see it as an attachment. If not, you could export a copy from Lightroom and then use your e-mail as you normally do and attach the exported image as a normal attachment.
