The exact procedure I suppect will depend on what your email client is... you don't say.... but most have the ability to do it.

Thanks. My email client is AOL.com and I also have Outlook Express on a very antiquated dial up.

I was hoping for a general procedure rather than one restricted to an email client.

Help with the procedure much appreciated.

thanks

Just a recommendation - You can rename (filename) the picture with the name that you would like to include in the text. Or in Outlook Express - Compose a new Message in Rich Text (HTML) Format. Then go to Insert menu-->Picture to insert the picture in the message. Try different alignments to add text at your preferred positions.

Each email client is slightly different...

Can't help with AOL, wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole.

OE is quite easy as bkmgy says, or rename the pictures to be sent and use the attachment feature, rather than having them in the body of the mail.

If your using dialup don't make the file size to big...

Whatever, whichever, email tool you use to subtext (hopefully) a picture with the name of the flower under the actual picture, all leave one bug in the ointment, and that is what you use to place the text "here" may display that same text in the recipient's email tool "there," if at all.

If you really want control, and absolute placement of where that text is to be positioned, then you really want to include that text into the actual image of the flower. Now, you could use many different image editing programs (and I prefer either the free, and included MS Paint program within Windows, or the many featured and free tool IrfanView) but use the tool that you like, and there really are a slew of them, many free).

So either include the name of the flower within the less intrusive area of the image (perhaps having some contrasting outline edge to the font color used), or just add a small caption area to the image (making it physically pixely bigger) and add the text there.

Good luck.
