When I email photos using picasa, why do my friends have to download

view them with out having to download every picture seperately?

Hi Wee08,

    I just emailed myself 4 photos from Picassa using my Gmail
account, and there was an option to "View all photos" above the 4
thumbnail pictures. When I clicked that link, all 4 opened on a new

   When you want to email more than one picture, with the thumnail
pane open, select the first picture by clicking once ont he thumbnail
image. Press the "ctrl" key and hold it down, while clicking on the
other photos you want to send. You may release the "ctrl" key when 
you are finished selecting images.

   Notice each photo is going into the photo tray on the bottom left
of your screen.

  Next, click on the email icon at the bottom of the screen.

  Select your email account and send. I suggest trying this once,
selecting 2-3 photos, and send them to yourself to see how this works
for you.

  Another thought... all email clients have limits on the size of
files allowed to be sent via email. Some, like Hotmail and Yahoo have
smaller allowances than others. It may be possible that your files are
too large for some email clients.

  Please try the method I outlined for you and let me know if this
worked for  you.

  If not, please request an Answer Clarification, and allow me to
respond before you rate this answer. I want to be sure you get this
issue resolved before the answer is closed out.

  Another option would be to upload your photos in a batch to a free
photo storage site like Flickr,   and send
your friends a link. This goes much faster to all concerned; your
email will go faster, and your friends can get their email faster, and
save their hard drive space! They simply need to click the link in 
your email.
