In Outlook for Mac 2011 Essential Training, author Alicia Katz Pollock provides a comprehensive overview of the full-featured email, calendar, and scheduling application from Microsoft. The course covers the key fundamentals of the program, including sending and receiving email, creating and managing contacts, and scheduling tasks and appointments. It also covers Outlook 2011 organizational features such as the Media Browser, Conversation view, My Day, the Scrapbook, and more.
One of the most common uses of email is to send pictures to friends and family. Here are several ways to include photos in your email messages. Go up to the Email button on the left to create a blank email message. I'll start in the subject line, introducing the picture. Then press Enter on your keyboard to make a few blank lines. Click on the Picture button on the right side of the toolbar and you will get two choices: Photo Browser and Picture from File. Let's start with the Photo Browser. When I click on it, a Media Browser window appears. It has three tabs.
Photos, Audio and Movies. You can actually send music, sound clips and very short movies in your messages, using the same techniques you're about to learn for photos. I will go back to the Photos button. You have three possible sources for your photos: Aperture, if you're using it, iPhoto and perhaps Photo Booth, which takes pictures right on the spot, using your computer's camera. It even allows you to apply crazy special effects. Note this disclosure triangle next to iPhoto. You can open and collapse it. You now have access to all of your iPhoto events and photos.
There is a slider at the bottom to enlarge or reduce the size of your thumbnails. If you've been good at naming your photos, entering descriptions or designing keywords, you can use the search box to find exactly what you're looking for and then drag it into your email message. It will be placed where you see that cursor on your screen. If you change your mind, click before or after the picture and delete it, just like you would anything else in the message. Go ahead and close the Media Browser. To add a photo that's not in your iPhoto Library, click back on Picture and then Picture from File.
Navigate to the picture file you want, and double-click on it, or click on it once and choose the Open button at the bottom of the window. Do be aware that some Internet providers will not allow messages larger than 2 MB in size. So if your picture is very large, you may need to create a smaller or low-resolution version of it to send through email. Also note that you can open up the Media Browser from right inside an email with this button appear in the toolbar of the email message. Now I will address my message. Now I'll send my message.
Sending pictures through Email has made it easy for families to keep current about their lives as well as speeding up business, so that you don't have to send assets through the Post Office anymore.
