    Now you have to upload the images from your PC  to anyone of the free image hosting sites.There are many available in net,try a Google check: .Here I am using Photobucket.After uploading your image,just copy it.For that highlight the image with mouse , right click & select copy( Ctrl+C)


    If your image is larger than some 640x640 pixels, consider shrinking it to more handy proportions before you put it online.
    To trim images to be lean and fit for emails use  ResizR. -ResizR is a  free and very useful little utility. ResizR allows you to resize an image from your local computer or the web.Click Browse and select the desired image. Use the slider or the entry field to choose the desired width. Use a width between 300 and 640 pixels.Try 340 pixels first.  Click ResizR.
    Drag and drop the resulting image to your Desktop. Another free utility is VSO Image Resizer.Alternatively you can  use tools  like  Image Resizer PowerToy | IrfanView
