Yes, that's the process I described above.

It can give you the pictures and the words, but as separate files without the formatting.

A simple metaphor - you sent me a cake, I got a box of ingredients and no recipe.

Some Apple used do send me images as attachments which is fine. Presumably the Apple default is to embed?

I have just sent a couple of test messages to Ian P

When composing on the iPad, I inserted a photo ... and at that time was offered a choice of small, medium, large, or original file sizes.

It seems that some of your contributors may not be paying sufficient attention.

When you get my reply you will see I actually received a 4 megapixel image, MS utlook offers me various save formate, JPG, TIFF, PNG, GIF and BMP.

I would say that only the 'large'; option will give me an image I can use.

It comes with no name or any metadata and no filename.

I'd suggest Mac users put their photos (with meaningful filenames such as photo1, photo 2 etc.)in a zip folder and email me that or send them via wetransfer.

(Also two heartfelt pleas to anyone sending photos: Don't edit numbers or letters into your photos and please supply a list of captions with your article NOT as the filenames!)

Then your system and/or mine must have “added something“

The original file is not that big.

I have eMailed you the metadata

Happy to exchange some test eMails with you, if you think it might hep.

We need, for the common good, to understand what’s going on.
