I've attempted to look for instructions on the Internet, but when I follow them, the image doesn't appear (the copy & paste method) in the email when received, or appears as a line of text (upload image to photobucket and copy the location to the email message). I use mostly Yahoo for my email, if that matters. Any suggestions?

Need to create a HTML email.
These, if you must create them, actually load the pictures/images off a server, and are not part of the email itself.

Bear in mind these things are considered a pain in the proverbial, because they effectively make the email 20 times bigger than it would be if you'd just pasted some text into an email program and clicked Send.

This may be of interest:

I worked out something on my own - I signed up for a gmail account which allows images to be copied and pasted into the body of the message. Then I send it to my "regular" email account, then forward it to whom I want from there. Thanks for your input, though.
