Placing an image into an e-mail can help you share information with a friend or co-worker that is hard to put into words. The image you include could be something as simple as a .jpeg file, however you also can insert PDF files and other types of images.
Some e-mails have size limitations, therefore you typically cannot send a large image in an e-mail because the email server cannot handle it. For example, Gmail users cannot send messages that are larger than 25 MB.
