If you have an image that you’ve created in the Adobe InDesign application that you want to send as an e-mail, you must export the file as a JPEG image file onto your computer. When exporting your image, you can also make sure the size of the image isn’t too large so that you file can easily be uploaded. You can then embed the JPEG images using your e-mail account so that the image is uploaded into the message as HTML.
