Your e-mail program is useful for more than just sending letters and text files. If you have interesting photos to share, most e-mail programs let you send as many as you want to friends and family. If you've received an e-mail that contains a picture you want to keep, consider saving it to your computer. On a Windows 7 computer, you can send e-mailed photos to your Pictures folder, where you're able to organise them for later viewing.
