Mailing multiple images

Top  Previous  Next

 

Mailing multiple images MAPI or the internal mail client works the same. You select the thumbnails of the images to send and then select Transfer -> Mail selected imagesfrom the main tool bar. You can also press [F4] to email selected images.

 

Now the e-mail dialog is opened where you can set the size the photos should have and also if a frame should be applied.

First select the size. There are some predefined:

 

Keep Original Image

Select this option if you want to send out the full original image.

 

Keep Original Dimensions

Select this option if you want to send out the image while maintaining the original size (w x h) but now you can specify that a frame and/or caption titles should be added.

 

Make small (800)

Select this option if you want the mailed image to be 800 pixels of size. This size will be applied to the longest size of the image: width for landscape and height for portrait images. A size of 800 pixels is enough for average use and results in relatively small sized images.

 

Make very small (480)

Select this option if you want the mailed image to be 480 pixels of size. This size will be applied to the longest size of the image: width for landscape and height for portrait images. A size of 480 pixels is relatively small but still gives a good impression of the image.

 

User defined

Select this option if you want to define a different size. Any possible size can be set here.

After setting the size you can select if a frame should be applied to the downsized images. This option does not apply when you chose to send out the original. For other sizes, the original will remain untouched, meaning the frame will be applied to the downsized image and not the original! By selecting the option “Apply a frame” a new tab sheet becomes available. By activating this tab sheet you will be presented with the default frame design, which can be customized. For a description of how to define a frame, read the section “Framing images” in chapter “Image Viewer”.

If you customize the frame design, it will be remembered for future use..

 

“Each image as a separate mail message”. Select this option if you dont want to send out all selected images in a single mail message, but rather want to send a single mail message for each image.

 

“Convert images to sRGB color profile if needed”. This option is only available if you have enable color management features in the options dialog (Tools -> Options). It will make sure that images are converted to sRGB if the color space for any of the selected images is stored with a different color space.

 

Use the field "Renaming Rule" if you want to use a specific name before sending them out. Use the drop down button to use earlier rules or click the button behind this field to construct a new naming rule.

 

Then select your “Transfer method”. By default the transfer method is defined to your preference as set in the Options dialog. Here you can change it for this session only. Options are:

 

MAPI Mail Client

Use this method to send your images using your favorite installed e-mail application like Outlook™, Thunderbird™, etc

 

Internal Mail Client

Use this method to transfer your prepared images using the integrated e-mail client.

 

FTP Upload

Use this method to transfer your prepared images to a web server.

 

 

The next option allows you to select a "version place holder" that should be sent out. by default IDimager will send out the selected image. if the selected image is part of a version set then IDimager will send out the e-mail version (if defined; if no e-mail version is specified, then the selected image will be sent). Here you can select a different version place holder that should be used for mailing.

 

The last option "Keep metadata in the downsized copies" can be used to specify if the Exif/IPTC/XMP of the original image should also be stored in the mailed copy.

 

Click button “OK” to send out the e-mail message.
