Red face trouble opening photo's in email

Hi guys...I've been fortunate enough to have had you help me a few times in the past and now I have a new problem. At one time I had Kodak software for my photo's, somehow I screwed that up and had to get rid of it. Since then I tried a few software photo programs and really didn't care for them. I have Irfanview but it's not really what I want either. Today someone recommended a free one from google..Picasa. I downloaded it and it appears to be what I'm looking for,however, i sent a photo to me to make sure it works and I get a warning asking me if I want to open it ( my security- which I will often get with other things )..I said yes but it won't open. it says i don't have a program associated with it to open....This happens to me every now and then with some emails. I would like to keep this program but I'm not too swift with figuring out what i need to do to get it to work for me....I would once again like to bow down to my superiors and ask for your help...
Oh yes...I have a HP Pavilion a200n pc...My email program is outlook express....I tried to fix this in the " tools " of outlook with no luck..I could however save this from outlook to my desk top then it would open with windows picture and fax viewer...
Thanks again
Bubbles

Unless someone beats me to it:

Unless I'm mistaken, it sounds like the association for that image is (may be) messed up.

What extension are you sending? Or, I should change this to, what type of image are you sending? Can you view the image before you send it out?

I did a "test" on my own machine. I can view a .jpg/.jpeg just fine, but, once I attach it within outlook express, the jpeg opens in notepad.

Now, do the following:

Create a new email. Attach your image. DON'T SEND! Now, double click the attachment! Does the image show? If not, what does?

If nothing is shown, do the following:

Bring up explorer. I.E. Start, Run, explorer (enter), click on TOOLS, then Folder options (pull down menu).

Next click on the "File Types" tab.

For my example, I'll work with jpg.

Now, within the box "Registered File Types", scroll down to the extension you are working with.

For me it is "JPG Graphics Interchange Formate Image". Highlight this, by selecting it.

Now, click Change. You should/may have a popup "Windows can not open this file".

Click the radial button: "Select the Program from a list"

Next, select: Windows Picture and Fax Viewer (or your favorite picture viewer).

Click, OK, then Close.

Now, go back to that attachment, and try double clicking on it.

Does it work?

Now, send it to your self. Does it work?

Yeah. It took me awhile to type that in, and ALT + TAB to the various screens. I PREFER to figure it out on my own, instead of using copernic or google.

There is also a quicker way using the registry, but I won't go there.

Talking Re: trouble opening photo's in email

Good morning to my helpers! ...I had printed off the newest offer of help from ' thefool" and had printed off another help sheet previously from the Picasa site...well this a.m., I tried the shorter one first [ Picasa ] and it worked!..something to do with disabling a current file association with Picasa ? sorry guys..am not too swift with these things...in any case it worked! But, I have saved and printed your suggestions in case this happens to me again. I want to thank you "Jujet" for trying to fiqure this out for me, I really appreciate your knowledge and help, and thanks also "Thefool" for jumping in to offer your help....This site is terrific! I've had it saved to my desktop and refer to it all the time...Have a great day both of you..
