Problem sending picture

I Needed to send another forum member a photograph ( Never mind what of ) and here is a sample of what appeared,
<img src="data:;base64,R0lGODlhIANWAvcAAHBWSf/+pk9AM//+2a+ZjP//6//+t//+lP/+yXF7iOCZa4qotzMuLoCWqfp3bf/bhOCpcSIbHnOJmtfazI60z6LQ4//KdkU1MP+UjGdnaEVBQf+Tc3d2eP+6dv/sk//MhE1XaP7Y0f/blslyU9S7qXx1aIBkVf+8hFVVVU5ldP/sp56JeY2Hd/+0rnprZImGiY14aY17d3CRqayqmMD1+KN6VFpHQZ2Xh//qhZ6Mh8WYZL+smKF7iP+sdNjLkZmZmXaFjb27p5FpUoaNlk80Q/zHg7WHV7SMY9+VjGtkVwwHDMN4bP/cp//tyv/tt5N1U7bIsVlSRszNusvIqWN0e7q3mtvYu//NljEjIqarqf/cu5Spl2Rrd4WWm9eqhNbo1P+pm/nIlseaeC9BTv/
Problem is if someone sees this in a email they will think it is a virus which it is not so I am a bit worried now, why would a photograph just display as the above as other photos sent were ok, I hope.
Serious answers please as I am a bit worried about this.

Re: Problem sending picture

I've seen this before. It's somehow turned itself into a text string and hasn't completed as the img tag hasn't been terminated.
Presumably you turned the photo into a .JPG, if it wasn't already, and reduced it's size to a manageable transmit size?
Some cameras produce photos that are multi Mb and can be an issue.
Failing that use Photobucket or Dropbox or similar and just send the links.
Let's be careful out there !

Thanks for that, it was a gif file which I turned into a jpeg file, odd as another 3 photos went across ok.
I had included a link to these photos in Picasa but the link did not work, seems others have had the same problem since Google took over Picasa

Treat the pictures like your flies, zip 'em up for safe keeping... Grin
