I edit a newsletter for a small non-profit. It is 8 pages. I send it to the printer as a pdf and to those that get it by e-mail as a pdf. I'd like to send it to the later as html because the size is so much smaller when I use pictures. I tried a free downloadable program but was not happy with it. Any ideas?
thanks!

i don't think your pics get saved in side of the html file though when you do it that way they just are saved on your pc

@rick am i right in saying that they don't save when exported in html format or is that only for normal html coding? i have never made a html with word only notepad and a bit of dreamweaver

I'm using word 2002. though sometimes I switch to open office. hmmm, I send out the newsletter using the e-mail program that comes with the website (www.auburnsos.com) I run hosted by Tripod.
Jack - you think there is no way to save the pics in the html version?

@Jack,

Believe it or not, you can encode HTML with pictures and sound in OLD Outlook Express 6.4.

Can't do it in Outlook without using "tricks" which are a bit awkward.

well you see with normal html coding you say where the pics are saved at then it just finds them and the actual file is only code and is then it's translated into what you see in your browser.

edit: @rick wow i guess i've never really tried it so i didn't really think is was possible but then again i have never used outlook either lol

Catherin,
I went to your site and looked at your posted news letters.
A very, very worthy cause.
Let me sleep on it and maybe I can give you some ideas.
I marked the topic in my favorites and am sure other members will jump-in also for such a good endeavor.

Kindest Regards,
Rick P. ♥ :)

@Jack,

That is old Outlook Express (NOT) Outlook.

Open a new E-Mail - Menu Item View (Source Edit) There will be (3) tabs at the bottom.
You will use img source tags a lot plus play with the location using all HTML.
E-mail will be sent encoded in sections.
Draw back is now folks set-up their E-mail not to except pictures and stuff due to security issues.
Kindest Regards,
Rick P. ♥ :)
