Paste to emails

I have a very old MacBook where it can not share photos with newer devices. Until recently copy and paste to mail worked but now a copy from photos to mail fails. Any ideas? I have cleared out all emails after copying to the photos to iPad so I am lost for ideas.

Re: Paste to emails

What is the OS version and can you explain where the issue with pasting is occurring, i.e. in mail app or webmail?

Re: Paste to emails

It is a very old MacBook 10.7.5 it is the mail app that now stops pasting having managed to copy paste dozens of old photos before. All old emails cleared out of all devices after being to copied to new iPad mini.

Re: Paste to emails

Can you paste the image into other applications, for example Notes?

When composing an email in Mail is Make Plain text or Make Rich Text shown under Format menu option? If the latter select it and try pasting the image.

Re: Paste to emails

Remember the OS is very out of date and most apps no longer compatible with those on newer devices. What I did not understand is why one day cut/paste worked and now it does not, nothing on the MacBook has changed as updates have not been available for years. Think I may try to write a DVD and get paper copies as backup once photo shops can reopen.

Re: Paste to emails

What about Pages, I believe that was available for the OS version?

Have you considered using iCloud to store the images?

Re: Paste to emails

Can not get to iCloud as MacBook is too old. Pages rejected the paste.

Re: Paste to emails

Wonder if there is difference in the image file format between those that previously pasted and those that do not.

Guess the easier solution is that you have already proposed of copying image files to other medium.
