There are several ways of capturing your drawings and diagrams for insertion into an e-mail. If you are unsure how to do this, we have included some ideas below. If you need further assistance with this, we will be glad to help you.
Method 1 - Scanner
If you have access to a scanner, you can scan your drawings or diagrams and then send them as an e-mail. Your scanner software will include instructions on how to do this. Next, be sure to complete the e-mail details as shown above.
Method 2 - Paint program
Most computers have a drawing program installed, such as 'Microsoft Paint' (shown below), or if you have a word processor like 'Microsoft Word' that has drawing tools then that will also work.
Use the drawing tools provided by the program to sketch your diagram, then select 'Send' or 'Send to' from the 'file' menu. If given the choice, choose to send the picture as an attachment. This will create a new e-mail with your drawing attached. Next, be sure to complete the e-mail details as shown above.
