Right click on the photo in the email and select Display as Attachment from the contextual menu. How it ends up is dependent on the email client. You may have it show up as an attachmen before sending and the receiving end may be set to display it in the body.
In either case be sure to set Mail to send Windows Friendly Attachments:
If you compress/zip the file it before adding to the email it will definitely be added as an attachment. But that requires an couple of additonal steps and to assure the zipped file will be Windows friendly you would need to use the free YemuZip application.

Here's the thing: what and how things get displayed on the receiver's end is entirely a matter for the settings on their machine. You have no control over that. The only thing you can do is send plain text emails (that's a setting in your Mail client).
