Has anyone else had this issue, maybe I'm doing something wrong.

 

Going from Aperture to email is something I do often. Usually I use the "share" menu button and select "email". I do this after selecting a series of images I want to insert into my email.

 

For whatever reason, the images are never inserted in order. They always come out all over the place and not in the sequence I selected in the Aperture browser. This is problematic when you want to include many pictures, re ordering them in the email is a pain.

 

The other thing I can do to preserve the order of selection, is drag and drop images into Mac Mail. BUT THEY GET INSERTED WITH NO LINE BREAKS using this method. So your email looks like jigsaw puzzles. Breaking apart all your pictures and adding line breaks is as much fun as getting athlete's foot.

 

Also, drag and dropping is weird when you want to resize, the resize button never seems to work or acts strangely.

 

THE OTHER THING, why is there no option in Mac Mail itself to resize individual pictures easily. You can resize all the images not individually. Why not have the option when you select a picture in your email, to size it small, medium, large -- leaving the others the same size.

 

If I'm missing something here, let me known -- maybe, I'm not doing somthing right.

 

Any help, appreciated.

    One for the Mail forum I would have thought.

    Did you ever get an answer or a fix for this problem?  It is rather annoying indeed!

    As a workaround, I tried this with iPhoto, using my usual Mail program on the iMac and the pictures are in the order that I wanted, separated by a blank space, and also include version names under each photo. If you still have iPhoto on your computer, try it and let me know if this helps you as much as it does me?

     

    Thanks!

    -- pictures when they are shared on Facebook or Flickr via Aperture don't lose their order, why so when they go to email?

     

    I was suprised to see this statement. A frequent complaint I've seen (and experienced) is Facebook images in the wrong order compared to what was shared.

    One could probably excuse issues with Facebook/Flickr since those I/F depend on third parties. But I don't see a reason why the within Apple piece (Aperture->Mail) couldn't be made to work. Must not be high enough on the list of priorities. Have you sent feedback to Apple? It's probably the only way a mere mortal can have a slight influence on what Apple does next.

    Honestly, and as much as I love Apple products, I have never, ever given feedback to Apple that actually resulted in anything happening to any potential bug or suggestion for doing something better. Hence, I find that feedback route to be grossly ineffective and time consuming. I wish that were not the case, but that has been my experience.

     

    Sending photos via email in Picasa works fine, iPhoto works fine, Aperture does not...plain and simple.

    Why is this marked 'solved'?  Nothing has been solved and that misleads the others who have this problem. Please correct this.

    It is the prerogative of the original poster to decide if an answer solved his or her problem; there is nothing, the person who answers to a post can do about the mark. And once a question has been marked as solved, this cannot be undone.

    Thanks leonieDF, you have help me before and I appreciate it! 

     

    Now, do you have the email problem that is discussed above?
