Via I have moved some jpg pictures from my Desktop to iCloud.

Then I created a new e-mail (using Mail or iCloud Mail) and dragged a picture from

Preview into the e-mail document.

I noticed, when this e-mail is received, it always contains the complete picture (= large e-mail file).

Is it possible to just "hotlink" to that picture which is stored in iCloud (and so get smaller e-mails)?


Many thanks.

iMac (27-inch Mid 2011), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
