I suspect the problem is on their end. What kind of file is it .png? Windows doesn't open .png natively. If it is a .png export it as a .jpg and try again.
It could alos be a security setting on their end if they are using Outlook. Outlook likes to block photos by default

Mail.app by default displays images inline, and most email clients won’t recognize them as attachments. If you right click (or ctrl click with a one button mouse) on the image you can select to view the image as icon, which makes it behave like a normal attachment. To make this the default behavior you’ll need to use the Terminal to set the preference. Terminal is in Applications>Utilities. Open Terminal and type:
defaults write com.apple.mail DisableInlineAttachmentViewing -bool yes
That will make every attachment you send act like an attachment instead of a pretty unusable decoration.
If you decide this isn’t what you’re looking for, to restore inline attachment viewing type:
defaults write com.apple.mail DisableInlineAttachmentViewing -bool false
Restart Mail and you’re back to normal.
One more thing, if you’re having the issue that Mail is resizing your image, after attaching a file, make sure that you select “Actual Size” from the “Image Size” pulldown in the lower right corner of your message window.

Is that the same as selecting "view as icon" from rt clk drop menu on the email itself?
If so it made no difference to the recipient??
Still confused ;-) Sorry - just re-read your last. I have tried that unsucessfully.
Thank you for help so far

Send the email as plain text - Mail/Preferences/Composing - the box at the top
Remember to include the file suffix (.jpg) on the photo file, and to send them as 'Windows friendly attachments'.
