You didn't realize it but you were using HTML with OE on your outdated Windows PC in order to make this work. It is impossible to make an image a hyperlink without composing in HTML. The image must be embedded in the message body for this to work and although image/photo and single page PDF attachments appear inline or viewed in place within the body of the message by default with the Mail.app for received and sent messages, this is not the same thing as embedded which requires HTML.
RTF with Tiger Mail is really HTML but Mail does not include an HTML composer/editor. In order to turn RTF into HTML requires selecting a font via the font panel when composing a message or if an included signature was composed in RTF.
You can experiment with using an HTML composer/editor of choice (the Text Edit application can be used for this purpose) turning an image into a hyperlink. Save the completed document and open the saved document with Safari making sure the hyperlink is working properly.
At the Safari menu bar, go to File and select Mail Contents of This Page. With RTF selected for message composition with Mail, the saved HTML document that is rendered with Safari will be copied to a new Mail.app which will be sent in its entirety.
