Dragging images to Mac Outlook, recipient find images washed out

Recommended Posts

When placing an image into an email in Mac Outlook, the recipients receive a washed out version. I've noticed this a few times but haven't done enough to completely pinpoint the exact scenario - I think it's gif format though may happen with png too.

Typically I drag the file icon from the image view window to the email window to place and attach it.

Did you manage to find a resolution or workaround to this?  I have the same problem in the same scenario: drag an image (typically a screen grab) from Skitch into an Outlook email on Mac.  I've definitely seen this on Outlook 2015/16 (the new version) and possibly on 2011.  Emails are obv HTML.

I'm experiencing the same. Completely washed out when delivered on PC. Mac looks fine!


Fixed for me by changing from '.PNG' to 'Skitch .PNG' or JPEG.
