Email is a means of communicating information to other people, and, as the old saying
goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. Using Outlook 2013, you can communicate
visual information in the following ways:
Share photographs with other people by attaching the photos to messages or
embedding them in messages.
Share information from websites, documents, and other visual presentations by
capturing images of your screen directly from Outlook and then inserting those
images in your message.
Explain complicated processes and other business information by creating SmartArt
graphics within messages or by embedding SmartArt graphics that you create in
other Office 2013 programs.
Communicate statistical information by creating a chart within a message.
Decorate message content by inserting clip art images.
You can insert all these types of images from the Illustrations group on the Insert tab
into the content pane of an email message, calendar item, or task, or into the notes pane
of a contact record.
