You have two options for inserting a JPEG image into a Yahoo email message. If the image resides on your computer, the most convenient option is to include the photo as an email attachment. If you've found a picture online, you can employ the copy and paste method to seamlessly integrate the photo into the body of the email. Yahoo allows a total message size of 25MB, including any attachments.
