Picture with your Contacts

Is it possible to add pictures to a contact. When I use Windows Explorer to 
view a contact I can see the
picture that I associated with that contact but when I'm in Windows Live 
Mail I can't. If it makes a difference
I also use Windows 7.

Hello Don,

WLM's contacts are stored in a database and not viewable in Windows Explorer(only in WLM and WLMsgr).
The contacts one sees in Windows 7 should be the contacts migrated(for backward compatibility) from an earlier o/s(upgrade from 
Vista) or copied or imported to that Contact folder.

The current version of WLM and afiak WLMsgr does not have an option to add a contact picture.

In fact, I have better success to view their Live ID display picture in the web UI(people.live.com or viewing my network on my Live 
ID profile) than either WLM or WLMsgr regardless of my Live ID contacts online status(e.g.available)

Are you saying the newer version is LESS capable than the previous one? 
Surely, since each contact has a HUGE icon where a picture normally would 
be, there are plans afoot to add pictures to the contact?

Mine aren't so HUGE. Tools | Options | Layout. You can reduce the HUGEness
of your icons.  ;)

The last WLM version, released in Dec 2007, did not have picture-add capability either.

Embedded pictures
Hello! I noticed that the when we set the picture property of a button or another control as embedded, it takes a lot of place.

Problem saving contacts
Hello all, We have a user running Outlook 2000 (on Win XP SP2) who is having problems saving forwarded contacts. The contact shows up within the email with a .msg extension (although it has a 'contact' icon). It's not a .vcf extension. Anyway, when she opens the contact and saves it, there are no errors or messages given, but it does not appear in her list of contacts anywhere. On the other hand, if she creates a contact and tries to save it, there are no problems, the contact saves correctly and is listed. But she experiences the same problem while using Outlook 2000 through our ...

attaching pictures as an icon
Hi I am trying to save memory in an excel report and I wish to include a picture in this report as an icon that shows the picture when selected. If you're going to try to save memory in the workbook, then it sounds like the big picture will be outside excel (a common LAN folder???). If yes, then maybe you could create thumbnails of each of your pictures (using ????) and then add a hyperlink to each thumbnail. The hyperlink would use whatever program is associated with the extension to open the big picture--outside of excel completely. (I don't know how you'd include the big p...
