O.P. how to attach a screenshot?
How can I attach a screenshot while IM'ing?
when I paste it, it shows up on the right of the conversation, but can't figure out how to include/send it.

Turn off photo sharing. You'll be able to send it as a file. WLM will only send a reduced resolution shared photo otherwise ;)

Spunky...

thanks.
How do I turn off photo sharing?  Searched for it, couldn't find.

Thanks

Right, just looked into it and it seems there is no option. However, Messenger Plus! can override the behaviour through the registry.



If you're comfortable editing the registry:

Messenger Plus! Live (Version > 4.83)
HKCU\Software\Patchou\Messenger Plus! Live\your@email.com\Preferences

Messenger Plus!(Version 5.x)
HKCU\Software\Yuna Software\Messenger Plus!\Windows Live Messenger\your@email.com\Preferences

Create a new DWORD called OverrideImgTransfer and set the value to 1



If you're not comfortable editing the registry, I can create a .reg file for you to double-click, however I'll need to know whether you are using version 4 of Plus! or version 5 and the e-mail address you use to sign-in.

Never post your e-mail in public, you can send me a private message. The only reason I need it is because it is part of the registry path and I cannot create the file without it

The only other option I know of really is to save the screenshot into an image editor such as paint and then send the image file. From the research I did just on this forum, it appears that Photo Sharing tries to automatically intercept pasted image data, but not necessarily file transfers

Thanks, I thought I put that in. I was being distracted by children. Children as far as the eye can see... :p
