Provide an option to attach files or photos inline OR as attachments. One size doesn't fit all.
Inline photos may be preferred in some cases, but they are often far less convenient, especially if the recipient wants to use them as documentation in another application.

I wonder if the Outlook devs send their photos as inline rather than attachments. Inline might be OK if you just want to view photos, but most people want to save/download. Please re-introduce this.
Robert Seed commented
yes this needs to happen!
I flagged this as an issue to the Microsoft Outlook team, the issue being that I'm having to use a different email app to send attachments as actual attachments because Outlook now adds attachments inline in the body of emails. The response I got was that I could vote for this feature, so here I am voting for a feature to be re-introduced to the app...actually I'm voting for a bug to be fixed, whereby attachments used to be added as actual attachments as opposed to being included inline. Goodness knows why I'm having to vote to get bugs fixed.
Why the ****?? Who needs embedded images?? I want to send my photos / images as attachments. Sometimes embedded images are shown in E-Mail body on my phone but images never arrive @ recipient. This feature was avaliable previously. Turn it back on. Now!!!

I want to be able to choose how to attach a file. I don't always want images inserted into the body of an email.

Make file options available on inbox tool bar of 1st page, a.k.a. read/unread-move, &/or delete.

Can't believe Outlook, of all things, doesn't even give an option to just attach photos. I thought this app was directed at business users? This needs to be a feature, ASAP.
