When I receive emails from several people, the pictures only show up as attachments. I have to click on each individual attachment to view the picture. In one case, this started happening with my brother's emails when they bought a new computer that uses Windows 8 and Outlook for email. I can receive the exact same email from another party and all pictures show up without having them as attachments. I talked to my brother and he said he receives them that way (where you have to click on each attachmet) and, as a result, when he sends them, they are the same. I have Windows 7 and use Mozilla Fireox for emails. Is there a setting that is causing this on the sender's email program or is it something with my lapto? Any help is appreciated.

W7 here , I use windows live as a email server & the free Widows Essentials Mail program . when I drop & drag a pix from anywhere on my PC in my out going mail I get the attachment as well BUT when I drag & drop a email pix that is the body of another email sent me that pix is in the body of my email .
Never could figure out how to do this with a pix in a file on the PC . . What is Even weirder is I can have one pix in a email sent to me & then move that to my new email then drag & drop a pix off MY pc & it will appear in the email ??? . I some times will place a sent email pix in a new email then drag & drop more off the pC & then delete the 1st one just to get them in the body of the email weird Huh ! ?

Have a look at the view settings Bob, allow HTML will embed pictures, plain text will go as orphaned attachments. There is also a "view pictures inline" setting from memory

Also, the sender has to decide if they are "attaching" the images or putting them "inline". If they're clicking the little paperclip icon (or similar), they're attaching.
