 You are a freelance reporter working for Los Angeles Times. You have a lot of clients who send you photographs (more than 50 pictures) everyday. Every time you receive an email, your email program asks you whether the file has to be downloaded. You are tired of responding to the pop up. Silly, but really annoying. Is there an option in Outlook settings to automatically download pictures? The answer is “Yes”. In this column, you will learn to alter Outlook settings, so that you can automatically download the photos.

Change your Outlook Settings to download the pictures

The first step is to open Outlook.  After that, click “Tools” at the top of the menu. Then select “Trust Center”. Once that is done, click the box on the left of “Don’t download pictures automatically in HTML e-mail messages or RSS items” (this is to remove the check mark from the box). Then click “OK” to save your settings and close theTrustCenter window.

There is an option in Outlook settings to choose the pictures that you want to download.  You just need to click on the “Download pictures” bar, which is located at the top of a trusted email. Using these Outlook settings, you can view the omitted pictures.

Remember that, right clicking on a blocked image and selecting the “Add sender to safe list” option will result in the automatic download of all images from the email address in the future.

Changing the Outlook settings, did the trick

As the saying goes “Where there is a will, there is way”. No need to bother about the constant download pop ups. Now all the pictures will be automatically downloaded, coz you made the necessary changes in your Outlook settings.
