There are two ways of doing this. Firstly you obviously need to open your hotmail account and open a new email, as well as this you'll need to open the picture or animation. Once this is done you can either simply copy and paste the image or just drag and drop the image from its folder into the new email message. However if this does not work due to the format of the animation or picture, you can try copying and pasting the image in to the new mail, where you will then have to edit it in the email as HTML not as text, and then link it to the URL in which you got it from.
Windows Live Hotmail, formerly known as MSN Hotmail and commonly referred to simply as Hotmail, is a free web-based email service operated by Microsoft as part of its Windows Live group. It was founded by Sabeer Bhatia and Jack Smith and launched in July 1996 as 'HoTMaiL'. It was the first web-based email service. Its original name and capitalization refers to HTML, the encoding language used by the World Wide Web. It was also one of the first free email providers. It was purchased from the original creators by an Estonian investor Steve Jurvetson, who continued developing it. Hotmail was acquired by Microsoft in 1997 for an estimated $400 million, and shortly after it was rebranded as 'MSN Hotmail'. The current version, "Windows Live Hotmail", was officially announced in 2005 and released worldwide in 2007.
Windows Live Hotmail features unlimited storage, security measures for which patents have been filed, Ajax technology, and integration with Windows Live Messenger, Hotmail Calendar, SkyDrive and Contacts. According to comScore (August 2010) Windows Live Hotmail is the world's largest web-based email service with nearly 364 million users. Second and third are Yahoo! Mail, 280 million and Gmail, 191 million. It is available in 36 different languages.
Why don't you read the f'ing question ahole? He's not asking how to paste a picture/image. He's having the same problem I am. When you just copy and past an animated gif. Into hotmail all you get is one frame of the animation. It doesn't move.
You have to edit it in hotmail as html not rich text etc. And link it to a url!
Dana Western Australia! Hope this helps!
Open your hotmail account and go to new or compose mail. Open the picture or animation you want to insert in the message. Just copy paste the image or just drag and drop the image in the new message box. If you want to send an attachment then simple go to attachment section and attach the required animation.
I hope this might help. Have fun :)
