How can I attach a photo as a separate file to an email? (I have tried several of the tricks suggested here and they don't work for me)

I cannot work out how to attach a photo as an attachment to an email.  I have tried several times today using different methods (ie, changing the email to plain text, dragging the photo from Iphoto over the mail icon, emailing directly from Iphoto), but none of them work.  Everything seems to just produce an email with an embedded photo.  Any ideas?

Is this the first time your friend receives e-mail from a Mac user?
It is certainly the first time I have sent her emails from a Mac.  Not sure if she has ever received messages from another Mac user before.
You've sent her e-mails with pictures before, but only now you're having a problem
Yes, that's correct.
Mail.app offers two settings you can try to manipulate: Edit > Attachments > Always send Windows-friendly attachments, and, Always insert attachments at end of message
I had already tried that and it didn't work.
e-mail client your friend is using
I will find out on Monday when she goes back to work, but I wanted to look at solving the problem firstly from my end.
very likely you're dealing with a problem others have dealt with
Yes, very likely - I searched the site before I posted my own question, and there were quite a number of posts on the same issue.
Again, thanks everyone for your help.  Hopefully we can find a solution.  I am not making you all grope in the dark just to annoy you!!!  I'm just a new Mac user trying to work something out.  I am sorry if it seemed otherwise.
