Hi Sallie,

Oops! A basic misunderstanding. There are no images inside the SLA file, 
only references to files on your system.

If you want to share the document with its images, use File > Collect 
for Output, which asks for the name of a _directory_ (and you can create 
a new one), into which the SLA file and all its images will go.

You would then need to send this directory and its contents to your 
recipient. If you're using Linux you can use tar to do this, but I have 
a hunch that this may be beyond your knowledge, or that you're not using 

Otherwise, you'll need to send all those files inside that directory in 
your email.
