You could email a plain-text newsletter containing links to
online pictures.  This avoids the problem of emailing very
large files and it keeps the people who prefer to receive
newsletters as email happy.

Then you could also put the HTML version (with pictures in
their proper places) on the Web.  This keeps the people who
prefer to read newsletters on the Web happy.

So - hopefully - everyone's happy.

I do this with newsletters for my small business.  I do not
find creating the two versions to be unduly burdensome.
