Insert Images Directly Into Your Gmail Messages

gmail_adds_inline_imagesWell, it’s about time. You no longer have to use workarounds to put images into your messages or attach images when you really want to inline them. Just turn on “Inserting images” from the Labs tab under Settings in while in Gmail inbox, and you’ll see a new toolbar icon like this:

gmail-insert-images
And then…add-photos-to-a-gmail-message
Make sure you’re in rich formatting mode, or it won’t show up. Click the little image icon, and you can insert images in two ways: by uploading image files from your computer or providing image URLs.

Keep in mind that Gmail doesn’t show URL-based images in messages by default to protect you from spammers, so if you’re sending mail to other Gmail users, they’ll still have to click Display images below or “Always display images from …” to see images you embed.

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU. Yahoo has had this ability (I believe) for some time and I was wondering when it would come to Gmail!
