A long awaited but well needed addition to Gmail is the ability to insert inline images into your message. For those of you who use Gmail everyday, you sometimes forget that the Gmail Labs are always working on these new features to improve your experience.
To make this feature work you need to follow these steps: Go to the little lab bottle on the top right of the screen. Make sure you have rich formatting turned on. After you go into the labs, find the Inserting Images feature and click Enable. Then hit Save Changes on the bottom. Once you do this, you will notice an image icon placed between the emoticon and link icons. Click it and you can upload and see the images you want to attach in the body of your actual message.
Like everything else gmail seems to give us, this feature is simple to use once you enable it. Maybe one day they will actually come out of beta. What’s it been….like only 5 years already!
