Drag and Drop Images Into Gmail: Check.

And here I speak – well – the Google again … The development team Gmail announced yesterday a new feature simply sensational, but that was a tremendous lack service: drag and drop pictures into the messages.

From now on, you will be able to include any image from your computer into the body of an e-mail fairly easily and quickly. The upload is immediate, and you see time as the message is getting.

In the test I did, I wrote a short message. Then I clicked on an image that was in the Pictures folder on my Windows 7 and dragged into the body of the message.

As we can see in the screenshot above, a small version of the image appears to “Copy” next to it. Easy even. And after the image is inserted, you have the following message all ready to be sent:

There are still options to keep the original image size or leave it small, medium or large. Prior to this implementation, it was possible to include images in the email body, since using a Gmail Labs feature specifically with it. Fortunately, I can now retire the Inserting Images.

It is worth remembering that no matter the location where the image is “loose” within the body of the message. She will always enter the exact point where you stop writing (ie where the text cursor is blinking).

Update at 15:30 | functionality for now only works in Chrome, but should reach other browsers soon. Words Google.
