Google announced today a new experimental feature called “Inserting Images” that allows you to easily insert images through two modes: uploading image files from your computer or providing the URL of existing images on the web.

To activate the novelty, simply access the «Labs» tab on the Gmail settings page and activate the respective functionality. By default, even if you’re sending a message to another Gmail user, they’ll have to click on the “display images” option to view it.
