Most of us use our smartphones these days to capture plenty of images on the move, as carrying around a DSLR is just not as convenient. There is also the option of a Micro Four Thirds camera or other system cameras too, but those too, require you to tote around another device which might end up as inconvenient. Thankfully, the smartphones of today do come with far better photo-taking ability than before, and are ideal for most ordinary shots. For those who love snapping photos with their smartphones, you will be pleased that Google wants to help save your time by letting you insert your Auto Backup photos from your smartphone into Gmail messages on the web, thanks to the new Insert Photo button.
Whenever you click on the button, you will be able to access all of the photos in an instant, where they have been backed up from your mobile devices, beginning with the most recent content. Should you opt to upload and organize your photos into albums on Google Photos, you will also be able to share the whole album without any worries. Apart from that, you are also able to resize images as you compose messages simply by dragging on any corner to ensure that your snapshot is picture perfect.
Have you already made use of these new features in Gmail on the web? It is supposed to have rolled out today, and if you have not given it a go, do remember to turn on Auto Backup, where you can then include photos easily from your latest adventures in emails to family and friends. [Press Release]
