How to Insert Or Add Images to Gmail Messages

Update: By default, Gmail is now providing the option to insert images in your Compose toolbar hence no need to change any settings. Furthermore, Labs option is now removed from setting page.

Gmail is the most popular mail service used by millions of people every day. However, still there are many features, which are not available in Gmail, although we can still enable missing feature using beta Lab. As you might be knowing that Gmail does not have any option of embedding or adding images to Gmail messages.

To add this option to your compose toolbar of Gmail, you need to enable “Inserting Images” feature from Gmail Lab.

Follow the below procedure:
1.) Open Gmail and go to Setting.

2.) Click on Lab Tab.

3.) Now Scroll Down and find Inserting Image Lab feature.

4.)Now, Click on Enable option and scroll Down and Click on Save Setting and activate the feature.

Now, you will be able to see the image icon on compose toolbar of Gmail, click on the image icon and insert image to the message.
