It looks to me like you can't in gmail, if you could it would be in the rich formatting toolbar and would be insert an image. THere is an entry in their help here https://support.google.com/mail/ however it doesn't appear to offer help like you want. Um if you mean make the images show up in gmail, (they don't by default) you can't make someone elses gmail show the images you sent, unless you send the images as an attachment, but then it won't be in the body of the email.

Google's help files state this:

Google Mail doesn't currently offer the ability to attach images inline, because we don't support HTML formatting.

Even when you use the full formatting options, you don't have any HTML options or anything like that, so you can only send mail in plain text, but you can receive messages with inline images.

Here's a way, which I haven't tried myself, but probably works if they say so:

First, get and install Flock. It's free. It's not version 1.0 yet, it has many bugs, but it is usable.
Second, set up a Flickr account. It's free. Post your image on Flickr, and enable it for public viewing.

Third, open a web browser window and go to your Gmail account. Click "Compose Mail" to start a new message. Type a few words on a few lines to start with.

Fourth, bring up Flock and click the feather-pen icon, as if you're entering a web log entry. If you don't have any weblog system set up yet, don't worry, you don't need one for this (click "cancel" if a dialog box asks you to log in to one). click the "topbar" icon, and choose "Flickr topbar". Enter your username in there, so it finds your image.

Now drag and drop that image into the body of your Flock web log entry area.

Lastly, select that image in the flock web log entry area, and drag-n-drop it into your Gmail window's message body! The image magically appears there!

Fast and easy, isn't it? :)

Actually drag and drop, and copy, pasting of images does make it appear in the compose window, but when you send that mail to someone they'll not be able to view the image. Only you can view the image, you can store in the drafts and view it later, but the image cant be seen by the receiver.

it can be done as what D.BOY wants it. :) i've done it several times successfully. :P

 

first thing to do is make your image available online. upload it somewhere, like http://www.imageshack.us/ for example. if you uploaded it in imageshack, get the direct link of the image and paste it on your browser.

 

here is a sample image i uploaded so you can test it yourself in the next steps: http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/404.png

 

once its loaded in your browser, drag your mouse across the image so the whole image gets selected or highlighted (it would turn dark to indicate that it is successfully highlighted/selected). don't miss that part.

 

then while it is selected/highlighted, right-click your mouse over it, then from the menu which appears, choose COPY.

 

go to your GMAIL account, then COMPOSE MAIL. use RICH FORMATTING instead of PLAIN TEXT. then press CTRL-V to paste the copied image in your message body. the image will then show and appear embedded. fill out the recipients of your email, then send away!

 

of course, your recipients should be online to be able to view the image (in GMAIL, they should choose to DISPLAY IMAGES BELOW when they receive your email with embedded image).

 

if you doubt it, test it first. :P if you cant replicate what i've done PM me with your GMAIL address, and i'll send you an embedded image as proof myself :P

 

post your results below. :P btw, it will not appear as an attachment as it will directly access the online image from where you uploaded it when recipient views your email with embedded image.

To create a gmail email with embedded images you need to copy and paste them from another browser window, but to get them to appear in another browser window does not mean you have to upload them to the web. You can create and html file on you local hard drive and open that in your browser instead. I have create a simply batch file to automate this.###Create Batch file (do once only)1. Open notepadto. Paste in the followingecho ^<html^> > album.htmlecho ^<head^>^<title^>GMail album^</title^>^</head^> >> album.htmlecho ^<body^> >> album.htmlecho ^<br^>^<br^>^<br^>^<br^> >> album.htmlfor %%I in (*.jpg *.jpeg) do echo ^<img src="%%I"^>^<br^>^<br^>^<br^>^<br^> >> album.htmlecho ^</body^> >> album.htmlecho ^</html^> >> album.html3. Save it as see:windowscreate-jpeg-album.bat### Preparing Images (repeat for each different email)1. Resize/copy all email images into an empty folder.to. Open command prompt window in empty folder.3. Type create-jpeg-album at prompt and hit enter.A file called album.html should appear in this folder### Creating the email (repeat for each email)1. Compose a new rich text gmail email.to. From windows explorer double click on album.html to open it in a new browser window.3. Use the menu Edit/Select All or Ctrl-A to select the entire contents of album.html.4. Use the menu Edit/Copy or Ctrl-C to copy the contents to the clipboard.5. Click in the body of the new gmail email and use the menu Edit/Paste or Ctrl-V to paste the contents into the body of the new email.Hope this helpsJim-Jim Fricker

@serverph

 

Thanks for the solution you gave. It works perfectly.

 

But i thought i will share what i do. For all the people here... Yes guys. It can be done.

In my way ...i would say..very easily.

 

This is what i do when i need to embed an image in my mail. I use Blogger

 

Step by Step

Many must be aware that you can embed images in your blogs. So...just use that feature to send mail So..simple.

 

1. Go to your blog --> Settings tab

2. Under settings tab goto --> Email tab

3. There will be "BlogSend Address" and in that text box enter your email Address.

4. save changes and come out of it.

 

Mailing procedure

1. Draft the mail that you have to send as a post in your blog. attach images or do whatever you want.

2. Publish the post once you have finished it.

3. This will be sent as mail to the inbox of the mail ID supplied by you...

4. You can use this mail...the image will e embedded in that.

 

And i guess the blog post will be a waste...so you can go ahead and delete that post of yours...

So simple... isn't it??

it is good to note that even an old tip like this still is found useful even after more than a year since i posted it, and moreso by non-Xisto members to boot (via Trap FeedBacker). :) feedback like these (which spans more than one-and-a-half months from today, after being inactive for more than a year) for an old gmail trick makes me smile. :D surely made my day, so welcome all. :D

All you have to do is to both attach the image to the mail AND copy - paste it in the message's body. This way it displays in the browser, when the recipient vies the mail.
