Quick tip for those of you who back your photos up to Google+ — you can now attach photos in your email straight from your account using the handy new “Insert Photo” button Google’s added to Gmail. Simply hit the button, select from one of the photos in your Google+ account, and voila: it pops into your compose window like magic.
It’s not a huge feature, but it’s convenient for folks who want to email pictures taken with their phone but don’t like doing so from the mobile apps. It’ll also give you some quick resizing features before licking the envelope and mailing it off. Finally, you can now email full albums if you so choose.
The feature won’t be super useful for those of you who don’t have auto backup enabled in your Google+ app on Android, so be sure to do that if you don’t mind each and every one of your pics being stored to Google’s servers as soon as they’re taken. Don’t forget that the pics are private by default, so there’s no worry that a naughty photo or two might end up being viewed by the wrong eyes. Give it a go!
