A few days back, Gmail added the functionality to drag and drop attachments from desktop in an email message. It works quite simple – drag the file(s) you want to attach and drop it in the attachment pane of Gmail. The file is instantly uploaded and attached to your email message. This has proved to be a useful feature, you no longer have to hit the old browse button, navigate to the location of the file and then click “Upload”.
Now Gmail has added another cool feature – you can attach images in the email message body by a simple drag and drop from your desktop, or from any other folder in your computer.
Suppose you have a bunch of images which you want to attach to an email message. Instead of clicking the “image upload” button and uploading each file one by one, you can select all the image files and drag them in the message body as shown below:
All the images will be uploaded one by one and when the upload is complete, you can align or resize the images as per your requirements. So simple, yet so useful.
As of now, this new feature is only available for Google Chrome but Gmail will soon implement it on other browsers as well. [ via Gmail blog ]
