New Gmail Feature - Copy and paste images from your clipboard directly into the body of a Gmail message

You can now copy and paste images that are on your clipboard right into the body of a Gmail message!!

I just accidentally discovered this new Gmail feature. We used to have to save the image locally and then either drag and drop it to the email or manually as an attachment.

Here’s how:

1. Get the image on your clipboard. I use WindowsKey+S to get a screenshot using OneNote. But you can also use CTRL+PrtScn. There are probably many other ways, but you get the idea.

I’m going to use this image as an example:

2. Open up a Gmail message and put your cursor in the Gmail message where you want to paste the image.

3. Hit CTRL+V.

(the loading graphic appears)

(and then you see the image pasted into the body of your Gmail message)

There you go. An inline image pasted into your Gmail message.

Very cool.
