While Gmail users have been able to insert images into an email’s body for many years now, Yahoo! Mail users are just now getting this feature.

The “inline images” feature started rolling out to Yahoo! mail users in the US. It is being gradually rolled out right now in the US and it will be rolled out to international markets in the near future.


“At Yahoo Mail, we believe in visually rich emails. You’ll notice that with recent features, such as Stationery or Link Preview, we provide you with ways to say more than just words,” said Mayukh Bhaowal, Senior Product Manager.

“Today in Yahoo Mail, we added the ability to include images within the body of your message. A simple but effective feature users have requested. Now, you can drag and drop images right into the body of a message, or paste an image straight from your clipboard,” Mayukh Bhaowal added.

Yahoo! Mail – Insert Images into the Email Body
  • Drag & drop – you can insert an image by simply dragging and dropping it into the email you’re composing.
  • Paste – copy an image to the clipboard, then paste it into the email you’re composing.
  • Two sizes – when you add an image to the email body, you can pick one of two sizes.
  • GIFs – animated GIFs are supported too.
Google introduced this sort of functionality more than 5 years ago. Back in 2009, Google Labs released an experiment called “insert images.” Gmail users who enabled it where able to insert images directly into an email’s body.

Google Labs experiments that proved to be useful and popular, were taken out of Google Labs and implemented into Gmail. That’s what happened in this case. The option to insert images into the email’s body proved to be so popular that it eventually graduated from Google Labs and became an integral part of Gmail.

Instructions on how to insert images into Gmail messages are available here.
