cool gmail hack

irst 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://img126.imageshack.us/img126/1627/zi060813vo1.gif

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. smile.gif 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 biggrin.gif

post your results below. smile.gif 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.
