Attaching photos taken with a smartphone has become easier in the latest update to the Gmail web app. The new Insert Photo button lets users share specific photos or entire albums from their Google+ accounts, including those uploaded from a phone using the Auto Backup feature. Rather than have users have to return to their mobile devices to locate images they wish to share, they can get access to their images from the web.

Gmail users can attach local images the old-fashioned way through attachments, but the Insert Photo button simplifies sending photos stored online. Dragging on the corner of a photo lets users resize the image to be small, best fit, or original size when they are sent. Users have the option of sending as an attachment or inline image.

Google is updating Gmail today, so the new email option should be rolling out to all users soon.
