How to Insert Image in email yahoomail / gmail

I am going to explain how to insert Images within the email (Inline).

The best way which I use most of the times is to upload the desired image in any image hosting website and use the link. I will explain how to do this step by step.

Goto any Image Hosting website, generally I use
If you have an account with it you can login/ No problem even if you don't have any account.

Browse your image from your computer and upload it.

I like the feature 'Image resize', it reduces the original image into the selected size and uploads.

Once the image is uploaded you will be given with a link.
Copy the Direct Link and open it in Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer.

Only Image should be opened. After opening the image press Ctrl + A (Select All) and copy the image Ctrl + C (Copy).
This will copy the image as Rich Text Format.

Now compose a mail and paste (Ctrl+V) it in the mail body. This works in yahoo / gmail. I guess this works in any Web mail client.

Gmail Feature

Recently gmail released a new Lab version to insert images in email. You will have an Image Button in gmail .

If you don't see such icon. Enable it from Labs.
Goto Settings (Click gear Icon and Click on Settings)
Goto labs and enable Inserting I images, as shown below.
Now you will see insert image icon while composing an email.
