Gmail Change Now Displays All Images By Default

As a heavy user of Gmail, one of the things that has always bothered me is that I have to click a link to see any images that are included in an email. If you rarely get image laden emails from people you trust, having to click a link to see images isn't that big a deal. In my line of work with thousands of emails coming in each day with images of products that I need to see, it meant I clicked a lot of links just to see pictures.

If you loathe that extra click Gmail required to see pics as much as me, you will be glad to hear that Gmail has made a change . All images are now shown by default. The way Gmail does this is by receiving the images on its own proxy servers rather than showing them off other servicers. That allows the images to load by default without you having to worry about viruses and other nefarious software tagging along.

In use, I don’t see any time difference between the emails loading with images blocked and loading the images along with them. Google wrote on the Gmail blog, "Your messages are more safe and secure, your images are checked for known viruses or malware."

The new feature wasn’t available for me early this morning, but was live at the time of writing. The default images are available on desktops now by users of mobile apps will need to wait until next year.
