If you like to send lots of photos from Gmail, Google's latest feature addition might save you some much-needed time. The search giant says it will today begin rolling out a new button for Gmail on the web that enables you to embed albums and smartphone shots with a couple of button clicks. Images stored in Google Photos albums or shots uploaded using the auto-backup feature in the Google+ app can be imported by clicking the new "Insert Photo" icon, which also allows you to make a few tweaks before they're fired off to a lucky recipient. You'll obviously get more use out of the feature if you're already enjoying Google's cheap photo storage, but we understand if you're not too comfortable with Mountain View having access to your family snaps.
