I really like that Gmail does not show images by default but now I accidentally clicked on that "Always display images from this sender" in one message.

Please, does anyone know how to undo the setting, i.e. to again ask whether or not to show images from that sender?

  1. In Gmail, click on the settings icon enter image description here
  2. Click "See all settings"
  3. Under General > Images
  4. Select "Ask before displaying external images"
  5. Scroll down, Click "Save Changes".

That will do the work for you.

On Android App

  1. Click on Hamburger menu and tap settings.
  2. Tap on your email account.
  3. Scroll to the bottom and click on "Images".
  4. Select "Ask before displaying external images (also disables dynamic email.)"

    Neither of these appear relevant / up-to-date any longer.

  • 1 The question is asking how to reverse the choice for a single sender. Your answer is how to enable the global setting which is not the OP's problem. 2 This is web apps not Android Enthusiasts.

I asked Google Workspace Support this question few times over the years. While the answer above works in most emails, for some senders option 'Images from this sender are always displayed. Don't display from now on' is missing. Support cannot tell why.

User: I want disable images from A SENDER, some specific sender which have pictures displayed at all times since I clicked display images from this sender once.
Google Workspace Support: At the moment, the feature you're requesting for is not currently available as we can only ask to remove the images from all sender as you may have seen on Gmail settings; however, we'd love to get your feedback in order to improve our products moving forward. You could submit a feature request to our team by visiting https://g.co/workspace/featureideas

    Please add text as text rather than images. P.S. Have you asked if this applies for consumer accounts too? Feb 1, 2023 at 21:38
