A friend of mine just sent me several pictures embedded in his email. We both use Gmail. When I open his email to reply to him, the images are automatically expanded to high-resolution (5,000 pixels horizontally) which makes it very difficult for me to browse through his email, the Gmail interface and even start my response email.
I looked at this thread:
How do I force images to hide in Gmail? but the information there seems to be outdated as I can't find the option
"Don't display from now on" on my Gmail interface anymore.
Is there a way to ask Gmail to show thumbnails of the pictures embedded/attached in the email, instead of the full resolution images?
