Backed-up mobile shots can now be attached in Gmail

Gmail on the web has added a handy new feature which lets you quickly attach images that are already in Google+ through Android’s photo auto-backup feature. This is a really great addition, considering how easy it is to start writing an e-mail on your computer, find out you need a photo from your phone, and then have to crack open Google+ in a new tab to start rifling around to find the right shot.

Dropping backed-up pictures to your e-mails is easy: just click the Insert Photo button as usual, and the auto-backups will show up right away with the newest at the top. How often do you guys see yourselves using this feature? How do you typically share photos?
