New photo integrations for Gmail and Google+

It seems Google's services are getting better and better. With today's announcement comes a minor update that will either make your life a little bit better or have no effect at all.

"Gmail and Google+ are both great places to share images and videos with your friends, and we're always looking for ways to make this easier. We’ve been showing recent Google+ posts in the people widget for some time, and a few weeks ago we added the ability for you to share YouTube videos from your email to your Google+ stream.

Today, we're expanding recent Google+ posts in the people widget to include thumbnails of the photos and videos shared in the post. We’re also making it easier to share inline images in emails -- just hover your mouse over the image in your email and you will see an option to share it on Google+. We're still rolling out the update, so if you don't see it yet, sit tight." - Gmail Team

From the post above on their Google+ page, the Gmail team has announced more better integration between Google+ and Gmail. You can now share inline images in emails to Google+ with a single click of a button.
