    Gmail changed the default behavior for images. All images are now shown automatically.

    If you want to turn off this behavior and go back to the old way where you clicked the link to show images from a sender:

    Open your Settings:

    Gmail Settings.JPG

    In the General tab change the External Content preference:

    Gmail external content - always show images.JPG
