How can I stop Gmail from automatically showing thumbnail images?

If one of your contacts has already send you a picture using Gmail, anytime you open a new message from this contact Google shows you at the left side of your page a thumbnail of the last picture that he sent.

I don’t want this feature on my email.

Can anyone tell me which setting turns this off?

      Thanks Ha14, but this option is for email that contains externally linked images. What I am talking about is when you open a mail from a contact that has already sent you a picture file. Google will show at the upper right, down to gear setting a link called: recent photos. And you can see a preview of all the recent photo that this contact sent you.
      That's what I am trying to get rid off!

    There should be a hide setting in the inbox of email.
