    All files will be downloaded now instead of opening in a  new tab to be previewed; however, if you would like to view images without downloading them, then you could replace the current image variable with this one:

    {IMG:FieldName:Width:Height}

    Where: 

    IMG - It's the variable to display images instead of only show the link. 

    FieldName: It's your file upload's name, you will also find it by following this guide: How-to-find-field-IDs-and-names

    Width and Height - Both variables are numeric values, they will help you to set the size the image will have in the email, by default the image will have the original size. 

    This way you will have images displayed on your email notification and you will not need to click on them. 

    Hope this helps.
