Similar to attachments, Gmail now lets  you view images you’ve received in messages in full-screen. Open a message that contains an image, options provided at the right bottom of it to download to your computer or save to drive, when you click on that image, it will appear in full- screen.

You Can Now View Attachments in Gmail and Save them to to Google Drive

Note: You can still able to right click on that image and open in a new tab for a larger view, but full-screen view of it in Gmail offers useful options such as Save to drive, Print, Download, Share on Google+, Zoom in/out, General info about that image, close button,  etc..
