E2E Encryption doesn't encrypt images?

I enabled full E2E encryption on my Rocketchat server and when I log in without putting in my E2E Encryption password, all the text is scrambled and unreadable. This all works fine and as it should.
However, I am still able to see all the images even when I don’t put in the E2E encryption password.

Is encryption of images being shared in a room going to be added? I feel this is a security issue and images plus other content should really be E2E encrypted as well.
