Insert An Image in Your Gmail Signature

by gryphen

Here's how to insert an image into your Gmail signature or into the text body of your email message:

  1. Upload your image to an online photo storage site, ie. Imageshack, Flickr, Photobucket, etc.
  2. Once the image is uploaded, find the direct link for the image.
  3. Copy the link address to the clipboard, open a blank tab in your browser, and paste the address into the address bar.
  4. Once the image is loaded in your browser, drag your mouse across the image so the whole image gets selected or highlighted (it will turn dark to indicate that it is successfully highlighted/selected).
  5. Right-click the highlighted image with your mouse cursor over it, then from the menu which appears, choose COPY.
  6. Open your Gmail account in a new tab and choose COMPOSE MAIL. Use RICH FORMATTING instead of PLAIN TEXT.
  7. Type the text of your e-mail and at the place you wish to insert your image, press CTRL-V to paste the copied image into your message body. The image will then show and appear embedded.

Cool. Your recipients should be online to be able to view the image. In Gmail, they will need to choose DISPLAY IMAGES BELOW when they receive your e-mail with the embedded image.
