How to add a Gmail signature with image (THE EASIEST WAY)

Gmail with HTML image signatureI published a post on how to have a Gmail signature with images last year and it was quite a hit, receiving multiple good feedbacks. Little that you know, I actually use a much easier way to have a Gmail signature image, using WiseStamp (there is an extension for Firefox, Chrome, Flock, and Thunderbird at the moment). With WiseStamp, it always works and adding your social network info requires no effort at all. Let’s have a look on how easy it is to add a Gmail signature image using WiseStamp. Oh, actually, it works not on just Gmail, but also on other popular email services such as Yahoo Mail, AOL, and Hotmail.

Since I mostly use Gmail as my main account, I’ll only discuss about adding an image signature in Gmail but it should work with others.

Adding Gmail Signature Image with WiseStamp

  1. Download and Install WiseStamp for Firefox/Chrome/Flock browser or Mozilla Thunderbird email client
  2. In Firefox (the one I chose to install), Go to Tools-WiseStamp after you have finished installing the extension
  3. In here, you can add your signature and also your social network details:
    Add Gmail Signature Image
  4. Play around with the editor to create your ultimate Gmail signature with images, photos, and also your social network details! There are also some great samples to give you ideas over at WiseStamp HTML signature samples.
  5. Don’t forget to go to the “Settings” option on the top of the window to make sure your signature will be inserted correctly later on:
    Insert gmail image signature
  6. Now go to Gmail (or whatever you are using) and enjoy :)
  7. You can even add and store different signatures (there is a WiseStamp button on your Gmail toolbar when you compose/reply an email to change between signatures). This is very handy if you want to use 1 Gmail account for multiple business or personal/formal signatures.

Here is what it looks like when you compose or reply an email in Gmail with the WiseStamp extension enabled on Firefox:

Gmail with HTML image signature

This is much easier to create and apply to Gmail compared to my previous post. Unfortunately there is no way to sync signatures between computers but here is what you can do to smartly “export” and “import” WiseStamp signatures. On the WiseStamp settings (where you create your image signature), there is an HTML button to view the HTML source of your signature. If you click it, you can get the HTML code of the current signature. Copy it to a file or email the code to yourself, then paste it on a different WiseStamp installation on a different computer. This way you can have the same signature on different computers. You still have to add your Social Network info though, but it’s not a big deal.

Like this post? Please share it to your friends and let us all have great & professional looking signatures! (I need to design a better one too)

  1. Oh this is awesome thank you! I’ve been meaning to add an image to my gmail signature for ages, going to download now :D

  2. I tried to add my pic using your first method. No problem adding the pic, but it was full size. How and where do you get it more thumbnail size? I will attempt WiseStamp, once I hear back that I will be able to reduce the pic size. Also, I did not understand how to put my name next to the pic, as your pic and name is shown. Thanks.

    • I think I’ve figured out how to add my name, not realizing it is a guess as to where to place it, but still full size picture. I just want a very small picture with my name next to it. Please advise. Thanks.

    Basically there are two options for the picture resize:
    1. My favourite program for picture resize is XnView ( http://www.xnview.com )
    2. You can always use on-line picture resize service. Just use google with the phrase “on-line picture resize”

    • Thanks for helping Karin out :)
      Hope you are able to resize the picture. If you still don’t understand how, maybe you can ask a friend to help you out

  4. Thanks all. After a Google research, I found that after the picture is in the Composed Mail, you can click on the photo and choose from small (thumbnail size), medium, and large. It’s that simple! I am still have trouble placing two lines of text next to my pic and centered with the pic, if you have any suggestions for that dilemma. Thanks.

  5. This doesn’t really help. WiseStamp still requires that to have a URL to paste in rather than uploading an image, and I’ve no idea how to do that. It says you can take it form your web site, but my web site doesn’t have the logo in the format that I use for my e-mail signature.

  6. I enjoyed this information. My question is can it be added to google apps. Our business runs our E-mail through google apps and wanted to use it in there. Unfortunatley, it seems to be only runnng in my personal gmail account.

  7. Dear Michael ,

  8. Happy to have found this today on my search on how to add a photo for my gmail signature. Just downloaded and making my two free signatures right now :)

  9. Glad to have found this post because I was wondering how to move my signature on my pc to my new macbook…Great tip and thanks!!

  10. This is the best tutorial I’ve ever seen. Using the link was easy and fast. It’s usually a nightmare for me to try to do anything like this, I’m not great with computers. Thank you for saving me hours of work (literally, I’ve tried this before with no luck) Thank you!
