Image Signature in Your Yahoo Mail, Amazing!
If you are a frequent user of Yahoo Mail and want to increase the professional look of your emails (or perhaps you just want to add some dash of fun and creativity in your emails), then you have stumbled upon the right article.
This will show you how you can add images, photos or logos in the signature portion of the new Yahoo Mail. You won't believe how easy it is to do it!
By the way, in case you encounter some vague procedures here, feel free to comment on them below. I will be really glad to help you out!
Anyway, let's get on it!
Important Update (February 2020):
It has been observed that the latest version of Yahoo Mail no longer supports adding photos in the signature via the settings. However, the old method of adding the signature will still be detailed in this article, just in case they bring the feature back.
It will then be followed by a new, although manual, method of adding your photo signature in Yahoo emails.
How to Add Image in Yahoo Mail Signature
1. Aside from being on the Yahoo! Mail page, the first step is to click on Gear Symbol or Options (found on the upper right side of the page). This will make a drop down list appear; just select Settings.
2. After being directed to the Settings page, select and click on the Writing Email Tab. From there you will now be able to edit your email signature.
Go on, write the text portion of your signature! After that, you may proceed with the next step. Oh, make sure that this is selected in the options: "Show a rich text signature". You may check out the photo below to be guided.
3. The next step is to copy the image itself. You may do this by opening a file using any web browsers. (In my case, I used Google Chrome). And then, right-click on the picture, and select Copy image.
4. Go back again to the editing space of the Signature tab, and paste the image you copied there.
5. Wait for the photo to load up properly. If nothing shows, it may mean that you were not able to copy the image successful (i.e. clipboard is empty). You may go back again to Step 3 if this happens.
6. If everything goes well, the photo will load up fine. Then, the final step is to click on Save, and you're all done!
Next time when you compose an email, the signature will automatically be inserted. And it means your email will now look more dashing!
Latest Method on Adding Photo Signature in Yahoo
As earlier warned, Yahoo Mail no longer supports automatically adding photos in the signature portion of the email. When you try doing the steps elaborated above, nothing will happen upon hitting the paste button.
As a remedy, what you can do is to do the following steps:
1. Enter the text portion of your signature (if any) via the old method. While adding photos is no longer supported, Yahoo still has the feature of adding text-based signatures. There is no need to click on Save because it automatically saves anything you type in.
2. You may now proceed writing your email by hitting on Back to Inbox > Compose. After clicking on Compose, you'll automatically see the text portion of the signature your previously wrote.
3. You will now manually add the photo portion of your signature by copying and pasting the image where you want it to appear. You will have to do this every time you write an email.
To illustrate, suppose I want to have my logo appear after the text portion of my email signature. I right-click on the photo I want to include in my email signature, and then click on Copy or Copy image.
Paste the image right after the text portion of your signature, or anywhere you want the photo to appear.
You are good to go, and your email will have a more creative or professional look depending on how you curate the photo and overall look of your signature.
The primary difference of the latest method is that you have to manually add the photo portion of your signature. This means you have to do it every single time you write a new email. Let's just hope that Yahoo brings back the old feature, so that it will be easier for us.
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
Common Questions and Issues
