Benefits of Signature on Gmail
Signatures are beneficial especially in this era of spamming, hacking, and many cybercrimes. Some advantages are listed below:
1) Increases Trust
Daily, we receive a lot of spam emails. They just try to trap us and steal our personal information.
Adding a signature to your Gmail account enhances user confidence. Also, the receiver gives more attention to your email rather than just going back.
2) Company’s Identification
Every company or organization has its unique logo. Users recognize them by their logo. If you add a signature to your Gmail account, it will be easy for the user to identify you quickly.

People attract to unique things and you can take benefit of signature in this regard. Users, like me, don’t read the email carefully without any attractive thing.

How to Insert Image in Email Signature in Gmail?
There are many ways to do it, and I will teach you two methods to create your signature with an image. These are:
- Within Gmail Account
- Using Third-Party Service [Free]
1) Within Gmail Account
We will create a signature in some simple steps without using any other free service in this method. Follow the given steps carefully.
Step 1: Login Gmail Account
The first thing is to go to gmail.com and then, log in to your Gmail account, on which you want to add a signature.
Now, click on the Setting icon > See All Settings
Step 2: Navigate towards Signature Settings
In the General tab, go to the Signature section.
Hit on Create new:
Type name, and click on Create.
Step 3: Create Professional Signature
Now, we are able to create our own signatures. A complete text box will appear with all the required formatting options like add image, bold, align, italic, link, etc.
Design your signature according to your taste. I designed my own like below:
You can add an image or any logo to your signatures easily as you upload it in an email. Add links as well.
If you don’t know the function of any formatting element, simply hover your mouse pointer to that element, and Gmail will display the name of it.
Step 4: Apply Designed Signatures
After successfully making your signatures, the final step is to implement them to your email.
Implement on New Email
This method will show you to automatically add your signatures when you compose a new email.
In the signature defaults section, and then FOR NEW EMAILS USE, select your signature name.
Finally, scroll down to the end, and click on Save Changes.
Now, signatures will automatically appear in your new email.
Implement on Email Reply
Your signature will not appear on email reply automatically. We need to change one more setting for this.
In the signature defaults section, and then ON REPLY/FORWARD USE, select your signature name.
Check the box, insert signature before quoted text in replies, and remove the “–” line that precedes it.
Save changes again, and you are done.
