Add Images to your Gmail Signature [Now default in Gmail]


Just a couple of days ago, I had written an hack regarding how to add images and custom HTML to your gmail signature without the use of any extensions or add-ons.
But now the gmail team themselves are allowing to add images in signatures.

Here’s how to configure it:

  1. Head to your gmail settings
  2. UnderĀ Signature, you can see a WYSIWYG editor
  3. Edit your signature and save the changes
  4. There you go, you are done with creating your gmail signature.

But still there is a limitation: You can add images only that are hosted on the web and cannot add images from your desktop. We strongly recommend that you upload your pics to flickr or picasa and then give its URL rather than use some other third-party image hosting services.

Anyhow bloggers and IT professionals may consider to stick to the canned responses method, as they might have two mailing streams: personal and official.

Though this is a very good move by Gmail, Which method are you looking forward to? The default one or the canned responses method? Drop your views in the comments.
