How to add an image to an email signature on iPhone or iPad

Nowadays, both our personal and professional lives are on a smartphone. Business email communication became even more comfortable when you could reply to emails during the morning commute to the office or manage urgent requests after working hours. What an advantage for workaholics!

Essentially, you want your mobile communication to be as effortless as from the computer, and email signature is a significant part of it. A visually appealing email signature sent from your iOS mail app will most likely catch attention.

Here you are a simple step-by-step guide to help you create an iPhone email signature with a picture that will be displayed correctly.

Before discovering how to add an image to your iPhone email signature, make sure your email client supports an HTML-based signature. Besides, evaluate the quality of a picture and improve it either on your own or by addressing a professional images manipulation service

Step 1.

Go to ‘Settings’ on your iPhone, scroll down, tap on ‘Mail’ and open the ‘Signature’ field at the bottom of a context menu.

Step 2.

If you still don't have a signature, then create one. 

You can use an email signature generator and create an iPhone email signature with a picture online.

Also, you can choose the iPhone email signatures template unless you want to add a picture to the email signature manually. In case you still want to add a picture to an existing signature, go to step 3. Tap 'Per Account' if you want to have individual signatures for each email account.

Step 3.

Often iPhone email signature images or logos are not showing. To avoid it, make sure you have a relevant picture on your iPhone ready to use. Send it with a blank email to yourself ahead, or save it directly to a Photos app from the Internet.

Find in iPhone signature image you would like to add to your iPhone email signature and copy it (tap and hold the image, then select ‘Copy’ in the context menu).

Step 5.

Go back to your iPhone email signature editor (‘Settings’ -> ’Mail’ -> ‘Signature’) and select ‘Paste’ the iOS mail signature image you have just saved. Note you will not be able to resize an image or logo in the signature editor, so you would need to do it before to match the mobile version of your iOS email signatures. The best-recommended dimensions are 320 px wide with a file size under 50KB.

Step 6.

You might notice a grey area around your new signature after you insert an image. To get rid of it, type in an extra space after the picture, and the grey area will disappear.

Step 7.

Your iOS mail signature is ready to use now. Changes are saved automatically. Tap ‘Mail’ in the top left corner, and do not forget to test the signature in an email on your iPhone mail app.

Voila! Following these 7 steps, you will get a great-looking iPhone signature. Hope it was helpful for you to unveil how to add an image to your email signature. If you have more than one email account, repeat the same steps for each one. 

To see how your signature looks on the screen and in the recipient email, create a new email and send it to yourself.

Also, you could insert the entire signature to your iPhone email signature editor, the same way you just did with an iPhone email signature image. In this situation, you might encounter some HTML coding alterations, although they are easily fixable to get an email signature on iPhone or iPad.
