Here, you'll learn how to host an image online, and how to add the hosted image to your email.
Hosting the Image Online
In order to get the URL for your image, you must host the image online (rather than a folder on your computer). We recommend using an image hosting service that allows you to use the hosted images for business/commercial use, such as Google or Facebook.

We recommend that you do not add images to your Email Signature (e.g. your profile photo), as the system does not automatically format these images, and there are several system-generated emails that will automatically include your profile photo:
