going demented with frustration here......

I use Gmail for a major volunteer role and need to put the organisation logo in my signature. I used to have it, and the logo was updated, and we were instructed to start using the new one.

Can't see for the life of me how to add an image.

If you go to Settings>Signature> insert image

you HAVE to put in a URL (it won't let you add a Jpeg)

Can't figure it out at all, can anyone help a non techie?

I use gmail, but I don't have a signature, and wouldn't know how to create one.

Good luck, I'm sure someone here will be able to help you.

You can add it to a free photo sharing site like Flickr. Once you upload the picture of your logo and it's on the site you can view it in different sizes, right click the one you want and choose something like view image. Copy that web address and put that in your Gmail signature settings. Hope this helps!

Host it on photo bucket or Flickr, then you will have a URL for the image.

It won't allow you to use a jpg because it won't host the image. Gmail wants you to use another site to host it. Make sure you size the image before loading into the photosharing site. It doesn't look like you can scale it.

It works (bit of a roundabout way, but works!
