  1. Type your message and then add two hyphens (–) at the bottom of your message where a signature will normally appear.
  2. Type your signature information just below the hyphens (make sure it looks like a signature which is automatically appended)
  3. Copy the image you are looking to add in your signature. If the image you want to add is not on the internet then you can upload it to your Google drive or other image storing websites like Imgur and copy it from there. However, you should note that uploading large files to Google drive will deplete your Gmail account storage
  4. Paste the copied picture where you want it to appear in your Gmail signature.

In case the picture you just pasted doesn’t show up then it is possible that your plain text mode in Gmail might be on. To fix this, you need to click on the three dots icon available at the bottom of the Gmail compose message window and uncheck the “Plain Text mode”.
