How to add an image from Google Drive to your Gmail signature


Gmail offers you a nice feature of adding a signature to every email you write. Moreover, you can even put in the logo of your company there. In this article I am going to tell you how to set up an image to your Gmail signatuare and also how to retrieve deleted Gmail emails.

Previously (before 2015 hit, I believe) you could only upload the image from your desktop or insert it by URL, which was not very convenient as you do not always have access to your computer. But now the cloud computing era has brought in many good changes into our lives.

So here are instructions on how to add an image into your signature from GDrive.

First click the gear icon in the top right corner and go to Settings.


Scroll down till you find the Signature block.

Click on the text field to edit it and select the “Insert image” command:


In the pop-up window you can find the image you need at your G Drive and insert it into the signature by double-clicking on it.

You can resize the image if it is too big. You can set up small, medium or large size for it.


The only problem you can come across here concerns the image accessibility. Make sure in your Google Drive that the image can be viewed by anyone from the outside.

And don’t forget to save the changes!

How to retrieve deleted gmail

When you delete an email in Gmail it will be kept in the trash folder for only 30 days. After that it will be deleted forever, and no images in the signature will help you to get it back. However there is a workaround how to retrieve deleted Gmail emails. if you regularly back up Google account with applications like Upsafe, you will always be able to retrieve emails even if they are completely lost in your account.
