Adding and changing images

Using Default Images

If you are using the same images across multiple email signatures (like a business logo), upload it to the Default Images folder on your Dashboard first.

Then when you create the signature, add the Default image to the signature, under the Images tab, by Add Image > Use Default Image in any of the primary, secondary or banner image positions.

If you are adding unique images, per signature (you don't need to the image across all signatures, like a profile photo) you can upload it directly to each email signature in the Image tab and select "Use this image".
