Email Signature Help

This is our central help page which contains a wealth of information regarding making company email signatures and graphics and associated tasks. Creating a business email signature block is a difficult task even for a seasoned professional developer. Email clients will typically change html when they receive it, stripping out tags replacing tags and more. Knowing what each email client does to the email signature is not documented as far as we know. This knowledge only comes from decades of experience. And once you have your email signature you can bet your bottom dollar that something changes: new phone number, new job title etc. so the process starts all over again.

Help reducing image size

Image link to XnView to convert graphic images If your image is to big (over 1mb) we recommend Xnview, I personally have used it for decades and its a fantastic bit of software. I think I've had XnView on just about every PC I've owned. You can download it here
When we make the email signature, uploaded images are resized to be 90 pixels high keeping the image in proportion.
If the uploaded image is less than 90 pixels high to start with, then they may look fuzzy on the signature.

I have allsorts of expensive graphic programs but still use XnView to find my images on my computer because its the easiest and fastest. I have many thousands of images and typically I will use XnView to find the one I want then open it up in photoshop to edit it.
XnView is one of those little Jewels of the internet.

Why We like Xnview

  • Completely Free
  • Very small download 6kb
  • Works on Mac and PC
  • We've used it for Decades
