Make your signature stand out in your email messages by adding an image or animation. Use the Outlook.com WYSIWYG interface to insert almost any image or animation file type. Outlook.com supports JPEG, GIF, PNG, TIFF, BMP, SVG, and other popular graphics file types. Most graphics programs convert images and animations that aren't in these formats.
