When you create an email signature in Yahoo Mail that's appended to all of your outgoing emails, you can make liberal use of all the fancy text formatting tools available but you cannot add images to your signature when using this method.

You can also insert pictures into your messages manually but if you want to use a picture as your email signature so that it shows up each time you send emails, you'll have to go a different route.

How to Insert a Picture Into Your Yahoo Mail Signature

  1. Open Yahoo Mail.
  2. Click or tap the gear/settings icon next to your name at the top right of Yahoo Mail.
  3. Choose Settings.
  4. Go into the Accounts tab.
  5. Choose your email address under the Email addresses section.
  6. Scroll down and enable email signatures if it's not already turned on. You can do this by putting a check in the box next to Append a signature to the emails you send.
  7. Copy the picture that you want to use in the signature.

    If you have a photo on your computer that you need to use in the signature, you'll have to first upload it online so that it's accessible through your browser. You can upload it to a website like Imgur but there are plenty of other ones you can choose from.

    If it's really big, try resizing it so that it fits better with your email signature.
  8. Position the cursor wherever it is that you want the image to be. If you want to enter regular text too, you can do that at this time.
  1. Right-click and paste the copied picture. If you're on Windows, you can use Ctrl+V, or the Command+V shortcut on macOS.
  2. Choose the Save button when you're done adding the picture to your signature.
