Business Logo Signatures and MAC Outlook 2011

Standard

Hello everyone,

Today we are going to show you how to insert a picture, such as a business logo, into your signature in Outlook 2011 for the MAC.

It’s fairly easy to do, but rather frustrating if you try and do it directly from Outlook…Because you can’t.

In other versions of Outlook such as the ones on the PC you have a nice editing palate that includes a formatting toolbar similar to they way you edit a new email. Using this toolbar you can easily click add or insert picture from the options and insert your Logo. In the MAC version there is no such thing. There is however a format drop down menu that allows you to edit font, color, add hyperlinks, etc. But if you want to add your business logo you will have to go about another way.

To sum it up, simply use Microsoft Word as the “Missing Palate” and when your done you can copy and paste it into your signature in outlook. Here is a quick video to show you how.
