Add a Picture to Your Email Signature within Redtail

If you are using Redtail's internal email client to send individual emails or Broadcast Emails, and want to add an image to your signature, you can do so by adding this within the Email Options section of your Site Preferences


You can see in the highlighted area above that I've already added the text portion of this signature.

Now, how do you get your image uploaded so that it will be included with your signature as well?

First, click inside your signature box so that your cursor is blinking in the approximate location where you'd like to place the image. Then, click the Insert Image icon in your Email Signature toolbar: 


You'll then be presented with a modal like the one below: 


Note the URL box that I've highlighted in yellow above. To insert an image in your signature file, it must appear online somewhere so that you can copy the image's URL for insertion here. One image hosting and sharing site you can use if you don't already have one is Imgur. Here are instructions for adding an image to your Broadcast Email using Imgur:

1. First make sure you know where your image is located on your machine, and ensure that it's in a proper image format (jpg, png).
2. Navigate to, then click "New Post" at the top left.
3. Upload the image using one of the options provided.
4. When you are on the screen that says "Give your post a title", you'll want to hover over the image. It'll give you a button with 3 dots [...] You should then see one of your options is "Get Share Links". Click that option.
5. Click the "Copy Link" button next to "BBCode [Forums]".
6. Go back to your Broadcast email, and paste the BBCode link into the "URL" space. Make sure to remove the [img] at the beginning, but leave the one at the end.
7. Adjust the size of your image as needed under height and width. 

If you are using a service other than Imgur, the process should be similar, but in any case, locate your desired image online and then copy its URL and paste it into this box, as in the example below: 


Then, click OK

Your image should then show up in your Email Signature box.

Just click Save Preferences in the upper right-hand corner of the Email Options box and your signature with the image will be included on all future emails originating from Redtail's internal email client.
