right actually I have to figure figure this out by myself it worked really well and here's the results I'm sharing the knowledge of what I've learned ok so this signature is built from 3 different elements we have the logo or you know your photo profile photo you have the information with them with links to and mix your social network social network accounts and a little bit of motto which I always send in my signature which really shows that I'm passionate about what I do ok so how to make it happen so first of all we would have to go to Google Drive and create a dog file so let's do it go to Google first or go directly to Drive and go to the drive you can of course use also Microsoft Word for this but I'm using Google Drive dogs because you know everyone has access to it so why not to make it more universal ok and let's create a new document file and sorry for the internet it's very slow today ok and let's name this file jemelle signature ok the most basic thing which you have to do is actually insert a table this table has to be built from 2 rows and 2 columns so very easy okay in this cell will have the logo or the image in this cell we have the information and social button and if we merge this one we will have the motto below the signature and in order to merge those two cells you need to highlight them both so just hold the click button left button on the mouse and with the right click and click on merge cells go to Google first or go directly to drive and go to the drive you can of course use also Microsoft Word for this but I'm using Google Drive dogs

Jamal signature okay the most basic thing which you have to do is actually insert a table this table has to be built from two rows and two columns so very easy okay in this cell will have the logo or

both so just hold the click button left button on the mouse and with the right click and click on merge cells right now we need to add the image so how to add the image and tibialis is what is this is the most difficult but I will show you how to do it I'm sure there are there is your logo or there are your images on the internet so normally what I do I just go on the internet and I search for my name and I look the image which I like I really like this one as I want to view the image so do the same with your image if you want to make it round this is me she that steps to go so I don't have the round option of my image so in order to make it round I'm actually coding it so don't Dora it's very easy to do it right-click on the image and do inspect element this is available in Chrome and in Firefox I think actually in Internet Explorer as well but I think it's more complicated with it with Internet and explore and here just click and type border – radius and dots and type 50% and press Enter perfect now let's do padding put right padding dots and the step 20 pixels perfect don't refresh the browser now what we want to do we just want to take a screenshot of this image to do this creation on all the windows use the snipping tool to do a screenshot on the Mac I just press shift comment and 4 and you'll be able to grab the screenshot very easily okay that should be good and in my case it's saved on the desktop now go to google photos and you have to upload the image to an album which will be available to everyone so what you have to do is upload the image from your desktop or wherever you're saved it this is mine and when it stops uploading so now it's ready add it to shirt album create new shirt album name it I don't own signature Gmail 2016 and press enter and this is drawn so this album is available to everyone everyone can view it okay now when it's done let's go back to your doc file okay let's go to insert and choose image click on your albums and here is my signature Gmail 2016 album click on it choose the image and click select and the photo is beautifully inserted to your signature okay so you can just adjust it to the size you want you need and you can slightly move the the table in the right column we are going to type the information want to share by email in our signature so for me I already saved my contact details sorry it's a fake phone number here for this tutorial and of course what is missing first of all it doesn't look beautiful for secondly it's missing them social icons but let's first make it beautiful so what I normally do I press ctrl-a save everything and I choose a font which is available for everyone and this phone is for example Georgia so I choose Georgia okay now let's make it a little bit prettier first of all I'll change this one to a big larger letters I'll change this to italic this is of course a link and I will change the link to my favorite color one of the old cars think is that it is my favorite color and and this is this should be a link to my latest post which is actually this one and I'm going to straightaway link it as well okay and here let's buy it let's make it fit to make as well and let's make let's change the color of this one as well to the pink so it looks pretty ok it looks like we are done now let's add social icons to the signature in order to do that we need social icons icons themselves to add to the signature so where to find them I use soap icons calm you can find a link below this video as well this tutorial which only she copy and paste here okay and this is my favorite set which I use quite often this set is free and you can use the way that whatever you want you can see commercial users user is also allowed we are going to use four icons which is Facebook icon I click and I open them in separate tabs just for information and so with control I'll open Instagram icon linked icon and Twitter icon okay now when the icons are open in different tabs I'm going to download download each of them to my desktop and then upload to Google photos album the one which we previously created for signature a gmail signature okay so I just click on on each of these and I'm sending it just by clicking and save it to your desktop it automatically saves okay now let's go back to your google photos and when we have them this is the album G hat like this closes and let's go back to Google photos and let's upload those iPhones so this album again okay so here are the icons I think I'm missing yes Twitter which is this one and let's upload them there about it very quickly let's add them to the shirt album which is the signature Gmail 2016 you already created today and what we've got it it's uploaded okay so now let's go back to the dog file and let's add those icons to our signature insert image and you see already they are uploaded here and every single one you have to select make it smaller click Next it may be quick space and again insert the next one and do the same with each other you a little bit boring but this is the best way to do it I think okay and the last one we just say Instagram on Instagram let's make them a little bigger the last two because they're slightly smaller than B link in one video makes Lourdes and okay I think this works yeah okay okay now what we have to do we have to link each of those icons to our profiles so let's just link and now what I have to do is just go to Google and search for my links social links you the same with each of them and here I have she knows digital punks calm okay okay now when I've done actually realize that I uploaded the wrong item so they are exactly not the same as the one which I have in the original signature but the ones who just you download it and upload that to Gmail are definitely the same image I have in the original signature so that shouldn't be a problem okay the next step is to make this border invisible to do that you have to select the entire table go to the border width and click 0 you see we don't have the border but what do you would like to do we would like to have a line here to do that we have to select a border of this cell so now it's active click anything else and go to the border width and choose one and a half pixels and let's set up the color of it to the same color you have the name so let's say that is filmy the custom color which is this one and let's see here we go then a signature is almost done that's only prettify this a little bit more let's select this text and let's slightly move it to the right so it's not so near to the border so let's make it almost the same distance as the pictures from the border ok now the final step we need to transfer the signature to your gmail account in order to do that just make sure that you really select everything I think you can do ctrl a and then copy this content go to your Gmail click on the Settings icon to settings and in the general tab you go down there is place for your signature as you can see I have already signature here so I will make changes but I won't save them you would have to save them so what you do is that click here ctrl a and press Delete to delete everything what you have there and then use control V and paste your signature and to make changes say save them here you Save Changes so now when you click on compose the signature should be automatically added to your email and that's it you've done it well done I hope you enjoyed this tutorial I'm max from she knows ich komm definitely go to my website and download your copy of SEO
