4. Insert photo into your Outlook signature

If you also want to insert your photo for the final fine-tuning of your perfect Outlook signature, please note the following:

1. For what purpose will I use the signature?

For example, e-mail applications have become a matter of course today.

So, regardless of your e-mail attachment with the application documents, you have the opportunity to present yourself already with the signature at your best.

2. Which image format is the right one for my signature, so that it looks the same everywhere?

If you are unsure which format to choose the best, or your current portrait photo looks more like a standard application photo than a business photo, we recommend professional career photo editing.

The advantage: It does not need a new photo shoot here.

An image upload to our Partner Starmazing.de can make sense here.

Then simply insert your photo as follows:

  • Position the cursor at the position where you want to insert the image.
    (for example, between address and other contact details such as phone and e-mail address)
  • Then click the image upload icon and select an optimized photo.
