1) Save your .gif email signature file into a "signatures" folder on your desktop or in your "my documents" folder.
2) Open Microsoft Outlook and click on "new" and create a new mail message.
3) Once the new message window pops up, click the "signatures" tab above and select "signatures"
4) Now the signatures window should appear, if you have existing signatures you can select them and remove them from the list.
5) To add a new signature, click "new" and it should ask you to specify a name of your choice.
6) fill in the name accordingly and then click on the picture icon above the body text field.
7) you should now be able to browse for your .gif file in the "signatures" folder that you created, select the .gif file and click "insert"
8) once selected, click "okay" and send a test mail to a friend to ensure the success of the setup.
Until recently many of us did not realize that graphics could be used in the default signature function of Outlook Express. Thanks to information posted by Rosie, we now know that it can be done easily.
The basic instructions for doing this were originally posted by TulsaRose from information provided by Carol M. Below is my expanded, detailed version of how to turn graphics into HTML so they can be used in your OUTLOOK EXPRESS SIGNATURE function. At first this may look complicated but it really is an easy process if you carefully follow each step.
To simplify this process, I suggest going to your C drive and make a new folder called OE SIGS. For this project it will be much simpler than using that long path that leads to My Documents and your picture folders. Then, save a copy of the graphics you want to use into that C:\OE SIGS folder. Next, create a new folder called MY SIGS OE in My Documents. You will need that later on. The files you put in these 2 folders should not be deleted, moved or renamed. Otherwise, your sigs in OE will not work. It would be best if anyone who uses these instructions will use the same folder names and locations as described above. That way if help is needed it would be easier if everyone is doing it the same way with the same folder names and locations.
CREATING THE HTML FILES:
* Make sure you have already placed copies of the desired graphics in C:\OE SIGS. Also make sure you have created a new folder in My Documents called MY SIGS OE
* Open Notepad by going to: START>ALL PROGRAMS>ACCESSORIES>NOTEPAD or you can put a shortcut for Notepad on the desktop.
* Copy the following line shown in red:
<img src="http://mystuffs.co.za/C:\OE SIGS\YOUR FILE NAME.gif">
* Paste it on Notepad. Replace "Your file name" with the actual name of your picture file from C:\OE SIGS and make sure it ends with .gif or .jpg depending on what format your file is. The file name must be entered exactly or the signature will not work.
* Click "file", "save as" and browse to find the folder MY SIGS OE and click to open it. Name the file whatever you want to call it. Example: Butterfly sig.htm. Make sure it ends in .htm. Click in the "save as type" box and select "all files". Then "save"
* Your sig HTML file is now saved. Be sure not to move, delete or rename these HTML files. Otherwise, OE will not know where to find them.
* NOTE: The line of code as well as the picture file names must be exact. One wrong letter or space can cause the signature not to work.
TO ADD THE SIG IN Outlook Express:
* In OE click TOOLS>OPTIONS>SIGNATURES
Click "new". It will name it "Signature 1", etc. You can click it then click "rename" and call it whatever you want.
* Look below and select "file", then "browse" to find MY DOCUMENT\MY SIGS OE folder. Click in the "files of type" box and click "HTML". Then, Select the desired file and click "open".
* If you want the sig to automatically be added to all outgoing email put a check by the option at the top. If you have several sigs and you want one to be default, just click it and click "make default". Then, click "apply" and "ok".
I chose not to check mine to insert by default.
* Start a new blank email or stationery. If you checked for the sig to be inserted by default it will automatically be there. Otherwise, when you are ready for the sig you would click INSERT, SIGNATURE and select the desired one. I find that it is better not to have it insert the sig by default. However, you decide the way that works best for you.
Recently a client of our had some difficulty adding additional images to their Virtuemart items. This details how to correctly add an additional image.
Firstly, it I suggest that resizing you image before hand is always a good idea. I would highly recommend - Image Resizer Clone
Secondly, make sure where possible that your image names are always one word and do not what special characters in (such as " ( " and " ) "). This was a tricky one to notice.
Now when you wish to add an addition image. Click on the Product Item Name, then on the left hand side click Add File/Image
Choose you file and hit Apply in the top right of Joomla.
You can remove the tick if you wish to not resize the file your are uploading.
NOTE: if you want to add and additional image, be sure to follow this process from the beginning again - exactly! If you do not, you will be overwriting this existing file (placeholder) that you have just uploaded.
A quick preview or F5 of your front end should show show you a new thumbnail. If the images does not load up from there check how you have named your file.
