At signaturky we strive to make our app secure and do not request excess permissions.
Because of that app does not require any Google Drive™ permission and does not have access to any private files.

Open Google Drive™ and create new folder with name Signature Images:

  • (1) Select “New”
  • (2) Select “New folder”
  • (3) In modal window type name of folder (Signature Images)
  • (4) And click “Create”

After a couple of seconds new folder will be created - click twice to open it.

The type of image should be JPG/JPG (extension `.jpg` or `.jpeg`) or PNG (extension `.jpg`).
Please note that SVG (extension `.svg`) is not well supported by email clients including GMail!

Now you can upload a file by selecting New -> File upload or dragging the file on to the page:

Now click on the Copy link to copy the link to the file. It will be in the format:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1C0eGcZ22GC-obKGVAA2K3HwjGsSdSGP9/view?usp=sharing

Copy the part between the /d/ and /view and prepend it with https://drive.google.com/uc?id=

For our example it will be:

https://drive.google.com/uc?id=1C0eGcZ22GC-obKGVAA2K3HwjGsSdSGP9

This link can be used in the signature or in any place where you need to embed an image:
