Business Card Design in Photoshop : Using a Business Card as an Email Signature

Business Card Design in Photoshop : Using a Business Card as an Email Signature


Hi, I’m Gary for Expert Village Let’s see
how to take our newly created business card and make it so that it’s in a format where
we can use as a signature in our emails. The first thing we want to do is we want to save
it as a JPEG file. So we go down to Save As. And now we have saved on our computer the
JPEG file. So we’re going to go ahead and close this and we’ll go into our email program.
I’m using Microsoft Outlook and you go to Tools and Options and we see that we have
a mail format tab. We go ahead and click on that and if you go down to the bottom we see
that we have our signatures where we put the settings for the signatures. So we go ahead
and click on signatures and we have another window open up. And in this window what we
want to do is we want to create a new signature and then we’re going to use the file we created
our business card. So we select new and we give it a name and we’ll go ahead click on
next. Now what we want to do here is we’re not using text we’re using an image. And it
has to be saved in an HTM format. That’s the file name .HTM so I’m going to click on advanced
edit. Now the program is going to tell me that it wants to open up a Microsoft Office
program to edit the image and save it in the HTM format. So I go ahead and click on Yes,
that it could open up this program and we’re basically using Microsoft Word. So I’m going
to insert the file that we just created which is our business card, and I’m going to put
it in just like I would any file. And I go ahead find the JPEG image, I click on it,
click on insert, and here is our business card that we created. So I’m going to go ahead
and save. Now the image is going to be saved in the signatures directory on our hard drive
which is if we go here, we can see that it’s in the application data Microsoft folder and
we have signatures. So it’s automatically going inside our signatures folder which is
where it needs to be for the Outlook email program to pick it up. So I’m going to go
ahead and click on save. We see that the name is a .HTM file, so I’m going to go ahead and
click on save. And now I have I a business card HTM file in my signatures folder I’m
going to click on close. And now I see that my business card is selected and I see it
appears here. I?m going to click OK. And apply and OK again. And now when I create a new
email, we see that in my new email the business card is going to appear on the bottom on every
email that I send.
