Give your AOL Mail email signature a personal touch by inserting an image with the "Add an image" option. All you need is the image URL (its publicly accessible web address that begins with https:// or http://), and to make sure the image is one you own or that is free for public use, and not a copyrighted image.

Add an image to your signature

First, copy the image's URL and have it handy. Image hosting services usually provide a "copy link" or "share image" feature that gives you the image's URL. If you can't find this, try right-clicking on the image (Control + click on a Mac) and choosing Copy image address or Copy image location.

If your copyright-free image is already available online and you have documented permission or a license from the image owner to use it, you can often copy the image's URL by right-clicking on the image in your web browser (or using Control + click on a Mac) and choosing Copy image address or Copy image location.

Image hosting services

If you have a copyright-free image saved on your computer or mobile device that you'd like to use, you'll need to upload and host the image online at a publicly accessible URL first, then copy its URL.

There are many image hosting services available online that allow you to upload and host images, including imgur, Flickr, imgBB and more.

While the above services are listed as examples, this should not be considered an endorsement or recommendation for the service. It's your responsibility to research and verify the image hosting service you use, and to find out if the service is free or paid.

Please visit the help site of the image hosting service you use for help documentation about uploading images and setting viewing permissions.

Image of the 'We can't find or access the image at that URL' error.

If you see this error when you add an image URL for your signature, the image may not be publicly accessible, which means you may only be able to see it when signed into a certain site, or the image viewing permissions are restricted or private, and not public.

If you receive the "We can't find or access the image at that URL" error when using the publicly accessible link provided by an image hosting service, and you've confirmed you're able to open the image at that URL when you aren't signed in to the hosting service, try this:

  1. Right-click on the image (use Control + click on a Mac).
  2. Choose Copy Image Address or Copy Image Location.
  3. Paste the new URL into the image URL field.

Alternatively:

  1. Right-click on the image (use Control + click on a Mac).
  2. Choose Open Image in New Tab.
  3. Copy the image URL from the address bar at the top of your browser screen.
  4. Paste the new URL into the image URL field.

In both cases, the image URL should be different from the one you previously used.
