You can have more control over the images you use on an email signature with Bybrand Assets. The main features are:
- Preventing an image in use from being deleted;
- Change the contents of an image;
We recommend you read a little more about Bybrand Assets in our released statement, where we have a presentation that contributes to this tutorial.

- Adding watermarks as special celebrations;
This modification does not work for icons unless you have them in your account. That could be a good idea!

Note about image caching
When you change the content of an image, the new one might not be instantaneously shown because of the
