It seems no matter what file type I try even bmp and all the 96dpi formulatic solution I try to affix on my logo for email signatures in Outlook; whether I insert the logo as Link to file or upload from local, I can view the image fine CRISP and clean but once Outlook grabs it and somehow "transcodes" it into a native JPG, my logo becomes blurry and crappy/ degraded/ crunched looking

Please help me insert my tiny logo image into the Signature and disable Outlook from modifying it on import.

I suggest you crop your signature into something smaller that looks good to you so that Outlook does not squish it for you.

I am not sure off hand the dimensions and I will look for such. But just try smaller.

If that is the only image, why not just type it out and change the font and color to match the one in the image?

so what I came to learn for certain even "from" Microsoft so called MVP experts is that there is a Word 'stub' application for text editing in Outlook that is a cornerstone element of Word 3.0 which still persists in Win10 Outlook 2016 when you edit signatures... OMG right, anyways this image import tries to "optimize" images and blurs them out ... its not a matter of size.. that is not a clean solution that's a patch.. if your brand has a proprietary typeface you cant just go "write it in another font" .. Public relations would bark at anyone in a big enterprise that tried that ...  there I no solution if you have a signature uploaded into Outlook Desktop.. O365 works fine but not local system application of Outlook ... the best image Ive gotten to work is 24bit PNG w/ transparency so there is no other information to dither into... its simply hit and miss... hth
I'm having the same issue. Please help me have a good quality tiny signature in my outlook.
