TT – Editing Images for Email Templates



We’ve all done it. You create an awesome looking email template, send a test email to yourself, and suddenly the images have all changed size and position on the page.

This is down to a quirk of the way different email clients process images. Some, like Gmail, will happily use the size you’ve specified in the email code. Others, like Outlook, will only look at the actual size of the image.

The result? An email that only looks correct in certain email templates. But don’t worry, this video will show you how to edit images to be displayed correctly within email clients such as Outlook.

The image editing software used in the video is called Pixlr. If you’d like to try Pixlr for yourself, you can find it here.

There are lots of other tools out there that you can use those, including Photoshop and Canva. Why not let us know in the comments which image editor you prefer?
