How To Insert An Image Using the Drag-N-Drop Editor
While you are in the drag-n-drop editor, click on the 'Elements' link in the vertical menu on the left. Then click on the 'Image' box and drag it to the location where you would like to place your image.
Next, double-click on the grey image placement box. This will bring up new options on the left.
Click the 'Upload Image' (or alternatively 'Link to Image' if you have a URL).Upload a new image by dragging it into the image box or double clicking in it to load a file. Once you find the image (or have uploaded it), click on the 'Select' button underneath it. This will place you image in your campaign.
Always use alternative text - make sure it explains what the image is. If the alt text is too long, it won't render.
- Make your image files as small as possible so they render quickly and don't set off any spam flags. The smaller your image size, the better. You can use sites like tinypng.com and www.jpegmini.com to quickly reduce your file sizes.
