Getting images to look as you want can be a challenge. We hope that the tips included in this tutorial may help solve some the more likely issues you may experience.
The first issue is to get the image in the correct format. The following formats are compatible with today’s web browsers:
- jpeg (jpg)
If your image is not one of the formats above we recommend using MS Paint (Windows 7 or higher) or any other decent graphics manipulation software, say GIMP, to “Save As” or “Export” to one of the image formats above.
The image you want to include in the email may not be the size you require. It is possible to scale the image after inserting it in the email (using the image properties in the email editor) however, this may cause the email to not appear correctly with some email clients, like Outlook.
We recommend that the image be re-sized using your preferred graphics software (eg MS Paint, or GIMP). This will then ensure that the image is displayed correctly in all email clients that support images.
