Adding images to your messages

Learn how to add images to your emails through drag and drop, through links, how to add links to images, and host your own image.


If you'd like to include images to share visual content, personalize, or add branding to your email, read on to learn helpful tips around adding images in your email step. 

To add an image, open the email you want to add an image to and then click the … icon > Select the Add Image button.

From there, there are two ways to add images to your email:

  1. You can drag and drop the image into the editor or upload the file directly from your computer.
  2. You can host your image elsewhere/online and add the image's link in the Image URL field.

Adding images through drag and drop

You can select the "Upload" option to upload images directly from your computer. We recommend setting up branded domains if you upload images to ensure this doesn't affect your email deliverability.


You can add in an image through adding the image's URL. You'll need to make sure the image's URL ends in .png, .jpg, .jpeg, or .gif so it uploads correctly. 


Adding links to images

Images can be made clickable through adding links. To link an image, click on the image > Click the hyperlink icon > Enter the URL.

Once the URL is saved, the image will become clickable. 


How to host and add your own image

If you have this image hosted on your website already, you can reference the link from there. Please keep in mind that this link should end in .png, .jpg, .jpeg, .gif, etc. so the image can be added in properly.

It will look something like this:

If your image's link does not look like this, you will need to host the image somewhere else. We recommend using imgur to host those images reliably. You can refer to Imgur's help article to see what file types and size limits can be uploaded.

When you have successfully uploaded the image, you can copy and paste the direct imgur link. To ensure the image link works properly, the imagur image cannot be a gallery image. Gallery images will contain the word "gallery" in the imgur link (ie. https://imgur.com/gallery/RvKB7).

This is what the image URL should look like from imgur:

Resizing Images

We recommend resizing images outside of Interseller since there's not a built-in feature to resize them. Once the image has been resized, you can add the image into the sequence.


Understanding the pros & cons to images in email

  • Images may not be viewable by everyone since each email service is different. For example, Gmail will show it but Outlook will not.
  • Some anti-spam mail services may count your images against you which can ultimately lower deliverability rate

Note: Video thumbnail images can be added using video links if the video is hosted on YouTube, Loom, or Vidyard.
