There are two ways to add images into your emails.
First, 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:
- If you are using branded domains, you can drag and drop the image into the editor or upload the file directly from your computer.
- If you are not using branded domains, you will need to host your image elsewhere and link to it.
Adding images through drag and drop
This option only appears if you're on branded domains.
Adding images through links
If you're not on branded domains, you'll only see the option to add in the image 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:
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.
