Humans are visual creatures, and the right images can make your emails stand out. While you don’t want to overwhelm your audience with too much visual stimulation, adding eye-catching graphics or engaging photos can significantly enhance the appeal of your emails.

 

Why is the quality of my image files important?

 

Creating visually appealing email campaigns is crucial for engaging your audience effectively. To ensure your images are clear and attractive, it's important to understand the basics of image formatting and the tools available for optimizing your graphics.

 

How do I prepare my images for upload?

 

There are some key factors to keep in mind when reviewing whether your images are ready for upload or not:

 

  • Size and Resolution: Ensure your images are at least 600px wide to match the width of most Constant Contact emails. This prevents the images from becoming blurry when resized.
  • File Type and Size: Check the file type (JPEG, PNG, etc.) and keep the file size manageable to ensure quick loading times without sacrificing quality. 
  • Use Editing Tools: Both Windows and macOS offer built-in tools for basic image editing. Use these tools to adjust the size, resolution, and format of your images according to your needs.
  • Study design principles: Check out our article on design best practices so you can attract the right attention from your audience.
