EMAIL LAYOUT

Hi, I create my own layouts (they are jpeg) that I want to send to my customers. How do I use my layout as the email without having to use one of CC's templates?

When you create an email, just under the list of Template Categories there is a link for "Use My Own Code".

There is no way to attach a file in Constant Contact. If you want to include an image, you will have to have the image hosted and incldue an HTML image tag.

With some HTML-code (aka "Use My Own Code") and the basic image hosting with up to 5 pictures in CC it should be possible to have your own picture as a background picture with your text on top of that. but be aware that most e-mail hosts and readers (outlook etc.) exempt pictures when showing emails unless the user ask to show pictures

FAQ 2455 might be helpful, "Can I create a single image or image-only email?" We did something similar with a big jpg and put it in the template called "Promotions - My Image 1", then deleted most of the other blocks. (An image-only email goes against some of the best practices espoused by Constant Contact - and probably other ESPs - but we needed to show our client we could duplicate what they were doing in Bronto.)
