Hi @GaryS1 

 

I apologize you're having this experience with your image resizing on a mobile device. Although the logo in your email was resized to appear smaller, it was uploaded at around 550px wide. This upload size causes it to display larger on a mobile device. Our templates are mobile responsive, and are designed to resize and display full width on a mobile device. To have your image display the way you would like it to, we suggest resizing it outside of our program to have a smaller width and re-uploaded into your account.

 

I do also want to make aware all feedback is read by Constant Contact employees. While there may not be a response for every comment – it is acknowledged. So thank you for sharing your feedback on this! Though this is functioning as designed, I have submitted this feedback to our Product team in the event that there is any change in the future.

Hi CindyB06,

Being as there's currently no way to edit just the mobile version, it won't help specifically with that, but our webinar series covers tips and best practices for optimizing your campaigns, and for mobile as well.

We also offer a period at the end, where registrants can ask their questions and receive one on one help if needed!

Re: Edit mobile view

I have struggled with this too and it is seriously frustrating. Mobile e-mail is the majority of how our clients open them and they look terrible with huge images in them. This should be a priority for constant contact to adjust!!!!

Re: Edit mobile view

I just figured this out; was having same issue. Use CC photo editor and resize to 150w (be sure you lock resolution first). When I viewed the image in mobile view after doing this, it was smaller with a nice amount of white space on either side.

Hi @KarynP0

 

Thanks for joining us in the Community and sharing your experiences with updating the image in our image editor. This can certainly work overall provided you have a smaller width, but as an alternative it can be helpful to update the image size outside of Constant Contact by reducing it to less than 200px wide(as you did here with resizing to 150ppx) and re-uploading it. This way, it appears smaller on a mobile device.

Re: Edit mobile view

Unfortunately, when you reduce the image to that size and then place it in the email, it loses definition. So I don't find this to be a solution. I would be really useful Constant Contact could provide some guidelines for the folks who are not using an agency to do their designs and are still struggling.

Hi @CindyB06 

 

Thank you for sharing your feedback on this experience as well. I apologize if the workaround we recommend is not the solution you were looking for. We are however always open to ways we can better our user's experience and would like to collect a few details from you:

 

  • Are you not expecting the image to fill the whole width of the mobile device?
  • Would the you want the image to remain the same size as in the editor/desktop preview?
  • Do you want to set a specific width and height to the image for being viewed on a mobile device only?

Re: Edit mobile view

I have to agree that the mobile conversion of my constant contact emails is absurd. The fact that you cannot edit/adjust the mobile view is also, at this point, in 2020, completely unacceptable if you want an adequate email marketing software/provider. I am searching for a different platform -- anyone have recommendations?

Hello @BrendaB23,

 

Thank you for much for your feedback we do really appreciate it! The solution is to update the image size outside of Constant Contact by reducing it to less than 200px wide and re-uploading it. This way, it appears smaller on a mobile device.
