I'm acknowledging supporter by having their logo in our email. I need to be able to place 3 or more images side by side in the desktop view in the 3rd gen. Having only two per row makes the email too long visually AND long emails sometimes get clipped in gmail.
P.S. Not loving the limitations and missing features in the 3rd Gen (for example accessing HTML). It seems really dumbed down. More advanced users are losing the ability to truly customize their email campaigns.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Hello @naturalresources @GreenheartExchange and @NeeleyS! I wanted to update you on the status of being able to insert five images next to each other. I'm happy to let you know that our third-generation editor now has a 5-column block that you can insert into your campaigns!
Just a few notes about this new feature:
We're so excited to announce this new feature and just had to let you know! Let us know if you have any questions.
Hi, While the 3 column block is great for desktop view, it does seem to break up in the mobile view - what can I do about that?
Thank you for contacting us today. The columns in the 3G editor are designed to stack on top of each other to maximize readability on a mobile device. In this case, to keep all three images together regardless of format, you would need to place all three images in a single image. I will absolutely pass along feedback to the appropriate teams on this!
This is a partial solution. The 5 column drag and drop still creates five distinct columns. If the images are small they are spaced too far apart.
You need to incorporate a solution that allows one to place as many smaller images, side-by-side, centered, in one block (without creating columns for each image).
It's great that you're builder creates emails that are responsive but having multiple (small) images centered in one block isn't counter intuitive to that, the images would just naturally rap if the container width is forced narrower.
If there's presently a workaround for this I'd like to know, but it doesn't look like that's the case.
The five image option will be under Build and then Layouts on the left hand side when creating your email. The block with five image placement options will look like five links in a row next to each other. Click on this helpful article for a visual representation. Thanks!
There's a layout block with 5 slots that you can insert text, drag and attach image blocks to, and link up as needed.
I'm creating a newsletter but I can't find the 5 pictures feature even on a new template.
Could you recommend me a template where this feature is available?
Hello @RMFACC ,
The 5-column layout (and 4 column technically once you delete one of them) will display as 5 hyperlink icons:
Even though it initially displays with text/ hyperlink placeholders, with the columns now setup you can drag over other basic blocks to add to those columns, such as image blocks. Make sure to check out our article on multi-column layout blocks for more info on adding, arranging, and managing these block types.
Thank very much for your reply. Unfortunately, I was asking about the 5 pictures feature @Caitlin_M was talking about. The hyperlink option doesn't allow us to add pictures in the block.
Let me know if you have a solution to find the % picture column option.
Hi @RMFACC ,
The image in Caitlin's post is from the old 3ge builder. The image I provided is how it will appear in the CPE builder, and when you add that layout block, you can drag over image blocks to place in those slots that the hyperlinks take up.
You could use in-line css in the Advanced Editor to place your 3 pics anywhere you want them. Or you could put it in the header and use it in a template.
Hello @HillsboroParksandRecreation and @MikeC0650. It looks like you were using a cross-platform editor that is still having features added to it. While there isn't a specific five photo layout available, you can use the Navigation Bar layout and drag an image block above each column to create a multiple photo layout.
