Portrait images appear far too large on smart phones

Portrait images appear far too large on smart phones

I'm a new user to CC and have run into an issue with adding portrait images to mailshots; when viewed on a smartphone the image is far too large. It appears that the formatting uses the full width of the image. I've also noted that if you have two images side-by-side, on a smartphone this formatting is lost and they are shown one above the other. Is there a fix for this?

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: Portrait images appear far too large on smart phones

Hello @user32989 ,

 

Mobile email apps are coded to always try and display an image at its native size, as well as rearra.... Therefore an image that is normally 100x800 before being put into our editor, will try to display as such on a mobile device (you can regularly check this in Preview while editing your email). This is standard practice across the industry, and helps to ensure high deliverability rates, which is why it's important to make sure your email looks good on mobile as well as on desktop.

The image looks fine in landscape so I don't understand why this can't be applied to portrait.  I use the resize tool within constant contact and image appears small.  Since landscape does oblige to this - this seems like a bug.

Hello @OwenK46,

 

I do apologize for the inconvenience, but the way your email is displaying is functioning as designed when your images resize to fit the device. I will make sure to submit your feedback, and we appreciate the input. Thank you!
