Prevent automatic image sizing on mobile view

Please undo the automatic resizing/expanding of images in the mobile version. It was working fine before. We prefer to have control over whether the image stretches to the width of the page or not. Some images look terrible expanded, taking up 2/3 of the screen and rendering the text less significant.

We're updating the status of this idea to more accurately reflect its current status with our engineering team and also made slight changes to the subject line in order for it to be more easily found. We do not have any updates to share surrounding any changes to how images display on mobile devices but you can resize your larger images to appear smaller:

 

To resize an image:

  • Open the image editor
  • Select the Transform tool on the upper left
  • Check the checkbox marked Lock Resolution, on the lower left
  • Set the width to a smaller number, such as 200
  • Hit the Tab key on the keyboard. The Height number will change in response, to resize the image while keeping the original dimensions

There is also a Knowledge Base article that includes a visual walkthrough on resizing images for mobile devices.

I don't think there is really any "confusion"--at least not on the users' end. It's just that Constant Contact can't seem to understand that an image, for example a 150px wide button, should not be enlarged in mobile view to fill the mobile device width. Even if it wasn't just bulky and ugly in the layout, it gets blurry when enlarged that much. Same problem people have mentioned with thumbnail headshots. You need to allow us to specify a width for image in mobile view!
