Help! How do I place two separate photos, with text under each one, into one of constant contacts templates? Note: I do not want to use a newsletter template.
Thanks for any help,

When creating an email in our 2GE, you can add a customizable table into a block to put images and even text side by side. Tables also help space your content evenly for a clean look. You can also check out this FAQ on setting up your images for success.
Click the Edit this block icon to open the block editor.
Place your cursor in each cell and add text, images, or links.
Note: If you need to delete rows or columns, click the gear and place your cursor over the rows section.
Click Save to continue editing the rest of your email.
You can place a caption under those images by:
For 3GE users:
It's easy to work with images in your Email campaign or Coupon landing page using the drag-and-drop feature in our third-generation editor.
After you've uploaded images to your Library, you can insert them into your Email campaign or Coupon.
Note: If you're already working in your Email or Coupon landing page and haven't added images to your Library yet, follow the steps to change an image and you'll be able to upload without leaving the editor.
Tip: All of the build elements (images, buttons, spacers, etc...) can be added into a dual-column layout or used to create a dual-column layout by dropping them next to an existing build element.
Thank you for your response. Unfortunately, no matter how small I make my pictures, the larger dotted box around the picture and caption will not shrink as well. Because of this, my pictures are still remaining one on top of the other. I appreciate your help, but I still have an issue.
If you would like, we could take a look at the email and see what else we can do. If we have your permission to access your account, please let us know what the name of the email is and we may be able to create a table in the block which should help.
I too have noted that placing images side-by-side in a block is sometimes an issue, as well as adding a second image elsewhere in the block and having text wrap around it. What is the trick?
Have you tried following the steps I posted above? Adding your first image and then immediately afterward adding your second? Another tip is to take your images to www.picnik.com and use their editor to create a collage. This will allow you to take both images and combine them into one.
I hope this helps,
My issue is related to this. I want to add 2 images to 1 image block, side by side, and have each linked to a different URL. No matter what I try, the images end up one on top of the other instead of next to each other. Help?
It's very possible that the 2 images you're trying to add side by side are too wide for the block. To find out the width of your block, you would want to click on Advanced Features > Edit Style Sheet on the left.
Then scroll down to the bottom and you should see something like this:
If you're trying to add an image on say the left, in this instance, your two images should be no wider than 205px and if on the right, no wider than 350.
If your 2 images are wider than the px width listed under StyleSheet, it will stretch out the block or it will make the image go to the next line down.
I hope that helps!
I'm trying to put 3 clickable icons next to each other on the top bar.. my top bar is actually on the bottom. Im using the music newsletter with the guitar on it...
anyone know how to do it? when I add the one it works, but when I add the second it puts it under the other one and not next to it.
I would use tables. This way you can insert 3 tables side by side and insert your images in each one.
Here is a video I made to show you how you can insert tables into your email. Let me know if that doesn't work for you!
