I am trying to import my own HTML template - which works for all the text and fields but - I have uploaded the 5 praphics to Constant Contact used in my HTML - but when I preview the graphics dont show (get that little red X thing - any clues?
Yes, you will need to re-insert your graphics from the CC graphics system (undoubtedly your HTML is set to use the graphics from a local directory). You should also check FAQ 1984 for more information.
Hi, I'm no wizard at HTML and I was very furstrated with what both CC and outlook do to HTMl e-mails so I simplified: I do my layout in Adobe illustrator, export to 3-5 big jpegs, and stack them on top of each other. Problem solved! paste below to see what I'm talking about: http://campaign.constantcontact.com/render?v=001aqj1QInodGRhPPT5dW0PiIMvSrzrpwWos2xHl7MT3ALVdLeBVt--CNwW8cGnclcyp-XCcCn9OiO6ZUu6RU2CSJaZ3gjvAX-OlBbDnBz1m9f9lj9q8CSFv7D1RTlYCwtKS8Qe4Z1z_VrT65GNk1ukpJr1xB6BX0kSFW3ZnQKdI7ox-XVZrIgGuLnqhw_p-KXzHcMeOdF8JG8i4IdjWDkMu8xKbzQaj17H9HjLA8uzP8XZQX6qmoIBHamwqgHsZRh80VL-mA_9F_PBPNbxmuJHVJIHwPE3wjBr1qXQZ5wSY9ILJIoQaDFbN-KDyziv8bkJyHINedmgUaViAsOSgEVBn01cNmZkVHNy This is by no means a "pro" solution, but it has really simplified and streamlined my e-mailing process. Best yet, the power of a graphics program is lightyears beyond the CSS/html that I can barely grasp. Cheers, Andrew
Andrew, Have you tested what your newsletter looks like in a variety of email clients like Outlook, hotmail or gmail? I did some testing a while ago with graphic only options and found more that 50% couldn't even be seen because clients were blocking the graphics or assuming that graphic only payloads were SPAM. In response to the original poster, I can't see why the 1x1 pixel is moving the page down one entire inch. That function can't be removed as it is critical to the statistics gathering function of CC.
