Placing two pictures side - by - side in a template

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,

Hi Jeannie,

 

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.

Image side by side

 

  1.  Place your cursor where you would like to add the table and click Insert a new table.

  2.  Place your cursor over the grid to highlight the number of columns and rows for your table and then click the grid to insert the table. Don't forget to include a row for the table's header!

Place your cursor in each cell and add text, images, or links.

  1. (Optional) Place your cursor over the table and click the gear icon to make additional changes to the table formatting or colors.

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:

  1. Click the Edit icon Imagefor the block where the image appears.
  2. Right-click (Mac users Ctrl-click) on the image and select Add Caption.
  3. Below the image, the words "Type caption text here." will display.
  4. Put your cursor in that text area. Delete the existing text and type your caption.
    • You can format the text using the text formatting options that appear in the block.
    • There is no character limit for the caption. The text will extend as wide as the image and will wrap to the next line if necessary.
  5. When you have finished creating your caption, click Save.

    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.

    1. Click on the Build tab and find the image layout you want to use.  Drag a build layout into the template. Use the guidelines to help you find the right placement then release your mouse button to drop the content block or layout into place.

    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.


    I hope this helps,

Side by side buttons

First, I will admit that I am a noob. 

 

Is it possible to have two buttons side by side in an email? 

 

For example,

I cannot find a Block that will allow me to do that.

 

Thank you in advanced.

The easiest way to do this would be to insert them in a table.

Re: Side by side buttons

Hi @TimF4174,

@Clique_Marketing is totally right, a table would be the easiest solution. First, you will want to have the buttons created as images so we can link them. 

Once the images are uploaded, click to edit the block where you want to insert them. On the toolbar use the table button and choose the row/column number you need!

Once the table is in the block you can click into each cell to add the images.

Where is the table feature with the new interface?

Re: Side by side buttons

Hello @FMMAFCO. Great question. With the new interface, there isn't a table feature but there is still a way that we can get buttons side by side. Take a look at the video below to see how this is something you can put into your emails.

@Caitlin_M How would you go about lining up more than two buttons in one line? I can't seem to fit more than two before it bumps me down to a second row of buttons. I am looking to create almost a tool bar of options at the top of my email template that includes more than 4 buttons on one line. 

 

Thanks!

Re: Side by side buttons

Hello @LindsayG1,

 

I can definitely envision how you want to set up the buttons and why that would look great. At this time we only allow two buttons (or text blocks or images) side-by-side in the editor. This is valuable feedback for our developers and I will make sure to track it in your account so they can review it as a possible addition in the product down the road.
