I'm acknowledging supporter by having their logo in our email. I need to be able to place 3 or more images side by side in the desktop view in the 3rd gen. Having only two per row makes the email too long visually AND long emails sometimes get clipped in gmail.
P.S. Not loving the limitations and missing features in the 3rd Gen (for example accessing HTML). It seems really dumbed down. More advanced users are losing the ability to truly customize their email campaigns.
Solved! Go to Solution.
At this time, we're unable to place three images next to each other in the new editor. To do so, we would need to create 3 columns or a table, which would break the mobile responsive functionality of these emails.
I would recommend placing the three logos side by side using an image editor, whic would create the same look. You are able to access Artworktool in your Constant Contact account, which has the capability of creating this type of image. You would place all three logos next to each other and save as one image.
I do apologize that the new editor doesn't have all of the functionalities as the previous. Our product team definitely wants to hear all of your feedback, so I will pass that along to them.
This will not work for me as each image needs to be individually linked. PLEASE bring back at least 3 columns to 3rd Gen!!
Thank you for the feedback! I can appreciate why this particular feature would be useful. I have created a case and tracked it in your account for our developers to see.
I am a new user with the same question. offered a 1:3 layout, where I could put three individually linked images in the layout. It does not seem to be possible in Constant Contact.
Have there been any updates to this issue?
Great question! The good news is you can definitely place as many separately linked images in your email as you need. How ever if you are looking to place more than two images side by side, you are correct unfortunately this is not a feature we currently have. I can understand why you would like this feature in your emails. I would be more than happy to pass your feedback and track this request it in your account.
I would also like to suggest that this feature is added back in. I need to be able to place 3 images in a row next to each other, but be able to individually link them. It's quite frustrating that this functionality is no longer available.
Hello @GreenheartExchange. At this time, we are not able to have three images in a row appear in your email using the third-generation editor but I can certainly understand why you would like this feature. We can absolutely track this feedback in your account and send it over to the appropriate team.
UPDATED: October 2018
Hello @naturalresources @GreenheartExchange and @NeeleyS! I wanted to update you on the status of being able to insert five images next to each other. I'm happy to let you know that our third-generation editor now has a 5-column block that you can insert into your campaigns!
Just a few notes about this new feature:
We're so excited to announce this new feature and just had to let you know! Let us know if you have any questions.
I also feel that this new system is a little limiting for those who are "power users" and have some HTML knowledge. I'm struggling because I need 4 images in a row to recreate our current newsletter design. It would be nice if the columns weren't restricted and in the row using the drag and drop build items. Or give an HTML box build item so we can add code to make the row function as we need to.
