It's no surprise that many people use tools like Canva or other design platforms, to create images and newsletters that look aesthetically pleasing, at which point they bring them into Constant Contact in order to email out.
My issue is, that on my Canva design, there are specific locations where I would like a clickable button/link to be located. I don't want the entire image to be hyperlinked... No. A SPECIFIC part of the image.
This is why being able to overlay an invisible button from CC, onto an image that's imported into CC, would be huge. Rather than having a separate button that's under, beside, or above my image, I could have the button overlayed ON TOP of the image, so that the button that I've created on my image becomes clickable.
I would want it to be almost like an invisible text box, that I could just drag on top of the image, so that I can then hyperlink the text box and simply place it over the 'button' that I've created in Canva.
Hi @SamM540 - I agree that this would lead to much more visually striking emails and would open up design possibilities! This is unfortunately one of those areas where what's possible on a webpage and what's possible (and recommended) for email tend to diverge. Emails tend to allow much more limited coding in order to stay consistent among a variety of email clients, which don't function the same as internet browsers. There are such things as "image maps" where you could have an image and give coordinates (almost like a latitude and longitude) of where links should be on that image. We don't recommend using them for a few reasons:
It's still a request we're tracking to just try to keep a pulse on things, and are happy to continue to track it via this post and hear others thoughts. We'll mark this as "Not Currently Planned" for right now just to be transparent, but I think the more use cases we can gather we can try to evolve the email designs as much as we're able to in order to reach that middle ground of making excellent designs and remaining consistent. I think you also brought up a really good point with the designer in Canva allowing so much freedom to make beautiful designs, it's difficult to bring that into an email when you expect it to function the same way.
