Adding Images to Emails

 

Various images can be used for your Act-On Messages, Forms, and Landing Pages. Images could be button images, social media images, header images, and banner images. Images allow you to customize the branding of your Act-On marketing materials.

 You can insert an image into the Rich Text Block using your choice of 2 methods. Either through the Act-On Image Library, or by linking to the image file. To insert an image from the Act-On Image Library, you must first upload images to the library.

  1. Click Content, and select Images.
  2. Click Actions Upload Images.
  3. Click Choose File, and locate the individual file.
  4. Select the folder using the drop-down menu.
  5. Enter a Name (optional).
  6. Click the Choose File button for each additional individual file.
  7. Below is a list of acceptable file formats for images that can be used for messages:
    • JPG
    • GIF
    • PNG
  8. Click Add if you will be uploading more than three (3) individual files, and follow steps 3 - 5 above.
