FAQ Friday- What size should my images be?

Inserting relevant images into your email template can help it stand out in a world full of crowded inboxes.  Adding images within Swiftpage is a very simple process, just make sure your images meet the below listed formatting guidelines before uploading them to your template.

The first thing to understand about images is their size. All images imported into Swiftpage must be no larger than 50 kb in file size, no higher than 72 dpi in resolution, and no wider than 580 pixels (in the case of a header image it can be 600 pixels). Upon uploading an image, Swiftpage will automatically compress your image. It is important to note that if your image is over any of these three levels, it may result in a loss of quality.

In the case that your file size, resolution, or width is larger than Swiftpage allows, you will need to reduce the image so it is within the parameters mentioned above. You should do this before you upload your image to protect its quality. You can change your image to the correct formatting specifications by using a program like Photoshop or Paint. We also recommend a free online service called, Sumo Paint- to learn more about it, click here. Once your image has been resized, you can easily upload it into your Swiftpage template and continue creating your email masterpiece.
