Email construction help please!
on Mar 8, 2007 at 11:32:50 am

Hello All :)

A friend of mine asked me how he would be able to send mass emails but not like your ordinary type. I'm not sure the correct name, but you've all received those emails that have a back image, nice font embedded in that image and surround images with links included in the piece..i guess something like an e-invite? Not sure, but I'd like to get some info up. I'm solid in Photoshop so would i be able to create the whole image there-with text then host in on a site and embed html into the email which would load up the hosted file?

Hope someone knows what i'm on about!

Thanks for your help

we've covered this issue often in the forum - try searching all posts for keywords like email and newsletter and you'll find a lot of info...

basically you are sending people an html file with references to images back on your server that their email client parses and shows. the two major issues are:

1. small file size (including downloaded graphics - should be less than 50Kb or so
2. only plain basic html - no flash, javascript, clients cannot parse stuff like that

hope that helps...
