Uploading and inserting images in Builder
Litmus Builder allows you to upload images to include in your email while you're building and testing in Litmus. Images uploaded to Builder should only be used for testing purposes. We strongly recommend hosting your own images either on your own dedicated server or through your own Email Service Provider before you send your email.
Uploading an image
To upload an image, click Insert and then click Image. This will open the Insert panel in Builder. To upload your image, click Upload image and either drag your image file(s) onto the upload dialog or click Browse to find a file on your computer. You can upload multiple images at once.
Note: Images are only uploaded to the email you are working on. If you want to reuse these images in another email, you will need to upload them again in that email.
Deleting an image
To delete an image, open the Insert panel by clicking Insert > Image, find the image you want to delete in the list, hover over it and click on the trashcan icon.
Inserting an image
To insert an image you've uploaded, click on the Insert menu and click Image. This will open the Insert panel in Builder and display a list of your uploaded images, ordered alphabetically. You can search your images using the search input at the top of the list.
When you've found the image you want to insert, hover over it and click Insert. This will insert the image in the location of your cursor with a basic HTML image container. The HTML code for the image container defines the source, height, and width of an image. Here is an example:
<code><img src="example.jpg" width="250" height="100" />
Optionally, you can click Copy filename to copy the image fliename to your clipboard, then paste it into the src attribute of an image container already in your email code.
Note: the code editor uses relative paths when referring to images uploaded into Builder. You will need to update your image links with absolute paths to where they are hosted in order for your images to render correctly in your final email.
All images to uploaded to Builder are hosted on a dedicated Amazon S3 server. Images uploaded to Builder should only be used in Builder for testing purposes. We strongly recommend hosting your own images either on your own dedicated server or through your own Email Service Provider for your final email.
