Are you ready for this?

You asked for it, and here it is! (… drumroll, please …) 🥁🥁🥁

Our new image editor tool!

Read all about it in our March updates.

Edit Images Directly in Our Software

Many of our customers use images in their email campaigns. One of the key newsletter design tips we always share with our customers is to balance text and image. You don’t want to overwhelm your subscribers with too much content or too many images.

But sometimes a photo you uploaded needs a little help to make it pop in your email campaign. Does the image take up too much space and dwarf your text? Or do you want to re-center it? Crop off an inconvenient trash bin?

Now you can handle all these things directly in our software without having to touch up the image and re-upload it.

But that’s not all our image editor tool can do.

Want to place a text over your image? Or a filter?

Yep, it can do that, too.

Last summer we added an Unsplash integration, which lets you select and use images from a gallery of professional, royalty-free photographs.

With the image editor, we’ve leveled up even more. Now you can edit your own photos directly in our software.

👉 How to use the image editor

  • Drag and drop the image building block in your campaign as you usually do
  • Select the uploaded photo you want to use
  • Click on the magic wand symbol for Edit Image in the black pop-up bar
  • A new pop-up will open with editing options
  • Edit the photo (see photo editing options below)
  • When you’re done, click Export and choose a new name for that image. Note: If you click on Close your changes won’t be saved!
  • If it doesn’t load automatically, you can find the new image in the media library tab and drag it into your campaign

Photo Editing Options

Transform (crop): This tab allows you to crop your image to the desired size. You can select one of the suggested cropping ratios or do a custom crop.

Filters: In this tab you’ll find a range of attractive filters for changing the overall look of the image. With the slider that appears over the filtered image, you can make the filter stronger or weaker.

Text: Go to this tab if you want to insert text over your image. You have 14 different fonts to choose from. The font and background colors are also adjustable. The text field itself can also be dragged to reposition it wherever you’d like.

Text Design: These are predesigned blocks of text, usually combining two complementary fonts.

When you’re satisfied with your image, remember to click Export to save the finished image in your media library.

💡 Note: The photo editor feature is currently only available with images uploaded to your media library. Photos from the Unsplash gallery cannot be edited directly. However, you can first save the Unsplash images to your desktop, then upload them and edit them in the media library.

Campaign Templates for Easter

In some industries, Easter and spring break email campaigns generate huge seasonal revenue. Food and meal delivery services, candy, toys, restaurants, travel agencies, hotels – all of these sectors profit immensely from this time of year. For those customers in the Standard plan and up, we now have two new ready-to-go Easter-themed templates. These can be easily adjusted however you’d like.

They work well for e-commerce sales campaigns as well as for a springtime newsletter to strengthen customer loyalty.
