Designing with images

Follow these rules for the use of images in your emails

Optimize your images – taking a few minutes to optimize your images (ie reduce them in file size) will improve your results. The images will download faster, more people will be able to see them, and your brand and message will be delivered quickly and reliably.

Use gifs for logos and Jpegs for images and pictures of things. And test your email – to ensure the graphics render in all the main email clients that your database contains, eg outlook express, outlook 2005, 2007, hotmail, yahoo, tiscalli etc

Remember also that you cannot attach any additional files to an email in nor can you add flash or forms within an email.
