How to Add Images to Emails

QuickMail’s email editor allows adding of images to the email body.

However, Quickmail doesn’t host files, so you need to host the files on a publicly accessible server. This can be your own website or file host.

Simply upload the image files (jpg, png, gif) to your file/image host then get the image URL of the image you uploaded (direct/public link).
Example:
https://quickmail.io/wp-content/uploads/quickmail_logo.png (hosted on Quickmail blog website)

Once you have the image URLs, you can add the images to your email touches.
There are also free image hosting websites out there to choose from but this should only be considered as a last resort, like imgur.com

Adding images:

In the email editor click the “insert image” button. 
A dialogue box will ask you for the image URL. Paste the image URL in the box then hit OK.

You should see the image in the body of the editor after that.



You can also add images using the HTML editor. 

While editing the email, click "</>" to switch to HTML editor. 
Then insert this line: <p><img src=" (image url goes here)"></p>

If you want to link the image (creating a button): <a href=" (link URL goes here)" target="_blank"><img src="(image url goes here)"></a>

Here's a sample sequence with images ->  Link

Bonus Trick:

You can use custom attributes to personalize images for each prospect. 

1. Go to Prospects -> Attributes -> Create a custom attribute and name it "customimage" (or any name you prefer)

2. Edit/create an email variation and click the "insert image" button. 
When it asks for an image url, paste/type your custom attribute {{prospect.customimage}}. -> Save

You can also use the HTML editor (click "</>") then insert a line like this:
<img src="{{prospect.customimage}}">

Another way is to use the custom attribute for the dynamic part of the image url: 
Example: <img src="https://myserver.com/something/{{prospect.picture_id}}"> 
<img src="https://myserver.com/img_{{prospect.picture_id}}.png"> 
or <img src="https://myserver.com?img={{prospect.picture_id}}">...


3. Now you can view each of your prospects and you will see a custom field for "customimage".
you can paste an image url in that field and that image will show to the prospect when he receives the email variation that you edited in step #2.

Note: If you leave the custom attribute blank, no image will show up for that line.
If you have a default image value for the custom attribute, the default image will show up for prospects without any custom attribute value.


4. You can import (or re-import) prospects to your list with a "customimage" header/column and you can add the image URLs for each prospect. (so you can easily match the custom attribute you created with the spreadsheet header)

If you're re-importing/updating prospects, you need to tick "update existing prospects" to update the prospect records:

You can send yourself test emails to confirm that it's working by clicking "Send Test Emails" under Sequence Menu.
