In this article, you’ll learn how to wrap text around an image.

Before You Start

Here are some things to know before you begin this process.

  • To ensure your campaign displays as expected, use small images with a width of 100-300px.

  • In drag-and-drop templates, you can only wrap text around an image in Text, Boxed Text, or Footer content blocks. In custom HTML templates, an image can wrapped in any content block that includes an image and text.

  • Be sure to preview and test your email campaign after you wrap text around an image. Some email clients, like Outlook, handle text wrapping differently than other email clients.
