Use Image + Caption Content Blocks

The Image + Caption content block allows you to add up to two images with captions to your campaign. Drag and drop the block into your layout and choose the images you want to share with your contacts.

In this article, you'll learn how to use the Image + Caption content block.

Before You Start

  • You can add as many Image + Caption content blocks as you need, but keep our image requirements in mind so your campaign displays as expected in recipients' inboxes.
  • When you upload an image to the Content Manager, we change the file name to a unique identifier that can't be duplicated or changed.
  • The Content Manager supports JPG, JPE, JPEG, GIF, PNG, and BMP image files.
  • To embed one or more images without captions, use an Image or Image Group content block. If you want a background behind your image and caption, use the Image Card content block.
