03007 – How to setup an Image Block

The Image Block allows you to add images to your Campaign page.
Below is an overview of the various Image Block settings.

Image

Click on Browse to upload an image from your computer.
The max image file size can be 500kb.

When uploading an image, the original file name will be kept and a prefix will be added. This will help from an SEO perspective.
For example:
If you will upload an image called John.jpg, the image will be stored as 1234-John.jpg (1234 is the timestamp)
If you will upload an image with special characters on the filename, the image will be stored as %XX (XX are numbers e.g. # to %23)

OR, click Select from gallery if you want to use an image that’s already been uploaded or been used in another template or page. Once clicked, the image gallery popup window will appear with all the available images listed.
