Can I embed images like my company Logo in PDF-eXPLODE’s HTML emails?
Yes you can embed images from your PC's hard drive into HTML emails.
In Version 126.96.36.199 (Feb 2014) onwards, PDF-eXPLODE has the capability to embed images like logos, in HTML emails, sent either via PDF-eXPLODE's SMTP or MAPI (MS Outlook) connection settings.
You can either create your HTML email message content with PDF-eXPLODE's HTML editor or your own preferred one. The image object must exist on any drive accessible by your PC at the time of sending emails. PDF-eXPLODE can size the email according to an HTML Width or Height (or both) command. The following instructions are based on the use of the PDF-eXPLODE HTML editor. To start the editor, open PDF-eXPLODE Options and depending on whether your email message is set up at Mail Settings or Message ID level, you will need to access this. Now check the checkbox - Send e-mails as HTML
MESSAGE ID :
Now click the Edit HTML File button to select an existing HTML file or create a new one. Once you nominate a file name and location, PDF-explode HTML editor will open , as below with an existing file or a blank screen for a new file:
PREVIEW (of screen code above) :
To insert a graphic into your message, place the cursor at the point of desired image insertion, then click on the Insert Image button on the button toolbar of the PDF-eXPLODE HTML Editor and complete the screen shown below.
<img src="F:\PDF1\Logos\PeX LOGO\logo.gif" Width="240" />
If you chose to explicitly restrict the Height and Width image dimensions, then you can do the following:
<img src="F:\PDF1\Logos\PeX LOGO\logo.gif" Width="240" Height="100" />
The image file name and path will be stored as text in the message. However at the time of sending, this will be converted into a graphic. Here is a sample HTML email created with the editor
* The image you choose can only be a JPG, GIF or BMP .
* Make sure the resolution of the graphic is NO MORE than 96 dpi (dots per inch) as higher graphics will not display nor embed.
* To check the resolution of the image, right click on the image file name and select PROPERTIES from the drop down menu,
search within the DETAILS tab of the PROPERTIES screen, for a horizontal and vertical resolution.
