Composing an email in html that contains images is a simple process. Click here for more information on creating an HTML eblast.

There are a few things that need to be included to make the images work properly.

  1. First you create a simple HTML email.

    ensure you have the HEAD tags open and closed and HTML at the beginning and the end of the document.

    Note the URL for the graphic being included is fully qualified (the whole url for the graphic is entered in the the display image html tags).

    When I look at the email in the preview mode of my HTML tool, I can see it holds the image from the Arts Management website.

  2. Next I copy and past the HTML code into my Theatre Manager Eblast Form Letter.

  3. Click the Save button.
  4. Open the patron you are going to send the test email to.
  5. Click the New button.

    The letter / email flyout opens.

  6. Choose E-mail.

    The Form Letter List window opens.

  7. Select the correct eblast and click the Select button.

    You are returned to the Patron record.

  8. Highlight the eblast and click the Email Letter button.

    You can now switch to your email provider.

  9. The test Message arrives in my gmail box.

  10. When opened, it displays the email exactly as it was setup using the HTML Editor.
