Newsletter - Placing pictures next to each other (beginner)

SOLVE

Hi, I'm really sorry if this is an obvious question, but I struggled for 3 days now trying to place pictures next to eachother in the newsletter. Instead of picture box after picture box underneath eachother. They are all upright and not very big, so it doesn't look great at all to have a tiny picture in the middle, and another one right underneath,

 

Thanks so much in advance for any advise,

 

Jana

Hi @janath ,

 

Ah you're using the drag and drop editor. I didn't know. That's the reason you can't add a table. You can use it in the classic editor. But in this case I would recommend to change/add the right the lay-out and add images in there:

Then they should be aligned if you make sure they're the same size.

 

Good luck with finishing your email!

Hi Janath,

 

Have you tried to use a rich text field with a table to put images in, in stead of image modules? You could try replace the image module with a rich text and then add the table in the email editor (in stead of the Design Manager). 

 

When editing the email, use the table to put the images side by side. Place them in different cells to make alignment easier.

 

Hope this helps!

 

 

Kind regards,

 

Hope this

Dear Nynke_HM,

 

thanks so much for taking the time to reply.

 

Seems like a good idea, i'm just not sure how to insert the image into a text field / add a table in the text field to add images? if you have any hints they would be most welcome.

 

Thanks again, Jana

Hello Nynka, thank you so much for taking the time to write such a detailed explanation, you're very kind and it is most helpful. I'm really just starting out and am perhaps a bit dense with this... I added a text module (from the left content side) , but don't see the options your screenshots are showing for adding a table. It's showing the options for adjusting the font, and adding in emojis or personalized tokens, but not adding in a table.

Does this perhaps have to do with that i'm not seeing options for rich text / HTML /  Plain text on top, as your screenshot is showing?

I'm feeling rather stupid, but just tried for half an hour and can't make it work!

@Nynke_HM  here is a screenshot. It's in German, but you get the idea. Not sure how I get to the option you described 😞
