Unsharp images in Marketing emailSOLVE
Aug 27, 2019 4:22 AM
I can't figure out how to get sharp images in my emails. I tried several things:
- Hi-res png's and jpegs (twice the size of the actual image in the newsletter)
- Image sizes that match the actual size in the newsletter
- Set image optimization to high
Some images look sharp in the editor, but when in preview mode it's al blurry. Same for test emails.
Thanks in advance!

Instead of uploading your images much larger than they are appearing, try uploading them closer to the size they are displaying. When an image is decreased or increased in size significantly, blurriness can occur.

None of the images in that email look bad to me. My only comment would be on the mobile view image because it is so zoomed out, having multiple screenshots may not be needed. The point could be conveyed simpler with a screenshot mounted on a iphone/android/generic phone background to show that it is mobile friendly on a mobile device
To Josh's point though, I agree that keeping the image as close to the size is better because Photoshop (or any image editor) will do a better job at optimization than Hubspot will. Images that are too small will blur as they grow, while images that are not proportional will show as distorted. If you had to make an image too large or small though, I would always say too large because at the right proportion, the image will be sharper, but most untrained eyes will not notice the difference, it will just mean larger file sizes to download the email.
