Finding the Size of Your Images

Follow

In general, keep emails as light as possible – image-heavy emails are slow-loading and can burden mobile users.

To find the file size of the images in your email:

  • Open up a Firefox browser.  Go to the Email Homepage in Encompass and find your email on the Saved Drafts grid.  Beside the email select View Email from the dropdown.
  • Right click on the email and select View Page Info.
  • Select the Media tab.  On this tab you can see the sizes of all the images in your email.

Here is a video of how to do that http://screencast.com/t/nBMdFU8Lcma
