To create an optimal image follow the steps below:

  1. First, use the image format photo below and to choose whether you would like to create a portrait, square, or landscape MMS image.

  2. Once you've decided on the image size, use the image specifications table below to discover what dimensions you need to create your desired image. For example, to create a square image, use the dimensions, 1080px x 1080px.

  3. Then, use the safe zone specification table to make sure your important information won't be cropped when your subscribers receive the image.

  4. Once the image is created, make sure the file format is .JPG and less than 500 KB.

  5. Test your image before sending it to your list.

It's important to note that on the iPhone when a static image is delivered, it's shown to the recipient in preview mode. This mode "previews" the image and as a result, crops the image. It's because of this that we recommend that you don't put any "content of interest" in the top, bottom, and side areas as specified above.
