Hi,

I have jpeg/gif ads that I created and I want to send them out as email blasts from my private email. I have no experience in dreamweaver, but I would like someone to give me step by step instructions how to go about importing my jpeg/gif to dreamweaver, coding it correctly, and exporting it properly so that when used in my email it hyperlinks to my website.

 

Thank you!

What you are asking for goes beyond the parameters of this forum. If you need step by step instructions, then get yourself a qualified instructor or institution. 

 

Sorry to be blunt, but that is what old geizers do.

#1 Email is not the same as creating a web site.  Dreamweaver is web authoring software, not e-mail creation software.

 

#2 Many people disable images for security reasons.  A large % of your email list will never see those images. 

 

#3 You must host images on a public facing web server and reference them with an absolute URL in your markup. 

 

LINKED IMAGE CODE.

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<title>EMAIL EXAMPLE</title>
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1"><meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">
</head>
<body>
<a href="https://example.com/my_newsletter.html"><img src="https://dummyimage.com/300x300" alt="brief image description">Link to the online newsletter.</a>
</body>
</html>


RESULT:

A bit dated but most of the information is still relevant today.

You could just sign up for a free mailchimp account or a similar service to be able to send out your emails.  That is the better way.  Of course you want to make sure your list is opt-in so you don't end up with issues, but those are a better path to go down then to try and learn to code HTML emails manually or send it from Outlook or something that won't support your code.
