Hi there,

I am fairly new to Dreamweaver. I am using one of the email templates. I can format and make everything appear when I paste it into my email, except images! I have read that the images need to be located on the internet somewhere, so they appear when the recipient opens their email. I have tried a couple of places like Google Photos, entered the link, but still nothing. Is there some other type of website I should be using?

Also, when entering the location of the photo in DW, where should that be done? Through the code? Or when I double click the photo where the window populates and lists file name and location?

I have looked online at tutorials, but no one really explains where to house there online photos.

If anyone can help, it would be really appreciated. I am wanting to send these from Gmail and have an HTML code input program that is translating what I am building in Dreamweaver. Absolutely everything else is working for me, except images. Again, I am super green with this program, so detailed advice would be best, or links to a tutorial. I am willing to try anything. Thank you!

Upload images to your website's remote server and use absolute URLs in the HTML code.

<img src="https://example.com/images/your_image.jpg" alt="description">

That said, many e-mail clients don't display images for security reasons.  For best results, communicate your message with words and don't rely too much on images because a lot of people will never see them.

I forgot to mention one other thing.  Some e-mail clients don't support HTML code.  So your e-mail should contain a link to an actual web page that recipients can read online.
