Images

The Images overview displays the following information:

  • Name. The file name.
  • URL. Where the image is stored. If it is physically uploaded to Episerver Campaign, the URL is an internal URL (http.//img.example.com/...). If you selected Use URL, the file's original URL is shown.
  • Width/Height. The image's dimensions (in pixels).
  • Location. Indicates whether the image is stored on Episerver Campaign (server) or located externally.
  • Preview. Shows a preview of the image (scaled down in most cases).

Attachments

The Attachment overview displays the following information:

  • Description. The attachment description.
  • File name. The file name.
  • URL. If you selected Use URL while importing the attachment, the file address appears. If the file was physically imported into Episerver Campaign, this field is empty.
  • Location. Indicates if the file is stored on the Episerver Campaign (server) or located externally.
  • Type. The file format (PDF, DOC and so on). This is the original file format as recognized by Episerver Campaign when the file was added, not the format you applied while naming it.

    Tip:  The type you apply to the file should match the original file, so as not to confuse the mailing recipient.

  • Size. The file size in bytes. Use discretion with the file size, so recipients are not annoyed by large attachments.
