In drop & drag text box, I want to add images (call to action buttons) after paragraphs. I'm not seeing a way to add an image inside a text block?

Great question, Melissa! The only layout blocks that allow both an image and text are the left and right combo block options. Those give you the options of having an image on either the right or the left of the box, with the text wrapping around the image.

If you're looking to insert your call to action button after a paragraph, you'll want to just insert those as two separate layout elements -- a text block with a separate image block dropped below it.

Please let me know if you have further questions on this. If you'd like to share your username and the name of the campaign you're working on, I'm happy to hop into your account and see if I have some more specific suggestions on how to best achieve your desired layout.

You should make it possible to insert more than one image in the right and left combo blocks. I also would like to have both an image and a button in the same block, not below it.

A great work around for that is to create an image with the text and photo in one, make the entire thing a link for your CTA.

If you don't have photoshop, gimp is a free photo editing program you could use for that.

I have a quick question.  Doesn't that solution cause problems with responsive design and if images are blocked by the users mail program?

Hi Jennifer! That's a good point -- If images are blocked, your recipients would miss the message. That's probably a great case for making sure your images have alt text. :)

Is MyEmma considering adding ready-made buttons to the drag-and-drop editor? A recent MyEmma webinar recommended buttons over web links, these would be a really handy tool to have instead of having to build them ourselves as images for each mailing.

Hi Jennie! I'm wondering if I'm missing your goal, because you can add an image to a text box: When you drag in a text box, hover over it and click the gear icon:



In the sidebar that appears, click to turn images on:



You can then change the amount of images you want to insert:



Does that get you what you need?

Thanks for the speedy reply! Okay. Didn't realize the functionality of that multiple image function in settings. I think I'm on the right track here.

Here is where I'm at...


This is basically the layout that I'm trying to achieve from an older template from another email marketing system. I want it side by side in the same block: 


I'm having difficulty using the image's drag functionality to drag the Hope Rocks image above the blue text. Basically I want it to look like this: 


How can I do this? I'm using the one column layout for this email.

Here's what I've got:



I did this by selecting Equal Columns:



and adding a Bottom Row:



Then I dragged in a text box and an image box on the left (added a caption to that image box), an image box on the right and a text box at the bottom.

Will that work?
