Emma provides free storage space for your images and documents. Use the image library for quick access to image files you use regularly in your campaigns, and use the document library to store files you want recipients to be able to download, like an attachment.
Using your image library
Your account comes with an unlimited image library to hold images you use regularly in campaigns. You don't have to store images in your library in order to upload them to a campaign, though. You can also upload directly from your computer, or from your Facebook or Flickr account. Your image library can store the following file types:
View your image library in one of two ways:
Head to your Campaigns section and click the Images button in the top right corner. In the window that appears, click on any image to view a file, or click to browse your computer and upload a new image.
Click on an image placeholder in the campaign you're already working in. In the window that appears, click on the Library tab to navigate your stored images, or upload a new one.
Using your document library
Your document library allows you to save your files to our server (up to 50 MB) and link your recipients right to them. It's a safe alternative to attaching a file directly to the email, which can cause the entire email to be blocked by spam filters or firewalls. Here's a list of file types that you can store in your document library:
- .pdf (Adobe)
- .doc (Microsoft Word)
- .xls (Microsoft Excel)
- .ppt (Microsoft Powerpoint)
- .pages (Mac Pages)
- .key (Mac Keynote)
- .swf (Flash viewing)
- .mov (Quicktime)
- .mpeg (Video)
- .wav (Audio)
- .zip (Zipped file)
- .ics (Calendar item)
- .vdf (VirtualDub)
View your document library in one of two ways:
Head to your Campaigns section and click the Documents button in the top right corner. In the window that appears, click on any document name to view a file, or click to browse your computer and upload a new one.
Click the Insert button on the editor toolbar in the text box you're already working in, and select Link, and then click Document in the window that appears. Use the drop down menu to view your list of stored documents. (You can't upload a new document from here, though.)
Deleting old files from your document library
If you reach the 50 MB limit, be sure to delete old files to make room for new ones. (If you remove a file, and a recipient tries to click on a link to that document in an old email, they'll see a message letting them know that the file is no longer available.)
Adding video to your email campaigns. Videos are a great way to engage your readers, but there's definitely a right way and a not-so-right way to include them in your emails. Here are a few considerations from the Ask Emma series.
