Make sure to add alt text to each image. If a subscriber can't see an image for whatever reason (for example, some browsers block images by default), the alt text will describe it for them. Emails with alternative texts are less likely to end up in a spam folder. What's even more important, alt text makes the email more accessible to visually impaired users.

To add alt text, click the Alternative text field in the Content tab while selecting the image in the email.

By default, all images have their width parameter set to Auto. This way, an image will auto-scale to fit the width of the column. This ensures that the image will always adjust to different screen sizes. You can turn off this option and set the image size manually.

Toggle off auto width

Use paddings to position the text and the image next to each other so that the design looks nicer. To do this, toggle on the More options switch under Block Options in the menu.

You can add a link to each image. To do this, add a target URL and choose an Open web page action under Action in the menu.
