How can I increase the resolution of images in MailChimp?

Can I adjust the size of pictures larger than 600px when exporting from Mail Chimp to an email?

Yes, MailChimp is able to export and display pictures larger than 600px in outgoing emails. However, there are certain factors that may cause the image to appear smaller than its original size in the email.

To begin, when you insert a picture larger than 600px in a blank template on MailChimp, it’s important to ensure that the image is properly optimized for email. This includes resizing the image to an appropriate width and height, as well as reducing the file size to avoid slow loading times.

MailChimp’s default setting is to automatically resize images to fit within the email template. This can sometimes result in larger images being displayed at a smaller size. To override this default setting and display the image at its original size, you can use custom HTML code.

When adding the image to your template, instead of using the “Image” content block provided by MailChimp’s drag-and-drop editor, you can insert a custom HTML code block. Within this block, you can manually set the width and height attributes of the image to match its original dimensions.

For example, you can use the following code to insert an image with a width of 800px and a height of 600px:

<br><img src="your-image-url.jpg" width="800" height="600" alt="Description of the image"><br>

By using custom HTML code, you have more control over the display size of the image in the outgoing email. Keep in mind that larger images may not always render well on certain email clients or devices with smaller screens, so it’s important to test your emails across different platforms and devices to ensure a consistent viewing experience for your recipients.

In conclusion, MailChimp does allow you to export and display pictures larger than 600px in outgoing emails. By using custom HTML code, you can override the default image resizing and ensure that the image is displayed at its original size. However, it’s essential to optimize the image for email and consider the potential limitations of different email clients and devices.

No, Mailchimp does not have the ability to export pictures larger than 600px in their outgoing emails. This is a limitation of the platform and cannot be changed. If you need to include larger images in your emails, you may need to consider using a different email marketing platform that supports larger image sizes.
