To add custom images to shipment notification emails:

  2. On the EMAIL TEMPLATES page, select the pencil icon to edit the email template for which you wish to add a custom image.  

  3. Place the cursor on the template where you would like to add a new image.

  4. From the Variables menu, click on "Custom Images" to see your complete Image Library. Select the image Label that you would like to add.

  5. A new variable, that looks like this {% custom_image #_label %}, will appear on your email template. The corresponding image will appear in this location. 

    NOTE: "image_#" refers to the order in which the image was uploaded to your library and "label" refers to the Label name you entered when you added your custom image to the IMAGE LIBRARY settings. 

  6. By default, the image size will be limited by the file dimensions. You can also specific the image dimensions.

    The variable looks like this:

    {% custom_image #_label %}

    To specify the image dimensions, add the following information:

    {% custom_image #_label | image_size: 'WxH' %}

    In place of W and H, specify the pixels for the width (W) and height (H).  For example:

    {% custom_image 1_logo | image_size: '10x20' %}

  7. After you've finished your edits, select Update Template and your changes will be applied.
