Using Retina images with your design

Retina Images

Mail Designer 365 will create retina optimized images for the mobile version of your template. This ensures that your images will look sharp and crisp on mobile phones with retina display.

The button to switch between desktop and mobile versions shows you if retina support is activated.

If this is the case, Mail Designer 365 will automatically create retina optimized images for the mobile version of your template.

In addition, Mail Designer 365 checks every image you add to the mobile version. You will get the best result with your template. If an image has a too low resolution, you will notice this icon:

To enable retina images, Choose “File” > “Design Options…”

Make sure you have a checkmark next to “Create retina images for desktop” as well as “Create retina images” for mobile devices.
