What does Bypass Uploader do?

What does Bypass Uploader do?

Our Bypass Uploader checkbox should be used if your image is already at the correct dimensions and doesn't require editing on upload. What it does is uploads your image exactly as it is, without applying any cropping, resizing or compression which results in a crisper image.

What does Scale for Retina and HiDPI Devices do?

What does Scale for Retina and HiDPI Devices do?

The Scale for Retina and HiDPI Devices feature is extremely beneficial as it allows your images to display crisp and clear on retina and hi-dpi devices such as Macbook's and mobile phones.

Retina devices display at a higher resolution than your normal computer monitor, because of this an image that would usually display as crisp and clear on your monitor may appear slightly blurry to others using a retina device.


If you require a High Definition version of your image for use on Retina and HiDPI displays such as the latest iPhones, iPads and Surface Pro's, you should create your image at double the required finished dimensions at 72DPI resolution.

For example if you would like your image to display at 150 pixels wide by 50 pixels high, then you will need to create your image at 300 pixels wide by 100 pixels high.

Once you have done this you can upload this image and tick the "Scale for Retina and HiDPI devices" option, then you can crop and scale your image as normal OR also tick "Bypass uploader" to leave the image untouched before clicking Next.

Default Images

What is a default image?

What is a default image?

A default image is a global image that can be applied to all email signatures across your account.

You can upload a default image for your primary, secondary and base images which can then be applied to your email signatures without having to upload it multiple times. Simply select the Use Default Image option from your Images tab when editing your signature and it will use your default image instead.

Default images can also be updated automatically in the email signatures without requiring a re-install. To do this, you just have to Edit the uploaded image file and replace it with an image of the same dimensions and file type.

NOTE: The email signature may require a re-install in some mail clients such as Gmail if installed directly into Gmail's settings.

When should I use a default image?

When should I use a default image?

If all or most of the email signatures in your account are going to be using the same primary, secondary and/or base images then you should be using the default image option.

Uploading your images as a default image will save you having to upload the image over and over again for each new email signature. Instead, you can upload the image as a default image, then set your email signature to Use Default Image. When duplicating this email signature, it will duplicate the Use Default Image setting and pull in the image for you removing the need to upload images again.

If you're planning on updating your banner images regularly whether it be for deals, promotions or events, you should use a default base image. When you go to update the banner, all you need to do is replace the image with one of the same dimensions and file type and the banner will automatically be updated within your mail client.
