- Choose your favourite color,and further choose your design by opening templates 1-6 in your web browser for editing.
Once you have chosen your color scheme and the best layout to begin your newsletter, remember not to edit the original files and to make a copy to work on it.
Editing:Use your Favourite text editor,if you are beginner and dont have any you can download some such as for window users Notepad++.Intermediate or Advanced users can use Adobe Dreamweaver.
To make HTML files easy to use, we have made some comments (text that is ignored by the program) between the code in order to make it easy for editing. Look for the string <!-- in the source code.
Between <!-- name starts -- > and <!-- name ends -- > you'll find different content areas that you need to edit.See the example below for editing menu content.
Similarly Replace text for headings,paragraphs in different content areas.
You will find all images for respective template in images folder in that template.Suppose you want to change the logo image:
Look for image in code and see its extension jpg or gif.
Use sliced elements psd files for preparing your graphics.
Save the graphic in images folder,and replace the original if it is named same.
- Remember to update the name of the image in code if your logo is named differently from the original one, which is logo.gif, or just name it like this.
- Watch the video below
- Upload images folder of respective template to your domain
- Now replace the path of the images from relative to absolute images/ to http://www.domain.com.com/images/ (or corresponding) in the HTML file.
It will be very frustating and time consuming to replace all paths,so simple method is use email services such as mailchimp or campaign monitor.U simply have to upload a zip file of images and html together,rest they will automatically replace relative paths with absolute,and store all your images on their server.
Using PSD Files
If you use Photoshop to edit your images, you will find full PSD and sliced elements for each layout.
Sliced elements:These include interface elements such as buttons,image placeholders for inserting images,banners, sale tags etc.They are named same as used in html files so easy to replace original.
- If you want to change any text in the element.psd file, such as sale tags, and button price,coupon codes feel free to play around with them they are completely editable!
- Placeholder elements for inserting images are made using smart objects just double click to insert your image and save to update.
After editing and deleting, you may want to export the resulting images. Go to File › Save for Web (or corresponding) or press Alt+Shift+Ctrl+S, make the adjustment and proceed.
Use same extension .gif or .jpg as in original image that you want to replace, otherwise you have to update the image extension in code also if u use different.
Locate the corresponding color and template folder from which u selected psd. Let's say you opened from color1/template1/psd files/sliced elements/...then save to color1/template1/images.
Replace the original image.
