• Embedding Images In Email

    With the well known growth in image blocking by email clients, some customers have been looking for alternatives to linking web based images into HTML emails. Some years ago, image embedding used to the standard way images were included in emails. It differs from linked images in that the image itself is actually encoded, and included inside the message. So once you have downloaded the email, you are not reliant on a web connection to view the images, because you have it all locally. It sounds perfect, except for a big increase in email size vs downloading just the HTML and then the images afterwards. We get asked fairly often why we don't allow image embedding to work around image blocking.

Unseen by the user, but just as real is the code behind each of those screens than makes motion, navigation, and the like possible. But there are other, abstract dimensions which are even more important: the interaction and chemistry between the website and the users, and between the web page and the search engines. These chemistries are abstract because, though they are very real and important to the success of the site, they are created by the physical objects mentioned in the beginning, in conjunction with the perceptions of the users and the search engines. These comprise the website experience. The real magic comes in manipulating the real dimensions to attract the right viewers, and create the right experience to induce them into buying your product.
