Email Designs & Modern Editor

Do you use transparent colors in your designs or need a transparent background for a background image? We've added an option to set any color to transparent in your STYLES. You can set this for font colors, background colors, and any other color value in your stylesheet. Learn more


Who loves a fancy background image in their email designs? We know many of our users have been eagerly waiting for an easy background image tool in Modern Editor and now we have it! In any container you'll find the UI for uploading a background image in your email design. Take note: This is an advanced feature where knowledge of CSS is a plus. Learn more
