Moosend's Form Designer allows you tons of flexibility when it comes to adjusting your chosen templates and the elements they contain, so that you can ensure that your subscription form looks exactly how you want it to! One of the things you can adjust is the images contained within your subscription forms.
Let's see how you can change the settings of an Image element inside the Form Designer.
A. Setting up the image
1. Click on the Settings icon located above your image when you hover over it, to display its settings on the left side of your Designer page.
2. Click on the Background Color option, to choose the background color of your image out of the palette of colors available.
Most of the times the default transparent option is the one that works best, but sometimes adding background color might help you better integrate an image to the style of your design, especially if you intend to resize the image so that it doesn't take up all of the container space.
3. Click on the Image Alignment drop-down menu to change the alignment of the image inside the container.
Your alignment options are Left, Center and Right.
4. Click on the Image Width field, located within the image settings on the left side of the page, and use the up/down arrows to specify the width of your image.
The maximum possible value for image width is 2000.
5. Click on the Image Height field, located within the image settings on the left side of the page, and use the up/down arrows to specify the height of your image.
The maximum possible value for image height is 2000.
6. Click on the Image Border Radius field, located within the image settings on the left of the page, and use the up/down arrows to specify the image border radius.
The maximum possible value for border radius is 2000.
7. Fill-in the online address, in the designated Link Url area, to which clicking on the image might lead.
Adding a URL is not necessary unless you want your image to lead your subscribers somewhere. It's just there in case you need it!
8. Click on the Alt Text field, located within the image settings on the left side of the page, to type the text that you would like to appear in place of the image (in the event that the image cannot be displayed).
9. To replace the existing image, click on the Replace Image button to upload a new image from your computer, or use the Or enter Url... option to grab your new image from the internet!
B. Editing the image
1. Hover over your image to display the Drag icon above it, then use your mouse to reposition the image wherever you like within your structure.
2. You also check out the additional options on the left side of your Designer page, which are included in order to help you position and size your image perfectly within your structure.
Opens the crop pop-up which focuses on the image and provides you with efficient cropping tools. Here's how to crop your image:
- Natural Size
Resizes the image back to its original dimensions.
- Full Width
Resizes the image to cover the maximum possible width inside the container.
- Remove Image
To remove an image completely, click on the Remove Image button. You can then use the Replace Image button to replace it with a new one, if you so desire!
C. Cropping the image
1. Click-n'-drag the Crop Box to define the area of the image you want to preserve.
Preserved area of the image is made apparent by graying out the area which will be cut-out.
2. Click-n'-drag the sides and corners of the Crop Box to resize it to taste.
3. Set Crop Box width by pulling, typing an exact number, or by using the up/down arrows which appear as soon as you place your mouse on the Crop Box Width area, on the left side of the pop-up.
4. Set Crop Box height by pulling, typing an exact number, or by using the up/down arrows which appear as soon as you place your mouse on the Crop Box Height area, on the left side of the pop-up.
5. Click on the Crop button to crop the image.
You can always click on the Cancel button if you change your mind. Or did you press on Crop and you now find that you don't like the way the result looks? Don't worry, cropping isn't permanent! You can go back and re-crop the original image from scratch, as many times as you need to.
