The newsletter backgrounds menu allows you to choose from predesigned graphical backgrounds or upload your own image to use an image as the background. This article will only cover background graphics and uploading images for your background; for a complete overview of the SurveyMethods newsletter module, visit our article Create a Newsletter from Scratch. To set a background color, visit the Customize the Colors in Your Newsletter help article.

The backgrounds menu can be found on the right side of the design newsletter page. To upload an image, click Create Your Gallery and then either drag an image into the specified space or click the link to choose from your computer.

Once you upload your image you can choose it from your gallery to apply it to your newsletter:

When you choose a background image, you will be asked to specify a background color for emails, which will replace your image to the extent a user’s email client will not display the image.

To choose a predesigned background choose a category (e.g. Restaurants) and then select one of the templates that shows in the box to the right.

You will see the background update in your newsletter preview pane.
