Other image block settings

You have two other settings available for image content blocks:

Edit image padding

You can add padding to images, which reduces the amount of space an image takes up in the block. To edit the padding for a block:

  1. Click the Image block
  2. Scroll to the General section in the image block options slideout
  3. Use the + and - icons to increase or decrease the container padding

To edit the padding of individual sides of the content block, enable the More Options button.

This will allow you to add padding to the Top, Right, Left, and Bottom sides of the block.

Hide images on desktops and mobiles

You can also show/ hide image blocks in emails depending on the device being used by your contact.

To hide an image per device, you must first switch to the editing mode for the device you want to hide an image on (desktop editing mode/ mobile editing mode).

You can do this via the options in the bottom right:


  1. Click the Image block
  2. Scroll to the Responsive Design section
  3. Toggle the switch next to the Hide on Desktop/ Hide on Mobile option
