Using Images in Standard Bulletins

Using images in your bulletins can help grab your subscriber’s attention and enhance the message that you are trying to convey. In GovDelivery Communications Cloud, it's easy to include photos, graphics, and other images in your topic and general bulletins.

Adding Images from your Image Library

The image library allows you to access existing images and upload new images for use in your bulletins and templates. The image library features two tabs:

  • Everywhere: all images available for you to use
  • Specific: images only available to the template or bulletin you are working in

Your library might already contain images. Images can be added to the library during bulletin creation, or from within the library itself. To learn more about uploading and managing images in the library, see Managing Images.

To add an image from your image library to your bulletin or template:
