Add images to templates at lightning speed ⚡

Alexandra Edelstein |

Over the past few months, we’ve made strides to improve our WYSIWYG template editor to make it faster (and more fun) to build beautiful and engaging emails in Klaviyo. Wondering if you missed something big? Check out our past posts on Shared Blocks and the new Product Block.

This month, it’s all about adding images into your templates as quickly as possible. We’ve added drag-and-drop functionality to our Image Block, as well as bulk image upload support for all email templates. Need to drop one image into your template? No problem. Want to drop in 8 at once to speed things up? Go for it! We’ve also added an easy way to insert a product image from your catalog into any Image Block.

Drop upload in email templates

Dropping an image from your computer into an image block is pretty cool (and we’ve made it really fast). After we added this feature, though, we knew we could do better.

When you’re building templates, you often need to add more than one image. Dragging in Image Blocks for each one, and dropping in images individually, can be tedious and frustrating when you just want to move on and start designing the rest of your email.

Now, you can grab up to 8 images from your computer, drop them anywhere inside a template, and watch them auto-upload in seconds and turn into configurable Image Blocks.

Watch how quickly we built this flash sale email featuring 8 products in two columns:

Add a Product Image in seconds

For eCommerce marketers, selecting products to feature in emails is a pretty common activity. While our Product Block makes it easy to insert one or more items and display key details such as product image, title, price, our users told us that sometimes they just want a quick way to choose a single product image.

Now, you can easily search your entire product catalog for the right item image to add into an Image Block. In addition to basic search, you can also filter your view here by product category, and browse through pages. Any product image you choose won’t get added to your Image Library, so you can keep this library full of other commonly used images discrete from your product catalog.

TL;DR

Creating beautiful emails in Klaviyo should be fast and easy, and to give our customers the best-in-class template builder they want and need we’re giving ours some serious ongoing love.

Adding one or many images into a template is now as easy and dropping them into any empty space. There’s also now no need to add all your product images to your Image Library, you can just grab these images directly from your catalog while building your template.

New blocks, improved blocks, this is just the start. If there are new email template features you’d like to see, leave a comment and let us know!
