We recommend keeping image sizes below 25KB and the image format set to low resolution, 72dpi, RGB to decrease the time it takes to load images in the inbox. The higher the resolution and the wider and longer the image, the bigger the size. Big images will probably be blocked or take too long to download or render.

Background colours in emails are generally not recommended but can be changed. You’ll probably need an HTML designer for this bit.
Most background colours in email are rejected by various email clients, including versions of Microsoft Outlook and Gmail. Because of rendering issues; the system doesn’t have a tool allowing you to change the background colour.
Changing the background colour
When you create a new mail and choose a template, you’re able to play around with template design, colours & palettes in that step.
To change the background in step 2 of composition, you’ll need to copy the source code and give it to your graphics designer or someone familiar with HTML to hardcode the background colour into the code.
You’ll be able to insert the changed code back into the system and send the email with a background colour. If you’ll be using this type of template often, have one designed for you and add it as a template or create a template from a sent message.
