I have a form set up with a hidden field to capture the utm_campaign on the referral link and write it to the Person Source. If its not present, it defaults to Gated Content. Here's how I have it set up:
I'm trying to test it with some ads we're running. The ads point to this URL: https://www.plasticsurgery.org/cosmetic-procedures/liposuction?utm_source=Dynadmic&utm_medium=Video-Advertising&utm_campaign=Dynadmic-Liposuction-Q4-2021
On that page, there's a CTA that leads to a Marketo landing page at https://pages.plasticsurgery.org/LiposuctionHandbook.html
I've been trying to test it by pasting the link above into an Incognito browser, clicking on the CTA, then creating a fake account. But when I check the program member record of the fake account, it shows the Person Source set to the default, Gated Content.
I had this set up and let it run for a few days, and I did catch the UTM parameter of a completely different campaign in the list (this is the only thing currently running that sets Person Source.) So the field is capturing something, just not when I do it.
Do I need to set this up differently, or is this just something that isn't going to be captured (or maybe it is - but no one from the ads is filling out the forms)?

So I think the multiple displays might be the answer here: I have a laptop connected to 2 monitors and I tend to look at everything on the biggest monitor. I tried moving the edit window to my laptop screen and magically the larger images look cleaner. Looking at a test email through Gmail with two differently sized but otherwise identical images, it seems they look the same on the laptop screen, the larger one looks slightly blurry on the extended screen, but on my iPhone the larger image looks cleaner than the smaller image.
It's kind of bananas, I've never noticed this effect before. I checked out a few other emails I received from random places (i.e. not me) and for images with text in them, I seem to get the same effect. (Although, full disclosure, I have an eye appointment in a few weeks so I can't promise I'm actually seeing anything clearly 🤓 ).

Hi everyone! New Marketo user here - like our instance is still being set up new.
Quick question about images in emails. Several of the image blocks in the template created by our implementation vendor have fixed widths.
Playing around with dropping in assets, I've noticed that unless you use the exact right image width, the image comes out the right width but a little blurry. For example, these two logos are in a box set to 69x94. The first is set to those exact dimensions. The second is a larger image - 260 px wide - that was then scaled down by the system. The second image is ever so slightly blurry, which you can notice on things that have nice crisp lines like logos:
I haven't seen this before in other email programs. Scaling up from an image that's too small, sure, but not scaling down into a set size. I've put some cartoonishly huge images into small spaces before and, while load time isn't great, they still looked good.
Is this a Marketo thing, or is something up with the way the template is coded? And if it is a Marketo thing, what are the rules? Do I always have to use the exact pixel dimensions of the image, or is there a little wiggle room? I haven't tried it yet, but in the example above of an image set to 69px, could I upload an image that was 60px or 80px and it would still be ok?
