    Image Pop Up

      Hello! Does anyone know how to create an image that pops out into a bigger image when someone clicks on it? I think it should just be some code but I don't know what that code is. I'm creating an email newsletter that walks the customer through several steps in how to do something so I plan to have a smaller screenshot in the email and a bigger screenshot pops up if the customer clicks on the image to get more information.

      Thank you,
      Ling

          You won't be able to accomplish this within an email itself. If you wanted to do this on a landing page, there's code that you can use to create a magnifying glass effect, or open the image in a modal window.

          Generally the easiest thing to do, and would work fine for your scenario also, is just link to a larger version of the same image in a new tab. So save two versions of the image, one that's small and compact for the email, and one that's full size. Link the email one to the full one.

            Thanks, Matt! That certainly makes sense. Do you have sample code of linking one image to another so I can just replace some snippets and put it into the email?
