Images for Your Christmas Emails and Newsletters

We received a great response to our post on sending out invitations, greetings and newsletters via email (Outlook) and fax. If you haven't seen it yet… Here's a link to the Post.

A few readers also asked if there were any good sources for Christmas related images. Rather than listing any sources… Just do a search for FREE CHRISTMAS IMAGES in Google and you will find hundreds of sources.

Before you use the images, check the website to see if they have any conditions for use of their images.

How to download images from websites
The basic steps for downloading and using images from most websites are…

  • Right-click on a image > Save As...
  • On the pop-up screen, provide a name for the image and the location where you would like to save it.
  • Click Save.
How to use downloaded images in your emails
  • Create a new email
  • Place your cursor where you would like the image to be placed
  • Select Insert > Picture...
  • Click on the Browse... button and locate the image that you would like to use.
  • Click OK
I hope you found this article useful… and remember if you need to send out many invites, greetings or newsletters the easiest way is EmailMerge for Outlook.

$10 from all purchases in December will go to our Children's Charity projects.
