Default Help putting a flyer in an email

Could someone please tell me how to make a flyer (in pdf) appear in the body of an email instead of sending it as an attachment?

Thanks!

There's no easy way that I'm aware of that will let you embed a PDF file directly into the message. PDF will need some type of viewer, and normally a mail client or web interface will not be able to do that directly within the email message. There may be some hairy way to do it, but it's probably not a good idea for compatibility reasons. My advice is to either post the PDF somewhere and include the link in the email, or simply convert the PDF to an image and include that either directly in the email or as an attachment.

I'm not sure if there are any converters online, but I know you can easily convert a PDF to image using tools like Photoshop. If you need help let me know.

The easiest way is to convert the pdf to an image and place it in your email.

If this is not possible, you will have to attach it.

Hi Christie

As the other posters have said you wouldn't be able to have the pdf display as an inline graphic in an email it would simply be an attachment (remember that everyone will be accessing email through different applications and browsers so in some cases you pdf might only appear as a line of text!).

I see you have a couple of websites - why not convert the pdf to a jpg, upload it to a very simple html page (with inline CSS).

On a Mac using Safari, navigate to the page and then select Safari > Mail Contents of This Page.

On Windows using IE7 and up, navigate to the page and then select Page > Send Page by E-mail.

As long as you leave the image and basic html page hosted where they are most email applications should be perfectly fine. Although it's always a good idea to do a few internal tests to lots of different types of accounts - hotmail, gmail, aol etc etc.

Failing all of this a service like Mailchimp offers a great free package for small mailing lists. I use this service for my own emails - parbjohal (dot) com/emailers/thepowerofmagento/ - replace the (dot) with a '.'!

Hope that helps!
