Newbie - how to allow multiple images in an email

My clients need a blank template.  nothing in ti apart from webversion and unsubscribe then they insert mulitple images as links.  They need to be able to insert images from left to right and down- i,e 3 images in the first row then two larger ones in the next row and then one big one at the bottom.  No text is involved at all.  How do i go about doing this.  Thank you

Pretty easy - just setup a table with three columns and insert CM's image token, ie:

<img src="<$imagesrc link='true'$>" width="123"  />

Once saved as a template your client can use the web editor to add images & create links. Keep in mind, you may need multiple templates if your layout varies in width.

Also, do read up on image blocking http://www.campaignmonitor.com/blog/post/2559/current-conditions-and-best-pr-1/ - an all image email might not be very useful to a lot of your subscribers

Thank you fyredefyre and Mathew.  It is all very clear now.  I have created the tamplate now.  It looks exactly as I wanted.

Mathew,

Just read the image blocking and I already spoken to my clients about the issues.  Thanks for pointing that out
