Collapsable unopened images to reveal jsut small area for alt tag msg

Hi,

I have been trying to achieve something and I will try my best to be as clear as possible.

I would like to find out how to have the container where the image is to collapse on preview (gmail) so the entire text of whatever below that image block or td.


------------------------                TO         ---------------------------
|                       |                            |  alt tag msg        |
|                       |                            ----------------------------
| alt tag msg      |                                 other msgs in alt tag or txt content
|                       |
------------------------
other msgs in alt taf or txt content.


I have seen this achieved on certain newsletter i receive but I am cracking my head to find out how but in vain.

Mine would be the exactly the same size as the size of the image area after loaded.

thanks in advance.

Hi cokeaddik, welcome to the forums. Have you tried simply not defining the width and height of the image, eg. <img src="yourpic.jpg" alt="alt tag msg" /> ?

If images are blocked in Gmail, the image placeholder should appear collapsed. Let us know if this works.
