Image Upload Recommendations


We don’t provide any limits on file size for the Nudge Overlay backgrounds, but we do have a few recommendations for creating these images that will result in them loading correctly:

  • Utilize a 72 DPI resolution for optimal display on various devices.
  • Maintain image dimensions of 500px by 331px to prevent unwanted compression.
  • Opt for PNG or GIF formats over JPG, PSD, or TIFF for clearer rendering and smaller file sizes.
  • Avoid apostrophes in file names to prevent overlay image display issues.


That is all about creating an Email Collector or Call to Action Overlay. To learn about all the targeting options, please visit this section in the Help Center.
