How to Upload Images and Attachments to the CDN

Modified on: 2014-11-14 15:06:54 -0600

SharpSpring enables you to upload and store images and attachments on our Content Delivery Network (CDN). There are two areas in SharpSpring where you can add images and attachments to the CDN. One option is by clicking on the green "New" button in the upper right corner of the app. The other option is to upload images and attachments in the email editor.

SharpSpring allows you to attach the following file types:  jpg, jpeg, png, gif, txt, docx, doc, zip, pdf, csv, xls and xlsx. It's recommended that you limit the size of your email attachments to around 5 MB.

(Note: We also suggest not sending zip file as an attachment. Zip files are likely to end up in a recipient's spam folder.)

The following video will show you how to upload images and attachments to the CDN in SharpSpring. However, if you prefer, a written step-by-step guide is available below the video for your convenience. ​
