Image padding disappears in Microsoft Outlook

Knowledge Article Number 000213501

Microsoft Outlook uses the Microsoft Word engine to render emails which ignores image padding. To fix the problem, use one of the following workarounds:

  • Manually add white space around the image within the image itself, then upload the image to Marketing Cloud and insert it into your email.
  • Add an additional white image next to the your image.
  • Insert the image into a table with a fixed width so that a space will appear between the image and the content.
  • Insert an "HSPACE" HTML tag into the image's HTML to define the white space on the image's left and right sides.


Example HSPACE HTML Code


<img src="{image_file_name}" 
height =100 width =100
hspace="{Padding_in_Pixels}" align=left>
