Change the colours in your email campaign

Learn to customise your campaigns with colour.

Overview

EasyEditor offers two ways to change background colours:

  • Change the background colours of individual blocks yourself.
  • Use the colour theme tool to create a harmonious colour palette quickly.

Change the background colour of a block

To change the background colour of a block in EasyEditor:

  1. While editing your campaign in EasyEditor, select the block you want to change.
  2. In the left-side column, select the Styles tab, then expand the Background drop-down editor.changing_background_colours_overview_el.png
  3. Expand the Background layers drop-down menu, then choose the layer you want to style.
    Alternatively, select the precise area in the campaign, and the drop-down selection changes accordingly.
  4. If you want to change all matching colours in the campaign, select the Change all matching colours check-box.
  5. To change the colour, either:
    • Enter a HEX code.
    • Select a colour in the Colour picker, and use the slider to adjust its brightness.
    • If available, select a previously used or saved colour from Colours in this campaign or My colours.

Picked the wrong colour?

The background colour changes as soon as you select a new colour. To undo any changes, select Undo or use CTRL+Z.

Match a block with its background

If you want a block to have the same colour as its background, rather than colouring them both in, make the inner one transparent. To do this, select the transparency icon.transparency_icon_el.png

To save a colour in My colours: choose a colour, and then select Save colour. You can save a maximum of 50 colours.

You can do this in both the Background and Colour theme editor menus.
