Using Unsplash as an example, we would like to show you step by step how to get the photos and how to integrate them into the Sweap templates.

What is Unsplash?

How do I use Unsplash with the Sweap email template?
  1. Visit and use the search engine. Search for types, colours or tags, for example "Nature". You will find further suggestions directly below the search field.
  1. When you have found a nice picture for your template, right-click on the picture and select "Copy picture address".
  2. Go to the "Sweap App" tab in the email template you are creating and paste the link into the image URL (e.g. the header link). At the end of the link you will see a part of the link that says ... fit = crop & w = 3067 ...
  3. ... and since our image must be 600px wide, just change the width from the current value to 600px, and that's it!
  4. The image is cropped to the correct width and saved in your email template.
