Inserting and resizing an image
When composing or personalizing the content of your Pitch:
Click the Image icon
Choose an image from your computer
Resize or align the image as needed
You can add files such as PDFs or documents when composing your pitch. Keep in mind that each attachment can be up to 2 MB (megabytes) and up to 3 attachments can be added per pitch. Each email sent via Muck Rack can be up to 25 MB total.
To add any files to a pitch you're sending:
Click the hyperlink below the text box to select files or click the paperclip icon
Choose a file(s) from your computer
Can you embed videos in a Pitch?
Most email clients (including Gmail and Outlook) cannot play embedded videos.
A common workaround is embedding an image or a GIF of the video in your email. Then, hyperlink the image to your video hosted on another website (e.g. YouTube).
To hyperlink an embedded image or GIF:
Click the image icon to upload a picture (e.g. a screenshot from your video)
Insert the image
Highlight the image
Click the link icon
Enter the URL of the video
Note that you have to convert any MP4 files to a GIF before trying to upload it in the Pitches composer above.
If you're going with a static JPG image instead of a GIF, usually you’ll want the image to be at least 600px or wider.
