Customize the content of a cell

Once you've imported your image file into Inkbrush, you can customize the background color, alt text, click-through URL, and image format of any cell that you've defined in your email template. You can also apply simpler changes, like changing the color fill of a cell or completely clearing out the contents of a cell. Finally, you can inject your own custom HTML into a cell.

Note: You can also add text to a cell. For more info, see Add text to a cell.
