Creating bullet-proof HTML emails

This screencast will demonstrate how a bullet-proof, table-based email can be sliced and coded using ImageReady CS2. Other versions of Photoshop will work similarly, but I prefer CS2.

The resulting HTML email will display perfectly in the majority of modern email clients such as gmail, Apple Mail and Outlook.

This table-based approach is required thanks to the changes made in the Outlook 2007 rendering engine. Please read Campaign Monitor's article, Microsoft takes email design back 5 years, for an overview of the situation.
