Leadpages is one of the most popular landing page editors on the market. Its rise in popularity is due to the fact that the platform is simple, easy to use, very time efficient, and it was built by marketers for marketers.
The platform is a great step forward in marketing, as anyone can get a landing page up within minutes rather than hours or days and without having to pay for expensive designers and developers to create a landing page for you.
But the issue is…sometimes it’s a little to simplified.
In this case, the lack of ability to resize your images in the editor. As of right now, the editor is so simplified that the user must size their images with an outside platform like Photoshop or Canvas before uploading their image.
In this how-to, I will show you the best way to know what image size you should use in any Leadpages landing page template.
If you would like to see a video walkthrough of the steps below, scroll to the bottom of this post.
Step 1: Setup your Landing Page
The first thing you will need to do is open up a landing page in the Leadpages editor.
Once opened just name it and save it so we can then get the published link to view the published page.
In this case we will be using the Event Template.
Once you have opened the template in the editor and saved the template, then open the published page.
Step 2: Inspect Element
Once you have your published page opened, just mouse over any image you want, right click it, and press “inspect element” if you are using Google Chrome and Firefox. (Note: This will not work with Internet Explorer and you should never use IE anyways.)
Once you have clicked “Inspect Element” the code will appear at the bottom. Do not get scared here if you don’t know a single line of code. What’s cool about clicking “Inspect Element” on the image is that it will (90% of the time) highlight the element that you have clicked on and all you have to do is hover over the image link and it will tell you the image size you need to know.
With the 3rd arrow shown in the image above, the image might show two sizes. The resized, size on the left, and the natural size on the right. We recommend going with the natural image size.
