Play Button Overlay
- To add a play button over your images, in the PoliteMail Builder, go to Content > Images.
- Select the image you want to add a play button to.
- Click on the play button icon to add a Play Button Overlay.
- In PoliteMail Online, place the image into your message first. Once inserted, click on it to reveal the play button icon.
- A new preview window will pop up. Select the button style you want and click Save Thumbnail.
Your new image with a play button overlay will appear in your images.
To add your new image to your message, drag-and-drop the image into the message body. Alternatively, you can double click the image to add it.

- Insert your image into the email body, then right-click on the image and select “Create Video Thumbnail.”
