so show a unique picture to each person.
Create a base image and add variables.
When an end-user views the image, it will be displayed with the variables populated.
The images are generated with the variables in real-time. Examples of variables can include:
The variables will be looked up from a source such as an API or Email Service Provider (e.g. Mailchimp or SendGrid).
Set a clear or coloured background, or upload an image in one of these formats:
Perform any basic editing:
Add variables to the image (e.g. [name] for the recipient's first name).
The variables must match those used in your source (e.g. an Email Service Provider such as Mailchimp or SendGrid).
The images can be embedded into any HTML based source, such as:
The image you create can be embedded as a standard <img> tag. e.g.:
<img src="https://media.okzest.com/img?c=JXXUxcpskCWj95v_dy48w&i=5t5w7TgO9Um_3kS7J_LrzA" />
Merge tags can be added, allowing custom text to be embedded to the image in real-time, from sources such as Email Service Providers (e.g. Mailchimp or SendGrid):
<img src="https://media.okzest.com/img?c=JXXvUxcpskCWj95v_dy48w&i=5t5w7TgO9Um_3kS7J_LrzA&name=*[FNAME]*" />
You can use a default value for when no variable is present e.g. if you don't have the first name for all people in your email list, you could use 'nothing', a space or the word 'friend'.
When the user's web/email client initiates the image download, it is generated in real-time before being downloaded. The generation is very quick, adding less than half a second to the download time.
We provide multiple plans at different prices, including a free option which includes 2,500 generated images per month.
The free plan is intended for small businesses, or companies that want to try our service. It includes a small 'Powered by OKZest' watermark in the bottom-right corner e.g.:
If you send 10,000 emails and only 2,000 are opened within the month, only 2,000 images will be generated and count towards your current plan.
If you need more images than your plan provides, you can choose to either upgrade to a higher plan or purchase additional credits (see the plans page for details). Purchsased credits never expire, so you can use them in the following months.
