Manual Editing With Text Editor
Manual editing with text editor is our recommendation to get started even if you use an ESP compatible file that’s because editing on an ESP always has a limit. For example mailchimp did not have a feature where you able to change an image background and to get it changed you have to edit the code inside Mailchimp which I think it is not convenient because it doesn’t even have a search tool so it would be really hard to target a code.
As for the solutions we recommend you to get started with manual editing to change elements that your ESP can’t facilitate such as changing image background before uploading it to your ESP.
