Embedded image shrinking in Outlook
I'm trying to embed an image in an email compatible HTML file.
Instead of adding the image URL, which can pose a security threat, I'm embedding the image in the <img> tag used in the HTML file.
<img alt="" border="0" src="data:image/jpeg;base64,/9j/4AAQSkZJRgABAQA............">
The image which I embed seems to reduce to 80% of it's original size in Outlook. Following is a screenshot of the how the file looks in a browser :
Following is a screenshot of the how the file looks in an email client (Outlook for Office 365) :
As you can see the image seems to shrink in Outlook. The dimension are given below:
Browser : 800px X 600px
Outlook : 640px X 480px
Changed Width = 800 x 0.8 = 640px
Changed Height = 600 x 0.8 = 480px
Can someone please suggest how to fit the image in a container? And why the image is shrinking in Outlook?
