Hi,

I am trying to achieve live HTML text over a gif. The reason for this is that our graphics with offer codes on them change constantly so we need a quick alternative to speed up this process of updating offers in fast fashion retail.

I have tried but haven’t been able to make this fully responsive- can anyone help me or has anyone managed to do this yet?

Thanks
Lottie

can be done by making the gif a background image -
the problem is outlook (as usual)
outlook can be very problematic, and you must use VML code, mso exceptions, and still can run into issues in several ways (esp if someone has a high dpi device that blows out your tables with HUGE live text)

(IMHO)
Your probably better off just updating the image in photoshop (or other) and updating the images on the fly - if your “good” it shouldn’t take much longer than updating the html live text
