Hi.

I got very excited when I managed to insert a gif of a screen recording into an email using the Gmail automation. But, I can't for the life of me resize the gif!

I've seen a few other posts that mention removing the '%' sign, so the number is for pixels, I've even put 'px' after the number to no avail. I can't see what I'm doing wrong and looking at CSS script, I can't see anything similar.

The code in the email is:

<img src="https://dl.airtable.com/.attachments/4264bcfde762b6e6126cc3dcdbdcf244/8e042b16/PortalConfirmTripGif...." style="width:300%;height300%" />

As I said, it displays, but I can't resize it and it is currently too small... it is just teasing me!!!

Any help appreciated.

It looks like you are using an image in an Airtable attachment field. Airtable is removing support for using urls of attachments this way. 

It also looks like you are missing a colon after the word height. Using px as your units should work. Make sure there is no space between the number and the letters px (300px not 300 px). But there is probably something else going on.

Thanks Kuovonne! That seems to have done the trick, I've changed the formula so many times that I'm pretty sure I had a colon there before, but not in this incarnation. 

Yes, using a URL as an image attachment, so I'll need to figure a different solution when Airtable's support vanishes...

Thanks once again.
