One of the frustrations of designing html email newsletters is Outlook 7.0’s and Gmail’s lack of support for background images.  I often use background images of navigational buttons and overlay the linked text on the button background. Without background images, designers are faced with creating button images in Photoshop for each button. Having to leave the html editor to work up new navigational buttons can become a time sink, and is best avoided.

Campaigner has a reasonable work around that can solve this problem.
