DPI scaling for Outlook

Hi,

Trying desperately to get around the issue of scaling with 120 DPI in versions of outlook.

I have seen various work arounds here:

https://www.emailonacid.com/blog/article/email-development/dpi_scaling_in_outlook_2007-2013 

However, I don't really want to hard code changes inline after compiling and inlining.

How do I get around this issue?

 

Many thanks,

Phil

You could add the widths to your images in Inky as any needed VML. You won't need to do it the parsed table markup.

I just swop out the top of my default.html layout file to..

Then everything scales properly
