How to download Display Ad builder Ads for a selection presentation

Hello,

 

The adwords editor reports as "downloading" even the ads built with the Display Ad builder , but it does nothing useful, the exported zip "with images" results in a single CSV.

I need the animations ( swf files, or other format )  to show them as creatives in a presentation to let someone choose between multiple proposals. I don't want send to aproval  50 versions x 6 sizes . How do I download those animations ?

I am not sure what to suggest. The preview link you generate from inside your account is available only to people you share the link with. You would have to give someone the link before they could use it. The client you're making the presentation to will only see you click on the preview link during your presentation and then they'll see the ad itself.

 

I know of no way at all to download all of the ads in an account in the way you're describing. I would offer that I've never found it necessary to offer a lot of animated ads in a presentation. I sometimes demonstrate one or two animations, just so the client gets a sense for what the ads will look like in a live environment. It's never been a problem?

The online interface does produce links that display the active ads (with animation). I would suggest using those.

Where exactly is this link , only in my live account ? Can you put here a link for one of your creatives like you are suggesting that I would do for a presentation ?

I find it very frustrating to have to copy & paste one by one all these Links. I am sure that this is a solutions , but i am sure Adwords Team can Work something out for the MCC accounts at least. Adrian B has a point here.

The preview link seems to have an unwanted effect, the click on the links of "previews" are recorded in adwords as stated in the second print-screen bellow, after a click :

I don't want to risk having 300 clicks recorded on banners in adwords just for a presentation.

 

The searched for an aplication to download flash content from a browser but haven't found one.

I also have the same issue. I need to be able to get these images from the Display Ad Builder - and convert them into a .png file or a .jpg.

I typically create the image ads in the builder, and then test them. Then I give the best ads to a specialist web designer to create better ads in photoshop.

I tried to download to adwords editor and export , even with the image zip export. To no avail.

What would be really useful to agencies/adveritisers, if the ads can be downloaded. When right clicking on them, their is no option to save as an image. only to save the web page. I have gone into the source code to try find the image, but it appears as though it is created out of dynamic elements which are contained- not as a single image.
