different images in different sized ads

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I want to have a different image in different sized ads.

For example, I have an image that looks great in the square ads, but horrible in the horizontal ads.

Similarly, I have an image that looks great in the horizontal ads, but terrible in the square ads.

How can I mix/match the image to the appropriate sized ad shape?

The online tool says that some images (labeled product) are for this ad size only - but its not correct and I can't change it.  And other times when I add an image it insists that it is for all size ads and I can't change that either.

Hi Nat,

 

Thank you for posting on our Community forum. Regarding your different sized ads question, here's a suggestion you can try (I've used it myself for my own display ads):

 

1. Create your own ads using a 3rd party graphics editing software for each type of display ads (i.e. horizontal) but you will still need to make sure they are the exact dimension and resolution as shown in the Display Ad Builder tool. 

 

Be sure that you've reviewed the steps and tips on how to setup your image ads on our Help center pages here: http://www.google.com/ads/displaynetwork/get-started/#tab=create-image-ads & Display Ad Formats here http://www.google.com/ads/displaynetwork/build-your-ads/ad-formats.html#tab=image-ads

Hello Nat C

 

If you are editing an image embeded in an ad created in 6 sizes with the Ad Gallery ( or Display Ad builder) , the corners of the image can be draged to resize it to fit all 6 sizez. For example you can shrink the image on a diagonal direction.

OK, thanks, I don't have a program for that. 

It just seems odd that when I hover over the question mark for that image it says "This image is only included in the currently selected ad size" but thats clearly not accurate.
