Hi all,

 

I have been trying to upload an animation to use in a display ad.  However first it tells me to upload in .swf.  Then when I do, it tells me I cannot upload in flash.

 

Please let me know if there is a way round this.

 

thanks a lot,

 

Jack

Hi Jack,

 

Technically .gif ads and flash ads are different formats. For .gif ads, maximum size should be 150kb or smaller.

 

Here are more technical specifications:- https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/176108?hl=en

 

If you go beyond this, you might see errors.
