Hi Community Member,

 

We are attempting to set up a gif banner on mobie banner. We know that flash can make a vivid banner, and than we have to convert flash into gif, and in the end we upload the gif banner into Google Adwords. We make display ads on mobie, so the only one dynamic ads is gif . The problem we are facing now is that we need a good tool to make flash banner. Does someone have some free websites or tools to share?  Thank you very much !

Hello,

Since your concern was : "The problem we are facing now is that we need a good tool to make flash banner. " , the linked page offers a good tool to do that. The problem is that tools is no longer called Display Ad Builder but the current name is "Ad Gallery" (even if the tool is the same) and it has over 100 animation templates and hundreds of background pictures to use.

To find instructions about it, scroll the help page from the link to the section "Creating your image ad" and click on the + sign in front of the text "Using the Ad Gallery". The result of this tool is a set of 6 flash banners in your account, in 6 standard sizes.

This is also a good page with advice about this Ad Gallery tool :

Now , since you want to use these banners to target mobiles, the only size generated with the Ad Gallery that is supported also by mobiles is the 300 x 250 banner.
So please also check from the initial link the specs supported by mobile image ads.

Hi Sophie, 

 

Have you tried using the Display Ad Builder tool. It has the functionality to create the type of ad you want. Let me know if that doesn't do what you want it to do.

Hi Hannah,
Thank you for your reply. The link you giving me Display Ad Builder tool is a page about creating image ads in different size . I thought it should have been another website.
