Banner Ad Files

Banner Ads are image files. These images might be designed by your advertiser, you may have someone else design them, or you may design them yourself. Typically, graphic design applications like Photoshop, Illustrator or Sketch are used for designing banner ads.

No matter how you get your Banner Ad file, there are a few considerations to remember:

  • File types should be either: JPG, PNG or GIF
  • Avoid animations, but they are permissible
  • Keep the file size as low as possible – less than 150kb
  • The optimal size is 300 pixels in width by 250 pixels height (300×250)
  • The file can have a hyperlink to a web address or email address

Ad Media is uploaded to your Media Library. Remember to assign Banner Ad files to the Ads Category to make searching for and managing all Ad files easier.
