  4. Do one of the following actions:

    • Drag files or browse for files from your local folders.

    • Select existing assets from the Assets Library.

HTML/Static Image Ads

You can use the Ad Creation Wizard to create HTML ads, or image-based ads (.jpg, .png, .gif).

Note

Note: Image-based ads can be up to 200 KB.

Preparing Your HTML Ad

Please note these important points when building HTML ads using a Workspace:

  • Name your default images Default, Fallback, or Backup to ensure that SAS automatically assigns those images as Default Image.

  • Ad Creation Wizard names the ads from the selected file (zip or image). For example, if you want your ad to be named Standard Banner 300x250, the zip file or image file should have the same name.

  • Keep your default image to less than 200 KB.

How Do I Indicate the Ad Format?

Procedure
  1. In the Ad Creation Wizard, do one of the following actions:

    • Drag files or browse for files from your local folders.
