We're in the process of finding a way to create Flash-like ads for mobile. HTML5 has this capability and there are software packages out there that claim to convert Flash to HTML5. We've tried one, Wallaby, but the results are not consistent and not very good. Adobe Edge CS6 mimics the Flash timeline and animations and may be our solution. It's set to release later this year, though it's available right now in their subscription-based cloud for $19.95/month. MI is waiting for Adobe's decision on how to release it, whether it's in a CS package or just on its own. More on that once they announce their decision. MI will purchase the software and start testing. We'll keep you in the loop.
Video AdGent Digital. Specs are the same, just a new name Please check out the specs and submission requirements before creating one of these ads. In order to remain consistent even if and when we change vendors again, these ads are now called Floating Videos.
Photoshop and Illustrator Files
You now have a series of layered Photoshop files giving you both textures and buttons to use in your ads. Then there are Illustrator files with page curls and fancy ampersands we're sure you'll find a use for. Have fun with these and let us know how you've used them. Documents

Landing Page Requirements Have Changed!
For ads serving to the Yahoo! Network, the offer(s) in the online ad must match the the offer(s) on the landing page. For ads serving to local markets only, the landing page does not need to match the offer in the ad. Be sure to check out the updated landing page requirements posted on our Landing Page or on our Ad Notes page for all the details.
