  • 250+500 web ad

    Hi

    quite new at this, but I need to make a crisp 250x500 web ad set under 100kB.
    I have tried using PS, AI and InD, even sketch, but the ad ends up beeing either oversized or full of noise.


    Any presets or app tips?

        Whether Photoshop, Illustrator or InDesign, the ad is converted into 250x500 pixels, so you might as well build it in Photoshop. The trick is getting it to compress down as a JPEG or PNG to under 100 kilobytes. The data in complex imagery, like photos, can't compress as efficiently as solid colors, so squeezing them down to an acceptable size requires tossing out so much information from the image that the quality suffers to unacceptable levels. Solid, flat colors and shapes compress much more efficiently and, consequently, retain more of their original quality.

          There's a lot of info you''re missing for banner ads. Even from above. What info do you have now?

          I do this at work now. Sometimes I get to animate things w/javascript even.

          Usually any HTML ad has been 200k or under. Stop working for a cheap skate (it can be done, but that's weaksauce ) Especially if you haven't done it before. There are things to learn. (No I'm not giving you our proprietary shit)

            I'm a creature of necessity. A lot of times the end client will want an actual signed release and a real photo credit, so you have to attempt to find the artist.

            All I can suggest is consult a tax expert in the UK. If your company doesn't mind you moonlighting like this, maybe they could suggest someone for you.

            I do business with people in the UK a lot. Because the gig they hire us for is going to be in the US, they time shift their design staff so they are available during US Eastern Time. It's the only way...
