Hey Warriors!

I am a newbie with Adwords Editor. I managed to import all information to Adwords Editor via csv file except the images. I get an error "Failed to read image ad's image data."

I tried different ways to import it but get the same error:
(Header Name => Field)
image name => warriors.jpg (where does editor locate it?)
image file name => c:\warriors.jpg
image url => http://www.example.com/warriors.jpg

Any ideas? :confused:

Thanks!

    yes buddy instead on trying to upload via editor, instead go in and download a csv via the editor / save that to your pc, then reverse engineer it, that way can see exactly what the reverse is moving back in and fix the error.

    you may need to load a few images in your adwords account first.

      Thanks for some ideas tryinhere!

      I did try the "reverse engineer" method and I think the images were already uploaded to Adword's server by creating image ads under Ad tab. No luck.

      Yep, I tried to search for answers via Adwords Help and Adwords Forum ...I just emailed to Adwords but I believe it would take forever to get their response.

    what i can see in editor is you can create manually add a image ad and at the bottom it says upload image / so i would go through that process in the editor rather than adwords then in editor select file / export

    ? OK from what i see in csv there is no option to allocate a source url for the image in the csv file

    image name => warriors.jpg (where does editor locate it?)
    image file name => c:warriors.jpg
    image url => http://www.example.com/warriors.jpg

    those 3 columns =

    image name = my image name
    display url
    destination url

    but i see no image file name / image url ? are these in your csv file ? as i do not have them

    my guess is this you would upload the csv that would have everything but the images then attach them after to the editor and lastly upload them ?

    sorry cant help more than that / you need a display network guru here.

          Got it working!

          not correct:
          image name => warriors.jpg
          image file name => c:\warriors.jpg

          correct:
          image name => any name you want it
          image => warriors.jpg
          put warriors.jpg and import csv file in same folder
