    ClicksInks Banner Size errors
    Hi all,
    I just signed up for your program, and you have some great looking banners.
    However, I did notice that several of the banners are actually not sized quite correctly.

    An example:
    http://www.shareasale.com/image/468x60-18.gif
    actually serves a 470x62 image.

    There are quite a few others, easily identified inside ShareASale since it displays accurate size information.

    These banners were uploaded before I took over the management of the program, but I guess the reason for the extra two pixels each way is to avoid the ad blocking software. Does it cause much of a problem for you, Blackjack?

    to avoid the ad blocking software
    Sometimes I shave a proportionate few pixels off height and width for just that reason.

    The ones that are pretty close aren't an issue. I'm serving them with width= and height= tags and they are getting resized a tiny bit, but they look fine.

    However, a few of the banners are quite a bit off.
    For example, I see a 468x60 and a 125x125 that are both actually 550x400!
    There are also several 125x125s that are actually 132x127.

    It's no problem for me, as I've chosen several that work fine.
    Just a heads up.

    Gotcha, Blackjack. No one has ever mentioned this to me, and I appreciate you doing so. I will look into this and maybe get a few new banners up (especially of sizes that are as far off as 550x400 from 125x125)... Again, I need to look through them all (and you know, there are quite a few) to determine which ones to remake. But I do appreciate the heads up, Blackjack.
