I have to create a banner ad for a website, to promote a friend's business. It's funny to think that I've been doing small-scale DTP for decades, and I haven't had to do this before now.

What's the best software to use? I have Pixelmator and Affinity Photo on my Mac now, alongside Adobe InDesign.

Anybody here do this for a living? I know modern banner ads can be animated, so I'd be open to using something purpose-built for animated ad creation if it's easy to learn. (InDesign can't do animated ads, right?)

Not for years and years – Flash and Adobe GoLive (!!) were my tools back then. I was going to suggest just creating an animated gif, but surprisingly both Pixelmator and Affinity Photo don't have that export option. There's an animation panel in InDesign but I've never used it myself... if you do get that to work I'd love to hear about how pain(less/ful) it was.

So it goes.

Wow. Been using InDesign since Version 2 and never knew that panel was there.

Guess I've got some reading up to do this weekend!
