Facebook Ad Images

Hi


Does anyone know how to pull the image URL of a Facebook Ad. When I look down the list of 'Split By' options, there is only the Promoted Post Picture URL, not the Ad Picture URL. This makes a difference as the image ration of a post it 1:1 but for an ad it is roughy 2:1. As a result, all our ad images are being cropped to a square picture and we're losing half the creative.


Is there a way to pull out the ad image rather than the post? I've tried manually editing the URL but no luck there either. There is a slightly different URL structure but it seems that each individual image needs to be extracted, you cannot convert it from the post picture URL.


Thanks

Alex

  • Hi Alex,


    at the moment it is not possible to retrieve other image URLs than the Post Picture URL. Thanks for the idea though, it is forwarded to our development team, and they will have a look if this would be possible to implement in the future versions of our Sheets add-on.

  • Hi! Could you please return to this problem? We have the same issue, we really need those pictures in our report. Thanks!

  • It's in Ad Activity -> extra_data -> image_url

  • Yes, this feature is crucial. Both facebook Ad text + Ad image should be feasible to be loaded.

  • Had this been resolved yet? I agree with above that both FB Ad Image + Text are very crucial for our reporting. Please respond to this as soon as possible. 

  • Hi,


    Sorry for the delay. We have now added "Ad creative image URL" as a dimension. You can find it in the "Ad details" section, along with "Ad title", "Ad body" etc.

  • Can someone explain to me why for one of my accounts I can pull the ad image, and ad creative thumbnail.  This is amazing, but on another account it only gives me the options of ad body and ad creative id, and ad creative url?

  • Hey,


    Did you try refreshing the fields of the data source? Please click on the pen next to the data source name, and hit Refresh Fields in the opening view.

    Another thing to try would be to create a new Facebook Ads data source.

  • That worked! Thanks! I do have another question.  When adding the ad body, the text is does not wrap, and I cannot figured out how to do it. Anybody know how to fix this?

  • Hi,


    the second problem sounds like a Data Studio UI issue. Please try creating a new graph if the previous one just froze, or check the Style settings for options on this.

  • Is there a way to resize the "ad creative image" in Facebook DataStudio report?  

  • Hi,


    you can only resize it by adjusting the Data Studio graph/row size I believe. Some image manipulation could potentially be done with calculated fields, but for that you'd need to look up Google's guides for the process.
