    I know it is a much smoother transition if I use flash to generate banners. But first I wanted to know what you guys think about these:

    how witty-- sex sells!

    I have no expertise in banner advertising, but I think the transitions are a bit too fast; I had to go through each a couple times to actually catch what the ad said. Other than that I think they are good.

    The advantage of flash adverts is that Ad-blockers like zonealarm DO NOT block them (whilst they block GIF and jpeg banners) - or at least thats the way it was when I was using ZoneAlarm.

    I liek the banners, bur yes they are a bit too fast. i read slow i had to sit there 1 min to read each (really slow).
    Gif or Flash... stick to gif your banners are too simple to start loading it in flash.

    Usually for banners it is better to go with flash but if you are limited to size then you will have to stick with .gif

    I like your banners, flash just makes more sense in my opinion

    I wasn't too happy to hear the unexpected sound, but that aside.

    It really depends where the ad is going to be used, it's always good to contrast the ad with the page in which it will reside. If it's a busy page design make the ad appear slow and calm... If it's bland static page give the banner some impact. If I recall, this is a good article you may wish to read, it'll go into more detail.

    An alpha tween on the appearing text might be less blunt on the eyes?
