*About Responsive Mobile Image Views:  The new is a mobile friendly site. Because of this wide images need to auto-adjust to varying devices the website is viewed on. When viewed on smart phones or tablets your Front Page Bottom Full ad’s “live area” width can be greatly decreased. Because of this keep the most important copy should appear in the center of the ad space. 

The following diagram is an example of the cropping that can place on the Front Page Bottom Full. This auto-adjust doesn’t affect Front Page Takeovers or Box Ads- since they are not an extremely wide format.
