Uploading a Creative

Here we are posing a small 11 kb image.

This image must be serialized using base64 encoding and passed into the field encodedRawCreative.

To encode an image you can use https://www.base64-image.de/ or find a library for the language you are using to do it programmatically. There is an example in the python code that accompanies this tutorial

For this call you will see that you need to pass in the Advertiser ID when posting the Creative.

From this we will need the pontiacCreativeId. We will pass this in when making the Line, in this example it is 28214.
