Important Note on Copy Selection
You can assign various images/banners to a copy. They will then rotate randomly. If you want to test the performance of different banners you will need to set up multiple copies. On campaign level you can control if you want banners to be shown evenly ('Even') or based on their performance ('Best'). If you choose ''Best'', adverts with better CTR will be preferred.
