Due to increase image usage need for advertising network targeting images was felt.Blogs with photo centric content wanted to make money from images.Due to both of these requirements new ads networks came into picture.Most of the advertising networks like Google Adsense, Chitika and others display ads on your web page.But In Image ad network display ads within images of your web page.
The benefit will be if the visitor sees the image or scroll over image then ads will be displayed within images.So there is higher chances of in image ads been seen by visitors then banner ads on other part of your website.This works well if you have image centric website.
