I just started using Illustrator. I made a logo that looks all clean and stuff, but no matter what format I save it in, it looks like shit.

What format do you guys save these kinds of images in? Like a logo that’s going to go on a website…

OK first off illustrators default format is *.ai – as you probably know. You can save it as a PDF and keep its wonderful vectorness too.

If you want to save it as a jpg, gif or png for web use the "Save for web" option, then everything will be ok.

What I would normally do is save for web, then optimise in Fireworks as I find it a better program to get the most out of your file size, compared to PS and Il.
