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.
