Home Forums Other Illustrator file Re: Illustrator file

Chances are, unless you specifically made something in raster, anything you built in illustrator is vector format. Vector basically means that it’s built by formulas and equations to determine the size and shape, so it can grow to any size without compromising the resolution.

When you cross over from vector to raster (in this case web) the way you save it can make a difference and you can see the fruit of it. And you saw that you can just cut/paste it into Photoshop and it saved fine because PS is a raster based graphics program with only a few vector capabilities.

That’s mainly the reason why if you are only dealing with the web, building it in PS when you are kind of new to all this software will make things much smoother

Yeah, I agree. It always matter in the way you are saving it.
