Yeah, I wish there was a way to make it look like it does in Illustrator, but in a format a logo on a website can be, even if the file size is bigger. What format would give me the closest quality to the Illustrator file? It’s mainly going to be for web.
I think the problem was that I made the .ai file with 300 resolution :o But now I’m kind of screwed because when I open it with PS it’s like 1700px long, and if I try to scale it down it starts to get distorted. Is there a way to change the resolution of the .ai file in Illustrator, or should I just start a new one.
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.
