I have been working in illustrator CS5 making vector art. My main focus has been different iPhone game graphics (I make them in illustrator instead of photoshop so I can scale them for all the different devices and tablets) and have been so focused on making the art and learning (at least trying to) lots of different techniques that I overlooked the saving and exporting aspects. So I was hoping if someone would be able to help explain the best practice for rasterizing vector art.
I'm aware of
file > save for web and devices and because I'm doing mainly iPhone graphics, I will be saving in
PNG24. Is that all there is to it, or are there any tricks or techniques to make the art better or clearer? Because I'm rasterizing vector art, is there anything I need to keep in mind or do when I am actually making the art?
For example, I'm not sure if it would be better to take the vector art into Photoshop as a smart object, and then save it from Photoshop as it is a pixel based programme, maybe it has more options. Is that the case?
