Simply un-check Align with Layer in the gradient overlay options. Your gradient then isn't bound to the position or dimensions of the layer itself so you can crop or edit the layer without affecting the gradient. You can position and scale the gradient while the layer style dialog is still open by dragging the gradient in the document window and using the ...
There are 2 ways around this: Rasterize the gradient layer, so it becomes a bitmap layer. Convert the gradient layer to a smart object. This is better since you can always go back and edit the gradient when necessary.
In the Pathfinder palette's options, under Pahthfinder Options, there's a checkmark for an option 'Remove Redundant Points' that does exactly this:
Select "Delete Cropped Pixels" in the toolbar to save as the same format as the original. This only works if there are no layers. In that case, it will automatically save as PSD, unless you choose another format.
It comes down to understanding file formats. JPG, PNG, TIFF & GIF all have pixels and can become pixelated, no matter how large they are. EPS & SVG are (almost) always exclusively vectors and will never become pixelated. PDF can contain vectors and pixels, so it maintains whatever you put in there. In this case, an infinitely scaleable vector ...
The answer is simple. JPG and PNG are raster formats, they are made of pixels, the only time they are not "pixelated" is when you view them at the exact size you created them. So if you save your JPG at 100x100 pixels and on your screen it is 120x120 pixels, it will be "pixelated". PDF can contain vector data, vectors are not made of pixels but mathematical ...
What a mess, to lift ourselves out of the rabbit hole we need to a bit of a lengthy explanation. Warning wall of text! TL:DR Pixelation is not defined so it descries many unrelated/related problems, so explanations vary. On pixelation People see different things for different terms for multiple overlapping things. When people use the term "pixelated" ...
I would imagine the logo is vector based and not raster when you save it out as PDF. Without seeing the PDF it would be hard to really be able to help you. Also, if you're wanting to get the artwork printed I would advise you stay in vector and not raster. I don't have issues with logo pixelation. You could always test with PhotoShop by creating a ...
