I've created a logo in Adobe Illustrator at the exact dimensions in inches that I want the final result to have (to print on a t shirt). I'd now like to take this logo into Photoshop for post-processing, then finally export it to a png at 300 ppi. The world of resolutions is new to me, however, and I want to make sure I get it right. If I export an image directly from Illustrator at 300 ppi, the image is far bigger than it should be when I open it in Photoshop. If I export from Illustrator at screen resolution (72 ppi), it opens at the correct size in Photoshop, and I know I can change the Photoshop document's resolution to 300 ppi afterwards while maintaining the correct dimensions, but I'm not sure if initially importing a 72 ppi image will result in a loss of quality. I'm hoping someone with some experience in this area would be able to enlighten me on what I should be doing at the following steps:
- Exporting the initial image from Illustrator
- Importing the initial image into Photoshop
- Exporting the final image from Photoshop
Any input is greatly appreciated!
