I am working on a Logo and am attempting to make the background transparent. Unfortunately, I have zero graphic design experience and am unable to figure out how to get this done.
Could someone walk me through how to do this?
When you start a new document, the page appears to be white, but it is in fact transparent with the default settings. Then, let`s say you have this circle (replace with your logo):
Then, you choose File > Save for Web, choose PNG-24 with 'Transparency' checked and you get a transparent PNG logo. The chess-looking squares behind the circle actually represent the transparent background.
Lastly, save your work as an AI file, which is again transparent by default, unless you place and actual white box behind the artwork.
