I've made a circular logo design in illustrator using the 'type on a path' feature. To type in the bottom of the circle I used a oval path. Now, when I go to export it as an .eps or .jpeg it includes the space for the transparent path even though it is outside of the artboard. Is there a way to no include this path in an export/saved file? Here'a picture of what it looks like in illustrator

The second picture is what it looks like when I export it with the extra space on top

  • When you export as jpeg or png, choose the option to "use artboards".

  • Unfortunately, clip to artboard will add transparent pixels in areas where art may not be exactly at artboard edges.

1 Answer 1

  • Select > Select All
  • Type > Create Outlines
  • File > Export
  • Edit > Undo Create Outlines

By creating outlines you eliminate the path the type is sitting on and the export won't have any problems.

Be certain to Undo after the export... or copy/paste to a new file then create outlines and export and then merely don't save the new file.
