I've got a question regarding exporting PNG files from Ai Illustrator as I'm having troubles getting sharp looking results.
I'm preparing files for Society6 print-on-demand website and aiming to supply them as PNGs so that I can have transparency in my designs.
I'm looking as an example at a file for mugs 4600 x 2000 px PNG at 300 dpi. The artboard is 1104 x 480 px (to factor in that design is exported at 300 dpi).
Here are the steps I'm taking:
- Artboard 1104 x 480 px File -> Export -> Export As. PNG / High 300 ppi / Art Optimised (Supersampling) / Transparent
Check the file size and resolution 4601 x 2001 px (I'm ignoring the fact that file size is 1px more), 300 dpi
Open the file in the "Preview" app on Mac. Choose to display it at Actual Size. Getting closer to the screen I still can see the pixelation :( It's especially visible around the question marks.
- When I designed the pattern everything was outlined.
I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here, I'd expect the PNG to be quite sharp given it's exported from Ai Illustrator and all objects have been outlined.
Have you come across this before? Do you know what might be going wrong here?
I would highly appreciate any help with this. Thank you so much for your time. Dasha
