I have a simple b/w logo in illustrator, and want to save this for web use. I am new to web, just savvy in print :(... what is the easiest way to save this file with a transparent background so that it can be placed on various backgrounds? Thank you.
File > Save For Web...
Choose PNG24 for the format and click OK.
Export it as .png file.File->Export, save as type--> .png, untick Use Artboad if you don't want whole art board to be exported.
