I initially drew a picture in Illustrator at 700 x 1270 pixels at 300 ppi. Unfortunately when converting...the pixels come out at 2915 X 5289 because of the 300 ppi. This is waaaay too big for the project I am working on. We need the pixels to be EXACTLY 700 X 1270.
72 ppi does not have this pixel conversion issue. I want to resize my illustrator document at 72 ppi. I know from now on I need to just start ALL my documents out in 72 ppi. It makes the pixels accurate to the initial size.
Now the only problem is with this first file I have at 300 ppi. When I try to just copy the inital illustrator file (2915 X 5289) into another illustrator document with 72 ppi- it automatically converts the ppi to 300 making the image larger again...
How can I just change the ppi of the illustrator document? Like resizing a photoshop document to be smaller? Is this possible?
