Discover the optimal document setup settings for web-based work in Adobe Illustrator.
- [Lecturer] I wanna show you how you can optimize…your document for Web based work.…When you create a new Illustrator document…the very first thing that you're going to be confronted…with is the new document window.…This is going to ask you a bunch a questions.…The important thing here is that you know…what you're designing for.…Are you designing a Web page or a poster.…Is your design going to be viewed mostly online…or in printed form?…In this case we're going to be focusing on the Web.…Because Illustrator doesn't have the ability…to create elastic layouts in terms of responsive design…it helps to make sure that you think in terms…of general sizes rather than actually targeting…a specific size.…
You won't know what this design is actually going…to look like or behave like when you get it into a browser…since the browser can be a different width.…So locking yourself into a physical pixel dimension…can be a little bit frustrating.…In Illustrator, you do have some tabs…that are going to offer you presets…that are specific to mobile and Web sizes.…
