Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting a PDF for your client, part of Illustrator for Web Design: Aesthetics.
- Like it or not PDF proofs are still probably…the quickest and easiest way to get approval of a design.…So, sending out a PDF is something that…you need to know how to do and optimizing it…is something that you ought to do in order…to save your client the frustration of…a large download from their email attachments.…So, I'm gonna go ahead and show you how to…quickly export a PDF from Illustrator.…Go to the File menu and then you're…gonna go down to Save As.…Once you go down to Save As you're just gonna go,…and I'm just gonna put this on my desktop for now.…Choose PDF from the Format drop-down and click Save.…
And then what we're gonna do in the PDF preset here,…we're gonna drop this down and we're…gonna select Smallest File Size.…Chances are the client just wants to…see spatial relationships, color combinations…and all that, they don't need a highly detailed…design that they can zoom in and zoom out on.…They just want a general representation…of what this is gonna look like on the Web.…And since this is gonna be optimized for the Web…
