Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting your logo as a PNG graphic, part of Creating and Adapting a Logo.
- Now that our nicely shaded device independent…logo is complete, let's say we want to hand it…off to a colleague or a web designer or even the client.…Well, we could give them the native AI file,…the very thing that I'm looking at.…You need Illustrator to edit this document,…but you can open it in Acrobat as I have done here…or in the free Adobe reader,…which you can download from Adobe.com,…or in Preview on the Mac,…or inside any other program that supports PDF.…But let's say you're looking for…absolute, maximum compatibility.…You want to create a file that can be displayed…on anything, any platform out there.…
Then your best bet is to export the logo.…Not as an EPS file, the days of EPS are over.…But rather, as a PNG file.…Now, PNG is a pixel based format…so you don't want to use it for print,…but it's great for screen graphics.…And here's how it works.…First of all, make sure that you've saved…any changes to your document.…Then, go ahead and choose Save for Web…which allows you to preview your…PNG image as you create it.…
