Learn two methods for turning your vector-based art files into high resolution, pixel-based images using both Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.
- [Voiceover] When I create vector-painted illustrations,…they can be somewhat complex,…meaning I would never want to give…a very complex vector file using all these brushes…with all their various settings and all the various layers…and provide that to the vendor as the final art.…I'm just asking for problems if I do that.…You could run into some PostScript problems as well…if they try to run the file…because the file size can be pretty large.…
So what I tend to do,…not just for vector-painted illustrations,…but any illustration that is gonna be printed…in a final offset printed way or digital for that matter,…is I like to provide a high resolution CMYK-based TIF image.…So there's two ways that I go about or you could go about…rasterizing your final usage of your artwork.…I want to show you those two ways…because I believe there's one way that works better…than another and it only makes sense if we can compare 'em,…but I want to walk you through the two ways you can do that.…
