Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Scaling a design to avoid antialiasing, part of Creating and Adapting a Logo.
- In this movie, I'll show you how to scale…your graphic here, inside Illustrator,…so that you can export it as a layered PSD file…without any unnecessary anti-aliasing.…Now, I've created this slide for you…because we are gonna have to figure out…some specific math here.…And so, the back-story is that, when exporting…a layered PSD file, Illustrator's always going to…anti-alias at resolutions above 72 pixels per inch.…So, as long as you stick with the resolution…of 72 ppi, you're fine, but anything else…introduces anti-aliasing along your…perpendicular edges.…
So, if you want a higher resolution,…you have to scale the graphic before exporting it.…For example, let's say you want…a resolution of 300 pixels per inch.…In that case, you take 300 and you divide it by 72,…and you get 4.166 repeating.…Or, if you want to express it as a percentage,…you take the decimal point and you move it…over two digits and you get 416.7%…which means that our 964 by 672-point document…needs to grow as follows.…
We take 964, multiply it times 4.167…
