- Now the one problem with our PNG graphic…that we created in the previous movie…is that it's pretty darn small.…Now here I am inside of Photoshop,…if I drop down to this dock item right here…in the lower left corner of the window…and click on it,…notice that this image measures 964 pixels wide…by 672 pixels tall.…That's a total of just more than 640,000 pixels,…so in other words, this isn't even a megapixel image.…And of course, we've got a lot…of empty space around the logo.…In other words, this logo is pretty big by web standards,…but it's very small if we wanna project it on a big display,…or if we wanna blow it up and back light it.…
So let's say you wanna create a larger PNG graphic…then what you do is you switch back over to Illustrator,…and again you wanna make sure…that your text is aligned to the pixel grid,…then you return to the File menu…and choose Save for Web.…And you should see that all your previous settings…are still in place,…that is the file Format is set to PNG 24,…the Transparency check box is turned on,…
