Hi, can anyone suggest a process please. I created a logo that is about 1" x 0.4" wide in illustrator. I exported to PNG file with highest resolution. The exported PNG is blurry. Is there a way to export without loosing quailty? Thanks
PNG is a raster based file format. Each pixel you export can only have one color. Check out your logo and the number of pixels and just consider if it can work at all.
What do you need the PNG for? Would any other file format be more suitable?
Hi Monika, the PNG file is inserted in the Mac Mail signature as my logo when sending out emails.
With that detailed file I don't think your plan can work at all.
Design the logo in a way that small sizes work. Or just don't put it in your email. Images are turned off by default in most email software anyway.
Could you please show the screenshot of the logo in Illustrator, PNG in 1:1 scale, and PNG in size that you look at? Raster images look quite different depending on the scale.
It's natural. The raster images in the browsers are shown pixel-to-pixel unless the soft use any scaling algorithms. Mailing services do this. So, if you export your logo with 300PPI, it will be scaled to a small size as needed in your signature, and look bad due to the sensitivity of raster images to scaling. Export it with 72PPi. It will look bad in big size but very well in the small size in the signature.
As far as I know, most of the mailing services don't allow to use of SVG (vector image) format, but if yours does it, you can try to cave your logo in SVG.
But, as Monika said, these small images generally just clog up the letter attachment set and annoy the receiver.
Thanks for your feed back.
Please answer Monika's question: What do you need the PNG for? Would any other file format be more suitable?
Having a vector file format should solve the issue.
