Hi!

Can someone please suggest why does Illustrator create so unreasonable large JPG while exporting for screens and how do I make them smaller? For example, the same artboard file exported with EFS goes to 1.4Mbytes (Jpg-80 preset) while good old Save for Web with 80% Quality makes it 400kbytes only.

Without any info about the actual content, resolution settings and other stuff we can't really tell you much. Simply sounds like there's a tom of extra metadata and/ or the settings are off.

The content does not matter now. It has always been like that since EFS was released no matter what. I can not to see any related settings in the export dialog but there are not much of settings actually.  That's why I'm asking for help.

Here is the sample: EFS produced 276 Kb file, SWF: 191 Kb

Hello Andrii Kulikov,

 

Thanks for reaching out. As suggested by Mylenium, there could be various reasons for the file size to be more significant when using Export for Screens. Would you mind sharing the exported files so we can check them on our end?

 

Looking forward to your response.

 

Thanks,

Anubhav

Hello @Andrii Kulikov,

 

Thanks for confirming that, and sorry for the late response. Kindly try changing the settings for Export for Screens to use Progressive instead of Baseline for the compression settings and check if it helps.
