Pixelation Problem

I'm encountering a persistent issue in Adobe Illustrator where everything I create, including vectors, text, and shapes, appears pixelated. No matter what I do, the final output is not crisp and sharp as expected.

Here are the steps I've taken to troubleshoot the issue:

  1. Checked document settings to ensure proper dimensions and resolution.
  2. Confirmed that anti-aliasing is enabled in preferences.
  3. Reset Illustrator preferences to default settings.
  4. Verified view settings and ensured I'm viewing artwork at 100% zoom level.
  5. Checked document raster effects settings and adjusted resolution as needed.
  6. Ensured proper export settings when saving artwork.

Despite these efforts, the pixelation issue persists and occurs consistently across different documents and projects.

Has anyone else encountered a similar issue? I would greatly appreciate any insights or suggestions on how to resolve this issue and achieve crisp, high-quality output in Illustrator.

Thank you in advance for your help!

You are not in Pixel Preview?

This is not version CS6 running on a modern computer?

 

Can you please show a screenshot?

Here is an example of a logo I'm working on, whether I save it as png, eps, or jpeg, or I save for web, it comes out pixelated and not as crisp/sharp as it looks on the artboard in Illustrator.

PNG and JPEG are pixel files. So there will always be pixels in them and you cannot expect them looking sharp in any size.

 

With the EPS: it depends on exactly how that is built. Just paths? Or effects? Also: which appliction are you using to open it?

Hello @sabrinaa98,

Thanks for reaching out. As Monika suggested, raster files will look pixelated if the resolution is too low or if we are too zoomed in. Would you mind sharing screenshots or screen recordings of your workflow and the settings used so that we can better assist you?

Also, try the suggestions shared here (https://adobe.ly/3VIE4Nt) and let us know if it helps.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

 

Thanks,

Anubhav
