Hello, I have done some research on this already but nothing that i have found has helped me so far, so i decided i would post this up for help. Thank you in advance to those taking the time to read this
I have a banner to create and send off for a virtual fair, and they specifically ask for the size 326x111 and png format.
I created the banner, which includes some images with clipping masks and some text. The artboard is RGB and sized 326x111. I have tried saving for web to PNG24 and exporting as PNG (using artboard area), and in both cases the size is kept, but it comes out blurry in the png file
This is how it shows in illustrator
And this is how it shows in PNG (opened up in paint)
I have tried blowing it up five times and then resizing the png file and it distorts it again
I have also tried the suggestion of opening up the EPS version in Photoshop and then saving it in PNG and it comes out blurry again
When i try pixel preview, it shows the problem, but i dont know how to solve it.
If anyone has any idea, it would be great help.
Thanks everyone and keep safe!
This can't be solved. You need to turn on pixel preview. Then design it in a way that text is legible. In the character panel at the bottom right there is a menu that sets the anti-aliasing. You might want to experiment with different settings. But that's it.
Right, but the issue isnt only for the text part, the images come out blury as well...

The problem is possibly that your monitor uses twice as many pixels to show the design in Illustrator.
To get the same quality on export you need to use export for screens and choose 2x.
The website builders need to scale the result to look good on high def screens.
Thank you, i do not find Export for Screens, i use Illustrator CS6 😞
144 ppi is what 2X means in export for screens.
