I have been working on a couple of static ads for a geo fencing campaign, I was given the specs 300 x 50 and 320x 50. I created the documents under the web settings at 72 ppi. and the problem is that when i export the files it is very blurry and you can't hardly read anything it looks bad. I need this ads to be clear as I see them on the art board. but I can't export on High Res because it will blow up the dimensions of the file. I am using the CC version .
Also I tried creating the file from scratch on Photoshop but everything looks blurry from the get go.
Please help, I don't normally work with this type of files so I am sure I'm missing something.
Make sure you have a realistic view of what text quality you can expect in such a tiny image. View it at its correct size, don't zoom in. And don't use JPEG, above all.
if not JPEG, What type of file do you recommend?
PNG. And don’t zoom in to see it better !
View at 100% and use View > Pixel Preview to get a better idea of the final export.
I am having exactly the same issue. I found your post searching for the answer in Google.
Could you finally solve it??
The solution is most probably the 300 x 50 pixels is tiny. And if you don't design appropriately then you get blurry results.
Hi Monika! Thanks for your answer.
Yes, I totally agree with you that the size es tiny, 300px is very little.
I thought that, nevertheless, there was something I was missing that made the output banner look better and not so pixelated (may be the file type -jpg or png-, may be some tricks like exporting it in a bigger size and resampling it down later, etc.).
