Hi, I'm trying to upload my logo to instagram and when I do it it gets pixelated and looks really bad. Is there any recomendation on how to solve this?
My logo looks like this, 110 by 110
If you saved it as JPG, try saving it as PNG.
I tried this with 640 by 640 and didn't work it still has some artifacts
Don't expect to be able to zoom in.
Your logo is not suitable for this small size. Less tiny detail will work better.
I know, the problem is that it has a lot of artifacts when I upload it
Does it have those artifacts before you upload it, if you view the exported image?
If not, it's something Instagram itself is doing.
Then there is little you can do in Illustrator.
Some colour combinations may make artifacts more or less apparent. You could try experimenting with different colours to see if you can reduce it that way.
I tried with a white background, the artifacts are less but it doesn't look nice
Here are a few things to look at:
I did this and it didn't work, and I couldn't find the option to disble high quality image processing.
Export to Png with 300 ppi. (for 110px)
and i suggest to not use 110 X 110.. use 1000pxx1000 px so you can export to 72 px
so you can have best quality
If you want a specific pixel size, set your artboard to that size and export at 72 PPI, not 300.
i prefer 300 ppi, when you upload the file, it will be rendered by default to 72 ppi. but it will look in good quality.
If you export a 1000 px x 1000 px artboard from Illustrator at 300 PPI, you will get a 4167 px image.
If you want a 1000 px image, you need to export at 72 PPI.
It's not about what you 'prefer'. It's about getting the dimensions you specify.
I 'prefer' based on my 18 years experience...
You 'prefer' inadvertently making images 4.17 times the size you specify?
Yes i agree, for 1000 px image i need to export ar 72 ppi defently
but 110 px, 300 px NOT 72 px
most of social profiles, but not instagram, when you click on the profile picture it will be bigger, so it will be pixlated. right?? so making bigger size and it will be rendered to small one.
