I'm having an issue with exporting a logo from illustrator to png. My document raster effects setting is at 600 ppi, my document is set to high resolution. When I open the image (4" wide -- fonts converted to outline) the image looks fine. When I drop it into an email it looks like garbage. Just good old apple mail and I have never had this problem before. Any suggestions welcome! (blurry image is what I dropped into my mail program, the other is the actual image. This could be a compression issue with mail, but wanted to make sure before I went down that path.

It looks fine when I drop your first image into an Apple mail message.

Did you select Actual size in the message?

Raster effects settings is for raster effects (Blur, Drop shadow,...) used with vector art.

Plays no effect when exporting vector artwork to a raster (pixel based) format.

How do you control de resolution of artwork exported as PNG ?

Using the command File>Export>Export As

There you have some settings like Resolution that will have an impact you will see in the exported raster format file.

Try to use 72/150/300 ppi and compare the difference in quality (and also on size). 

You can also used the legacy, but valid and useful Export>Save for Web option.

Thanks for the response! That's how I typically save my PNG's when I'm not making a web graphic. I'm wondering if it's something with apple mail compressing the items.

I have the same issue - working either in Photoshop or InDesign... Exporting (with legacy or export as) as PNG or JPG results in very blurry results. I've been doing this for 10+ years w/o any issues. I'm using InDesign 24.1.2 (64bit) on Windows. I tried the same with InDesign 24.0.1 (64bit) on Windows and there it perfectly works. PNG and JPG are sharp. Same settings. So, I assume it's a general issie 😞
