I am more familiar with Photoshop than Illustrator, but I seriously can't figure this out on either platform. I'll take advice for either. I need to make a website banner that is 1000 px x 175 px. I start off by creating a new document with these dimensions with all the standard settings. I need to incorporate a logo into the banner, so I import it into the document. The logo file is .eps and it is way larger than 1000 x 175. so I have to size it down a good bit. In photoshop it gets very blurry (which from what I can tell, really can't be helped). But in illustrator, it still looks great once I resize it down. But once I export the final banner image as a png, the final image is super blurry! Even though I was working with a document that is the correct size the whole time. Everything I have found online only gives advice on how to resize images LARGER without losing quality, but I am having the opposite problem-- I can't resize my logo SMALLER without losing quality. I'm probably just not aware of some fundamental law of pixels, but nothing I read online has been helpful. Thanks for any advice!!

Is that a pixel based EPS or vector based?

How much detail is in it?

175 pixels is not very much, so don't expect to be able to have a lot of crispy detail in it.

Inside Illustrator you can zoom. But once this is rendered into pixels, it won't be possible to zoom.

Which version of Illustrator are you using?

 

Also, can you share a sample .ai file and include some very clear instructions about the issue you are talking about?

Sorry, I don't know how to tell if it is pixel based or vector based. I attached two versions of the logo that I was given. I also attached the png exported version so you can see how blurry it becomes.

Please, do not mark my answer as the "correct answer".

 

That may be misleading, just because there is no solution so far.

 

Thank you
