hi i got this homework and i dont know how to do this because my professor Ai is not the latest and mine is.... help please

Type Poster Critique! Insert Image (.png) of your poster design (Make .png in Illustrator; Menu > File > Save for Web > PNG-24 > 40%)

when i put 40% on image size it turns blurry. what can i do?

From your story, we can see that there are the following conditions

  1.  The image file must have been scaled down to 40% of the finished size.
  2. Create only in Illustrator.

Since there is no resolution requirement, why don't you make it a high resolution PNG file?

 

  1. Once the AI data of the poster is saved.
  2. Create a new document that is reduced in size to 40% of the poster.
  3. Link the poster data and reduce it to 40%.
  4. File > Export > Export As...
  5. Export a high-resolution (300ppi) png file.

Hi, debbiea.
If you make it a bitmap image like a ping, you can't help but get blurry. What's more, the smaller it is, the more blurry it becomes.
Shouldn't it be a PDF if you're submitting it to a professor?
If the professor insists on a bitmap image scaled down to 40%, why don't you submit a blurry ping, a PDF and two?

 

The other way to do it is to export it in high resolution and resize it to 40% in Photoshop, etc. One way to do this is to resize the image using the Nearest Neighbor method.
It doesn't always work out.

I don't understand. Photoshop can save both PNG and PDF as needed.
