Pixelated Exported PNGs

Hi everyone,

I recently updated to the 2018 release of Illustrator and it seems to have reset all my settings. I am trying to export a PNG image (File > Export As ...) and keep manually setting the dpi from 72 to 500. However, whenever Illustrator imports the image the PNG is super pixelated; I assume it keeps exporting them at 72 dpi. How do I resolve this issue? I've gone through a ton of discussion boards and nothing has helped. Any advise is much appreciated.

Edit: I realize that technically PNGs are pixelated. The exported image, however, is extremely low resolution and blurry. I have exported images hundreds of times before and have never ran into this issue.

Please update to version 22.0.1 to get the fix for this issue.

Thank You.

Warm Regards,

Hi! I'm having the same problem and my Illustrator version is 24.1.3. Whenever I try to export this image that is only vector and text, the PNG remains pixelated, even when I export as 300dpi. If I check the pixel preview, the image appears pixelated on my screen. I searched everywhere and couldn't find a definitive solution. Does anyone have a tip for this problem? It's really annoying.

 

Thanks!

PNG is a pixel file format. So of course there will be pixels in it. You can't enlarge it or expect it to behave like a vector image.

I see the pixels even at 100% zoom, that is the problem. 😞
