I need to create a PNG image for a website widget. It contains a background, some icons and some texts.
I created it on Illustrator and tried exporting it many ways, but it always ends up being very pixelated and the texts are not neat at all... I vectorized the texts and tried exporting at 72 dpi but it was extremely pixelated..
I'm not very familiar with resolutions and all. Could you give me some advice? How can I export this PNG at this size (260x160px) and have it neat?
Please share your image. It may simply be that 260 x 160 px is too small a size to accomodate the level of detail you want.
Share the actual export from Illustrator rather than a screenshot.
Don't expect to be able to read anything at your desired size.
You might get better results with different anti-aliasing settings, but apart from that it looks as I would expect a 260 x 180 px image to look.
