What I am trying to do:
I'm trying to save multiple versions of icons in a variety of formats.
How do you further specify controls around how different files will be saved when using "export for screens"?
Love the new feature for illustrator "export for screens", however I'm at a bit of a crossroads when trying to specify how I want my artboards to be saved.
I work on icons and logos that often need to be built for print and digital (CMYK and RGB). Upon discovering this feature I decided I would build my file for print (CMYK) initially, with the assumption that conversion to digital RGB would be easier than doing the reverse. I have 1 file in CMYK format and the same file converted to RGB.
I am exporting to PDF, SVG, JPG 100 and PNG.
Everything works great except for the following happening to bitmap images (JPG, PNG):
The inability to control both resolution and dimension
A 1px transparent / white border added to the top and right side.
What I've tried:
File > Export > Export for Screens > Format Settings
File > Export > Export As
File > Document Setup > General > Transparency and Overprint options > Preset >
Changing artboard sizes and document measurements (inches to pixels)
File > Preferences
Edit > My Settings > Export Settings
Effects > Document Raster Effects Settings > Resolution
Semi - solutions:
Hopefully I'm missing something simple here, but I'd rather avoid a solution like: make an artboard for each size you want to export, then use the Export for Screens resolution option.
I know I can use artboards in Photoshop which may be the most viable solution if Illustrator is too much of a hassle.
Potential feature requests
If it is simply they haven't fully built out this new feature yet, or I'm not using it for its intended purpose, let me know.
I would request you to share your suggestions and feature request to our Adobe Illustrator Feedback.
This is the best way of communicating to the Engineering and Product Management teams regarding issues and suggestions so they can be implemented in future releases.
Let me know if you have any further questions.
Thanks Srishti, I will go ahead and do so.
