My file and artboard changes size when I export

Tags: #illustrator #size #export #px

I all, I'm working on a file that I have setup as 1045 px by 154 px. When I export this file to jpeg, png or bmp the file become over 4000 px wide. This is likely an easy thing I'm missing. Can anyone shed some light?

 

Thank you

Nelson

    The size of your file in pixels depends on the resolution you select on export. Set it to 72 ppi

    Well, have you  tried with a resolution of 72 ppi?

    Export with 72 ppi from Illustrator and use Photoshop to change the resolution.

    Scale it in PS BEFORE converting from 8-bit.

     

    -OR-

     

    Turn off Anti-Alias artwork in prefs, set your display in Illustrator to Actual Size and take a screenshot. Paste into PS, crop and convert to 1-bit.

     

    If you don't want to turn off AA, in Illy, before pasting into PS, then after pasting, flatten the file and use Image > Adjustments > Thresshold to custom fine-tune how the AA pixels are turned either black or white.

    WHat exactly do you mean with "decent quality"? It's 1-bit after all.
