If you do not intend to save for web purposes go to
File > Export > Select your prefferred format (jpg for example)
Before clicking save, go to the bottom of the dialog box and check use artboard, deselect all and select Range. Export your file.
That is. CS4 only
On CS3 ypu must create crop marks and export normally
Thanks for the response, but I am trying to save for web purposes.
Here's another example of what's happening.
1. Here's the file as seen in Illustrator (CS4):
2. Then, here it is in the export dialog:
How do I keep anti-aliasing but not have that white edge?
Thanks so much, this is so maddening to me, and I know that it's something I am not getting.
JPG does not retain transparency. So, to export transparency instead of that withe (I think represents the color of artboard), choose gif or png. and double check its configuration
Second, As illustrator is a vector program, your shapes will appears always fine, even the zoom is 1600%.
So...What´s the size of your artboard? Have you checked it?
If its right, go to save for web and devices. Look at left you have a tab called Image Size. There is an option called percent. It should be 100%, or Illustrator will resize your slice before saving..
Tell me if it´s all right
I am exporting as png. It's not as much that I want a transparency, it's that I don't get why there is this "bleed" creeping in on the left. Let me attach another screenshot:
Why isn't the left part solid like the rest? Where is this bleed coming from? I have "Clip to Artboard" checked, and Image Size is 100%.
It´s normal when you have anti-alias. It´s 1 pt 50% transparent to smooth your shape and background but it only appears like your image if raster image is very very zoomed in...because the image is too litle..
What´s the size in pixels of your artboard? Tell me please
This is how small I need it for the website. ..
Is there a way around this?
Thanks very much for your help with this.
5x26 is really a thumbnail...it´s very small.....Surely if you need just a small "icon", you´re right...Note if you open the exported png file in photoshop and zoom at 100% you have no problems....(ani-alias is your friend, but the problem is that you have a little image and are increasing its size too much.
Just try this test (it´s just a test): Create an artboard 500x260, make the shape and export. Notice when you preview over browsers you wont see that anti-alias (anti-alias is there but is not visible. If you zoom in too much you can see too).
Would you like this draw for an icon?
