I have designed a logo in Illustrator and now need to make it a png file. When I use the Export to png option the colours are different to 'Save for web and devises' option. Which is the best way to get a file that is correct in colour and the best all round?
Any help will be much appreciated! Please!
Well I do not know if save for the web is the answer but if you designed a log in Illustrator that is also going to printed you
are probably working CMYK and the export to png is a manual process not like the save for the device and web.
So you would first have to convert to color space of the document to RGB then make certain the profile is sRGB
and then export it.
Here is a png of the art saved for the web from a cmyk document.
So the question is what do you mean by better?
Is this the procedure you have followed?
I will point out if you keep changing the profiles that might mess up the color so once you get your sRGB document correct you want to save it as a separate ai file.
As Wade already pointed out, you have a problem with using wrong color profiles and color spaces, not per se an issue with web output from AI. Make sure you work in sRGB all the time and use your monitor profile as the proof profile, nothing else.
