File formats for exporting artwork
You can export multiple artboards only to the following formats: SWF, JPEG, PSD, PNG, and TIFF.
1.AutoCAD Drawing and AutoCAD Interchange File (DWG and DXF)
AutoCAD Drawing is the standard file format for saving vector graphics created in AutoCAD. AutoCAD Interchange File is a drawing interchange format for exporting AutoCAD drawings to or importing drawings from other applications.
note: By default, white strokes or fills in Illustrator artwork are exported to the AutoCAD formats as black strokes or fills; and black strokes or fills in Illustrator are exported to the AutoCAD format as white.
A standard Windows image format. You can specify a color model, resolution, and anti-alias setting for rasterizing the artwork, as well as a format (Windows or OS/2) and a bit depth to determine the total number of colors (or shades of gray) that the image can contain. For 4‑bit and 8‑bit images using Windows format, you can also specify RLE compression.
3.Enhanced Metafile (EMF)
Widely used by Windows applications as an interchange format for exporting vector graphics data. Illustrator may rasterize some vector data when exporting artwork to EMF format.
4.JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group)
Commonly used to save photographs. JPEG format retains all color information in an image but compresses file size by selectively discarding data. JPEG is a standard format for displaying images over the web. You can also save an image as a JPEG file using the Save For Web & Devices command.
note: Artifacts, such as wave-like patterns or blocky areas of banding, are added to a file each time you save the file as a JPEG. Always save JPEG files from the original image, not from a previously saved JPEG.
Used with Mac OS graphics and page-layout applications to transfer images between applications. PICT is especially effective at compressing images with large areas of solid color.
A vector-based graphics format for interactive, animated web graphics. You can export artwork to the Flash (SWF) format for use in web design, and view the artwork in any browser equipped with the Flash Player plug‑in. You can also save an image as an SWF file using the Save For Web & Devices command, and you can export text as Flash Dynamic or Input text. In addition to exporting artwork in Flash format, you can copy Illustrator artwork and paste it into Flash. The fidelity of artwork is maintained across the clipboard.
You can create vector artwork for Flex skins in Adobe Illustrator and export it using the Create Flex Skin script.
The standard Photoshop format. If your artwork contains data that cannot be exported to Photoshop format, Illustrator preserves the appearance of the artwork by merging the layers in the document or by rasterizing the artwork. As a result, there may be times when layers, sublayers, compound shapes, and editable text are not preserved in the Photoshop file, even though you selected the appropriate export option.
8.PNG (Portable Network Graphics)
Used for lossless compression and for display of images on the web. Unlike GIF, PNG supports 24‑bit images and produces background transparency without jagged edges; however, some web browsers do not support PNG images. PNG preserves transparency in grayscale and RGB images. You can also save an image as a PNG file using the Save For Web & Devices command.
Designed for use on systems that use the Truevision® video board. You can specify a color model, resolution, and anti-alias setting for rasterizing the artwork, as well as a bit depth to determine the total number of colors (or shades of gray) that the image can contain.
10.Text Format (TXT)
Used to export text in an illustration to a text file.
11.TIFF (Tagged-Image File Format)
Used to exchange files between applications and computer platforms. TIFF is a flexible bitmap image format supported by most paint, image-editing, and page-layout applications. Most desktop scanners can produce TIFF files.
12.Windows Metafile (WMF)
An intermediate exchange format for 16‑bit Windows applications. WMF format is supported by almost all Windows drawing and layout programs. However, it has limited vector graphics support, and wherever possible, EMF format should be used in place of WMF format.
Save Artboards as Separate Files
Suppose you’re working on an Illustrator project that has multiple artboards in a single Illustrator file. Someone asks you to send the original content from one of those artboards. Here’s how you can split artboards into separate Illustrator documents:
- Open the Illustrator file with multiple artboards.
- Choose File – Save As, and choose a name and location to save the file. Make sure that you save as Illustrator (.AI), and in the Illustrator Options dialog box, select Save Each Artboard as a Separate File. You can even choose to save them all or just a range
To be sure the file you “File/Saved” retains this transparency….
1. Go to File – Save for Web…
2. Save as a PNG (Portable Network Graphics) file. You have two options: PNG-8, and PNG-24. The main difference between them is that, like GIF, PNG-8 comprises a maximum of 256 colors.PNG-24 is a lossless format and supports up to 16 million colors. Once chosen, make sure the Transparency checkbox is enabled (it normally is, by default).
3. You can also save it as a Graphics Interchange Format file (GIF file). As with the PNG file, make sure that the Transparency checkbox is enabled.
4. Success! The background of your PNG or GIF file is now transparent, and can be placed atop other objects.
