How do I specify the size of my artboard in pixels with Adobe Illustrator?


I'm creating a graphic for a website. When trying it out, I realized it was a bit blurry.

I asked a graphic designer the reason it was blurry, and she had stated the graphic may need to be larger, and to try the width at 1000 pixels.

How can I set a custom size for my artboard, to a specific number of pixels in Adobe Illustrator?

Thank you for any help.

Simply enter the number of pixels in the measurement fields, with the Artboard Tool selected...

(You need first select the Artboard Tool to see the measurement fields in the Control Bar.)

You can insert any number and any measurement system and Illustrator will honor it. 1000px, 1000pt, 1000p0, 100", 1000cm, 1000mm, etc.

You can also do the same thing in the new document window... enter whatever value you want...

You can also simply draw a rectangle the size you want in an existing document, then choose Object > Artboards > Convert to Artboards from the menu.
