How to resize an EPS file in Illustrator to fit a pixel size?
I'm very new to Illustrator. Having used Photoshop all my life, vector art is something very new to me. I have this company logo in EPS format. I want to use AI to resize the image to a certain pixel size in order to fit properly on a website. I've only drawn some trees and landscape using AI, doing this has me totally lost. Any help would be appreciated.
I think the best solution in this case would be to use Illustrator's â€œView->Pixel Previewâ€ mode if applicable (I don't know which version you've got there). This way you'll have much greater control over final results, than by any form of automatic rasterization (e.g. â€œSave for Webâ€). Think of it as of manual â€œpixel perfext hintingâ€.
Also using â€œpixelsâ€ as â€œdocument unitsâ€, as Mark Edwards suggested, would be a good thing. It will make it possible to set artboard to exact needed size in pixels.
Of course â€œSave for Webâ€ still would be useful, with its possibility to provide quick preview and optimization of resultant file.
TIP (mentioned in some comment here): you can scale objects proportionally by entering in info or transform panel their new width/height and confirming your value with â€œCtrl/Command+Enterâ€ combo.
