How to save an Illustrator document at a specific PPI and pixel size
In Adobe Illustrator CC 2014 I have designed an illustration with the instructed dimension of 300 Ã— 400 pixels, but I have also been instructed to use 96 PPI instead of 72 PPI for web publishing of this illustration. NOTE:- The company who will publish this illustration on web asked me to send the PNG in 96ppi instead of 72ppi.
I don't see how to set a custom PPI while creating a new document. However, I can change the PPI from document setup after opening the document.
But, saving the PNG at 96 PPI increases the dimension from 300 Ã— 400 pixels to 533 Ã— 400 pixels and saving for web downgrades the PPI from 96 to 72.
I have to submit the final PNG illustration at 96 PPI and dimension 300 Ã— 400 pixels. How can I do this?
Basically whoever instructed you to do this doesn't know what they are talking about. PPI has no affect on how anything is shown on a screen, only pixels matter.
If you absolutely have to submit a PNG at 96 PPI, simply...
- Export from Illustrator at 100% 72 PPI.
- Open the image in Photoshop.
- Open the Image Size dialog (Image â†’ Image Size...).
- Uncheck "Resample Image".
- Change "Resolution" to 96 Pixels/Inch.
- OK then Save.
