When exporting to a png or eps, the text in the file are blurry and i cannot use for anything. You can see how jagged the edges are.
I agree with the other commenter regarding the EPS file. EPS should be vector and should be displaying without pixelation if saved correctly. However regarding the PNG file, I've been experiencing the same problem for a long while now.
These claims by some Adobe reps that you shouldn't expect a crisp raster image is nonsense. I'm able to achieve a perfectly acceptable sharp looking raster image by taking screenshots of my vector logos, yet the png and jpg exports via Photoshop and Illustrator are a blurry mess (especially noticeable in smaller sizes, where the files are completely unusable). If my Mac can achieve an acceptable raster image through a screenshot, then why can't the worlds premiere design software?
Users continue to complain about this, yet nothing is ever done about it. I've had 2 Adobe reps screenshare as I revealed multiple bugs in Illustrator, one of which was the blurry exports. They watched my workflow to ensure I was doing it properly, and confirmed that the level of blur was unacceptable. The first rep I spoke with months ago mentioned he would get to the bottom of this, yet I never heard back. I'm hoping the second rep gets to the bottom of the problem.
In the meantime I've had to resort to screenshots for my client's web files. Obviously this isn't an acceptable solution however, as screenshots don't allow for precise centering or background transparency. I have clients complaining about blurry web images, and I have no solution. It's unacceptable.
Please stop assuming this as user error or just the reality of raster imagery. As mentioned, if a screenshot can achieve perfectly fine raster previews, Adobe certainly should be able to. FYI: Applying sharpening to the saved images doesn't help.
One of the attached images is of a screenshot and the other is an export from Illustrator. It appears this forum upscales images, which doesn't allow for an accurate depiction however. I also notice the screenshot doesn't look as crisp as it does on my computer or when posting online, so I'm guessing the thread may be compressing them as well.
A png file is pixel based, like photoshop.
An eps will display the font correctly if you save in a vector format (ILLUSTRATOR EPS).
