Chapter 7. Using Adobe Illustrator CS2 > Saving/Exporting Files

Saving/Exporting Files

Illustrator can save files in various formats, each suited for different uses. Illustrator can also export files in a wide range of formats, which is one of the reasons some people consider Illustrator a valuable utility—even if they never actually draw anything with it.

Save

Generally, Illustrator uses the Save command to save files that are “round-trippable,” meaning that those files can be reopened in Illustrator with no loss of editability. To save a file, choose File, Save; then from the pop-up menu, choose a format to save your file in (see Figure 7.210). If you want to save an existing file with different options, choose File, Save As.
