Chapter 28. MOVING TO THE WEB > Exporting as Web Graphics

Exporting as Web Graphics

FreeHand lets you export your files in three popular Web formats. This means you can convert a print logo into a Web graphic. (For more informa tion on exporting, see Chapter 27, “ Exporting.”)

To export a file for the Web:

1.
Create the artwork you want to turn into a Web graphic.

2.
Choose File > Export. This opens the Export Document dialog box 7.

Figure 7. The Export Document dialog box lets you save files in common Web formats.


3.
Choose one of the following from the Save as type menu:

  • GIF is usually for images with flat color.

  • JPEG is used for photographs or images with many blends or gradients.

  • PNG is not often used. Choose it only if you are sure your viewers will have the proper browsers.

4.
Click the Setup button. On the Windows platform, this opens the Bitmap Export Defaults dialog box 8. On the Macintosh platform, these options are part of the setup for each of the file formats.

Figure 8. (Win) The Bitmap Export Defaults dialog box allows you to set the overall options for exporting files into different Web formats.
