How to Change to 72 PPI on Adobe Illustrator


How an image appears onscreen depends on its resolution. The resolution of a document in Adobe InDesign is measured in pixels per inch, or PPI. The resolution affects the size and level of detail of an image displayed on a monitor. The PPI should be adjusted to match what is required for a project. A resolution of 72 PPI is common for images intended to be displayed on websites.

  • Select all of the contents of the document by clicking on "Select" and choosing "All."

  • Click on "Object" and choose "Rasterize." Select "72 PPI" and click "OK."

  • Click on "File" and choose "Save a Copy." According to the Adobe Illustrator website, saving in AI, PDF, EPS, FXG, or SVG formats will preserve all Illustrator data in the file. Choose "Adobe Illustrator" as the format unless the project requires another format and click "Save a Copy." On the next window, click "OK."
