I'm trying to export a vector image which is 600x200 pixels at 300DPI.

Within the image is a square picture that I've masked within a circle shape, with an exposure and brightness/contrast adjustment.

Whenever I export to PNG, JPG or TIFF, not only is the overall image quite blurry, but the circle is very pixellated around the edges.

If someone could please advise what I should do I would really appreciate it, as I've been scratching my head over this for much too long!

Thanks

Thanks for your prompt response.

I think the blurriness is down to viewing at a higher zoom level, but the pixelation around the circle is visible regardless of zoom level. If I rasterise the circle in Designer it also pixellates around the edge of the shape even at 100%.

I’m designing a signature to use in my e-mail client, and have used the dimensions suggested. So why does the image also appear blurry on my e-mail client, as this is surely displayed at 100%? I have tried using larger dimensions but it just ends up taking up too much space (the size cannot be adjusted in my e-mail client)

It is probably because a 600 x 200 pixel rasterized version of your logo doesn't provide sufficient pixel resolution to avoid blurring its fine details.

Possibly,, if you convert your vector logo to a larger-resolution bitmap  (1200 x 400), then Resize down to 600 x 200 it may apply some anti-aliasing (depending on the re-sizing algorithm) which would reduce the apparent pixilation.

Bizarrely, I just opened the same Designer project on my iPad Pro rather than my desktop and exported from there and the pixelating problem vanishes.

I'm still getting a blurred image on the e-mail client though, so I'll take John's suggesion and see how that works out.
