Illustrator: Saving Just What Is In The Bounding Box?

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to save a .jpg from Illustrator, but not include the extra stuff you have on the side? Like.. if a vector goes out past the bounding box/printable area, is there a way to save JUST what is in that box?

Illustrators export sucks IMO. Id save yourself the headache and just open your image in photoshop, crop, and save to web.

Draw a rectangle on top of what you want to export. With the box selected go Object > Crop area > Make. Then File > Save for web and devices. Then release crop area.

Wait, crop area is not showing up in CS4. Any ideas? I have a box selected. But no crop area ever appears in "object" menu.

With CS4 you'd use the Artboard:

 

- Alter the size of the Artboard for cropping: Go to File - Document Setup - Edit Artboards. Resize either manually or by inputting the values (top panel). Press Esc to exit.

 

- Go to File - Export. Check the Use Artboards box!

 

Hey presto.
