Export Artboards as PDF & Separate JPGs in Photoshop
Alright, so it's time to export. That's where the naming of our art boards was super helpful if you haven't done it just double clicking it and starboard 12 and three, give it a name here. It is handy, especially when you want to update your files. If you make changes so you can click in here. A nice little tip is you can add tab tab, tab. Tab. Tab means you can keep typing or copying and pasting the names and so we've got all our names in here actually this one here is wrong cover, this is meant to be instagram. They don't have a cover image but they have, this is for their posts and it's probably gonna crop to a square. Okay. I didn't think that one through Super well, but let's export all these files. So what we're gonna do is go to file, let's go to export and we'll start with the exported files. Pdf is pretty easy. We'll do that second. But most of the time I want to export a big pile of apex so we can now go and upload them to the different social media platforms, stick mine on m...
y desktop. Here you go, give it a name. This is just a prefix. It's going to add it to the end. It's not, I don't want anything added to the end. I've named them nicely over here. This one here, export selected items catches me out every single time. Okay with this on, it's only going to export the instagram one I've got selected. I'm going to turn that off the file type, you can decide I'm gonna use jpeg and export options is an armed by default. You can turn it on and just decide how what kind of quality you want to deal with and hopefully on my desktop. Thank you Photoshop there there. Okay, all ready to go. We've got jay pigs all nicely named awesome. What's really nice about it is if you make an update, so let's go to this one and I hit inverse. I'm gonna do the same for this one and I do the same for this one for no good reason otherwise, other than it's easy to see, I can go to file and just run that thing again because I've named them all outboards to files, put it in the same place on my desktop. I wish this would remember what I did. Quick run and I'm like this stuff now, you can see that it didn't like make duplicates of it. So you gotta be careful of that I guess. But it's nice. All these things are updated, ready to go. Somebody's made a change. I can just run it now. If you need to just run one of them, let's say only this one has changed, it's inverted and now is black and white. So just this one needs updating. Is it this one just right, click it and go to export as And in here you can say I want you to be a jpeg. I want to be 8% using the right name, I can click export stick it on my desktop, it's going to replace it. Yes please. There's an easy way to do just one or is it there, is there the other thing you can do is export a p d f export, let's go two outboards to pdf or is it going to go, it's going to go to my desktop. This is using the file name now, not my art boards. So I'm going to call this one. It's my illustrator. I'm getting lazy advanced july 19. This is going to be my age because I'm going to show you a B version with some different settings. Cool export selected art boards. No, I want all of them. Not just the one I have selected here. Got these two options, multi page document. Just means I'm going to have one pdf with five pages. You click on this one and you're gonna have five pdf up to you. We'll do this include art board name, that'll be your A and B testing. Just to show you the difference. We'll run it without it and you get what you imagine, right? You just got a pdf for them all in here, desktop here. Where is he there? He is there, Open them up and I got a pdf because it's a small one. It's not looking so great at super large version. Hands on my PS five pages Now there is a way in Adobe Acrobat to make sure that when the documents opened, it opens at 100% size like down here, not the full size where it goes fit visible, looks weird. I can't remember off the top of my head where it is. You'll have to find it in acrobat. But no, it can be done. Let's look at the other option. So in Photoshop, we're going to go to export, we're going to go out boards to pdf. Good brows. Just stick it on my desktop and give it the same name as before. This one is going to be Hey, did I start with B. I did. It's kind of weird. Was the other one. B Oh man, it's late. It's 10 30 at night and killed us on Z turn off that turns back on every time multi page I'm just going to include the airport name on it. Run kick back relax. And we have a slightly different pdf which you might find useful because it describes it because the other pdf just has a big pile of shapes that all look very similar, especially these profile images. I did. I started with B All right. Susie has this, it's extended the outboard out and we have just text around the edges now just to help whoever's proofing it or checking it. Just know what we're talking about. Alright my friends, we have come to the end of our boards that's everything I know about them. Let's move into some more exciting Photoshop tutorials. I'll see you tomorrow morning when I'm fresh and we start retouching by now.
