How to Create a SVG, JPG, or PNG

Hi there everyone. This video is going to show you how to export graphics from a bunch of adobe software products. We're going to look at illustrator adobe Photoshop and adobe XD. Now I know not everyone is going to have the software, but it is really common in as a web designer to have access to these. You don't have to they are paid products, there are free trials for them. But it's going to be probably times we're going to have to encounter these software or at least to grab the graphics out of them. And I'm gonna show you how to do all of that in this video. All right. So this is going to be just a quick run through. I'm gonna give you some basic skills as a web designer. You're going to need to know often say you are working with a more kind of graphic designer that's doing the kind of layout or design of it. And you actually just doing the coding often they'll they'll just hand you over api photoshopped document and say, here you go, do that. Or an XD document and say fix that or...

illustrator or you might be doing the whole thing like me. I like doing the kind of design part as well as the coding. So we're gonna run through the programs that I use. It's not going to be all of them, but they are really common for the industry. So let's start with X. D. Um So adobe XD is it's kind of like UX design program. It's kind of new. It's gaining popularity. It's kind of a really big competitor to sketch. Alright, so exporting from this is real easy, click on the graphic that you've designed an XD and you hit command E on a Mac or control E on a Pc. Okay. Or file export. And we're going to use export selected. So just make sure it's selected, it should come out and in this case we're going to give it a name. I'm gonna call this one bike man. So you use underscores or hyphens Okay. You can't use spaces where it's bad practice to use spaces because some older browsers don't like it. And then I'm just gonna put mine straight onto the desktop just to show you. And down here you can decide on your format easy. Peasy. Pds aren't going to work for a website. Okay, so we want PNG SVg or jpeg and in this case because of this one, we've already talked about it. Which one do we want? Yes. Jpeg. Okay. And then there's the quality Okay for a website. Never 100%. So my this is like a suggestion. Okay. Between 40 and 80. It really depends on the graphic. Okay, this one's a stock image. Okay. It's really nice. You can't move the other way but you remember it it is really good so you can go quite low if you've got some footage from the clients and it's shot on a cellphone often the quality can go down as low and basically what it means is the file size is going to get smaller and that's what you want. We've talked about page load speed being an important part of ranking in google. So in my case Like, and because this is quite a lead image, I'd probably go 80% and for these guys down here that are just kind of like supportive graphics behind, I'd probably go down to between or 60. You can just type it in. You might go actually, let's make it 70 now. We're not gonna cover like two X and three X at the moment, we're gonna look at responsive images a little bit later in the course, but for the moment, that's how I get my Jpeg. Here we go and we'll do a couple more from extend, then we'll move on to another program. There we go. And hopefully on my desktop. Now I have got Jpeg just hanging out doing nothing. He's 36 kilobytes. It's good quality fish. Okay. And yeah, that's how to get J pigs out this one here. Now what should this be Jpeg or PNG or SVG? SVg? Right. And so right click it, You can right click them. Sometimes it depends. This one's been marked for export. So we're gonna use a shortcut command d I'm gonna use a long way. Okay. And this one here is gonna work really good as an SVG leave all the defaults. Let's click export and hopefully on my desktop, I have an SVg. Here we go. Hello. SVG didn't preview very well. Okay, but just like this, oh, this one, I forgot to change the name of it. I can do it afterwards. Okay, I can put iphones into it that'll do now. Just remember to do it now. There probably is no reason to actually export a JPG or PNG in this case, but you know how to do it right? It's in that same little drop down and there's no real adjustments for PNG s just like here you go. And exporters, these ones here for weed sizing is when we get to doing kind of like mobile apps, okay, When we export android IOS we don't need it for the moment. That's the basics for X D. Now there's a lot more to it. Like if you do my Felix de courses, like a whole chapter on it, we're not going to do that all here. It's giving you that kind of get by stuff. Let's look at using Photoshop really common to use Photoshop even though it's like a photo editing program gets it's really common to use this in web design still. So I want to export this thing as do we want the full background. That'd be perfect as a jpeg because I want transparency. It's going to be a PNG. Okay. The reason this is not an SVg is because it's not really simple graphics, there's too much going on in here alright To export from hotspot. There's a couple of ways. The best way. Okay, is file export in this like insignificant name here, it's called export as it's brilliant. If you're using safer web, it's fine. It's just not as good as this. Okay. Some people out there might be fighting me on that, but this is the new thing and in my experience is the better thing. So the cool thing about it is you don't need to resize it before you come in here. A lot of people will go, all right, I've got this big image now, I need to go image image size, make it smaller and then they export it and then they undo the image size so it gets big again. Okay, whereas export as it means you can do it all in big go alright, format up here. Okay, JpG GIF, SVg, Okay, we're going, this is all you really need. Right, I'll show you a couple of other little perks you might say Okay, it needs to be a PNG but I need it to be 500 pixels wide. Okay, and that you can kind of do that at this stage, which is quite nice, but let's say you need a smaller version as well for something so you can hit a little plus there, so you can have one that is behalf the size of .5 or maybe one that's twice the size will do, this is more kind of responsive design. You can add different versions of the graphic, different kind of versions. Yeah, different sizes of it and anything else. No click export. I'm gonna stick it onto my desktop and I'm gonna have a bunch of SVG, is that the right size now? We don't really need to cover it, but let's do it real quickly export as J Peg it's just there and the quality slider is just along the top here and you like, like we said before, same same rules apply in this case, you know, because it has a full background. Now you see the transparency disappeared because it's a J Peg, let's say that's okay, that's what we need. I'm gonna go 60% and the quality is going to be just fine because it's a good image. It was modeled in adobe. Um, what do I do it in a dimension, which is a cool like little three D program they've got and I'm just going to have one size. Thank you very much and hit export Now SVG will work kind of okay, this one here is not really and it's not a vector graphic, it needs to be something drawn with victor now and sorry in Photoshop it will need to be something drawn with these tools. Okay, you've got a bunch of these, these are all victims shapes and you can see they're just really simple. These are export. Great as an SVG. This is not now, there is a lot more you can do for Photoshop for web design, I've got a full course on that as well. If you want to look for my Photoshop for web design course and but the one last thing I want to show you is you can actually just find a layer, right click it and say export as or use the quick export. Yours is probably gonna say quick export for PNG. That's fine. I changed mine in my preferences to because I export mainly as a jpeg you can go to here. Okay, and you just export that one layer. Just another way to get to it. There's lots of other cool things I want to show you. But again, it's like a whole another chapter in that large of course. Alright, let's look at the last one of our little gang. It's going to be adobe illustrator. So this little logo here, I want to export, let's say I just want this graphic here. Now in illustrator there's this cool panel called window and it's under asset export. Okay, this little panel opens up there. He is, he's already in there for some reason. Alright, so it looks like this and all you need to do is group the thing you want to kind of stick together if it's not grouped, it ends up doing weird stuff. This is a group. I just drag it in here and there he is. If it's ungroomed, I'll show you what happens in case you do it? So here because it's all little pieces. If I grab it all and drive, get in, you see it'll be a zillion like little graphics getting exported. So let's undo that. Cool. So I can drag this in like let's say I've done a full website design in illustrator, it's totally perfect for doing it. Okay, well should group those down group them. So I've grouped a couple of bits, thrown them all in here then as a big group which is cool. I can say actually I would like them all to be PNG S or S V G s and I'm going to export them and stick them onto my desktop. It's getting a bit give you missy there. Okay, it's going to export it now. What's really cool about this? Where's my SvG? Yes, there they are. I like to put them in a nice little group. Okay, there's one actually, that was a good point. Can you see this one's got a blue line around it. Okay, so it only exported that one. That'll catch you out. Okay, so select both of them, click one. Hold shift, click the next one or I think if you have nothing selected No, you got to stick them all Cool. I hold shift on my keyboard, click them both. Head export and we should get both of them now replace it there it is on my desktop, Is it 2? Is it 3? All right. And the other cool thing you can do in here. Well what's nice about this asset panel is watch this. If I change this to another color instead having the gradient, I just pick another color. Can you see updated in here? I don't need to drag it in and do it. Okay. I can give it a name in here as well so I can call it a rocket. Okay. And I can hit export again and it, it just saves me time. I have to drag it back in and identify it again. It just updates instantly and just click export and there's my rocket. Okay. Same things if you need PNG or Jpeg it's up to you. So three bits of software. They're all adobe. It's really common to use adobe products. The only other one that gets used quite commonly is something called sketch. I don't have a course on sketch yet. But if you illustrated, I've got kind of like generic illustrated courses like essentials in advance. But I've got a really specific one for web design that might be useful for you. It's called illustrator for web design. I think it's called illustrated for UI and web design. Same for Photoshop. There's generic classes. There's a Photoshop essentials in advanced but there's a there's one specifically for web design and XD. I've got a X. Is only useful Web design. So there's only one course on that nice big one. But I hope there's enough in this video to kind of show you how to get them. At least the basics out of those bits of software. It wasn't too much of a cross sell trying to sell you my other courses. You don't have to do them because often you just instead of doing a lot of the design, you might be just doing the the coding in the creation. Alright, buddies. I'll see you next video.
