How to export a JPG from Illustrator

Need to export your Illustrator project as a JPG file?

Exporting JPG files from Illustrator is super easy — which is good considering that JPGs are one of the most common file formats in use today. By using the Export for Screens option, you can choose which artboards to export, and can even specify multiple formats and sizes, in case you want several sizes of JPG or a mixture of PNGs and PDFs as well!

Here’s how to do it:

  2. From the top menu, select File > Export > Export As
  3. From the Export As popup window, choose the JPG file format from the Format drop-down menu, and select “Use Artboards” to export the full artboard size
  4. Click the Export button
