Keeping art board size when exporting from illustrator

I made my artwork to 1920x1080px in adobe Illustrator at the request of my friend who I am doing it for.

I have realized when exporting to jpg the size changes…

What is the ideal way to export the file to keep the same width and height?

It’s for their ads on a large screen TV. Don’t know if that’s important info

There are several ways to go about it, but here’s one way. I’d create a Photoshop file at that aspect ratio. Then I’d copy and paste the Illustrator paths into Photoshop as a smart object. I’d scale the smart object to fit, then rasterize the layer and flatten the file.

Illustrator crops to the art on an artboard unless you tell it not to.
When you Export > Export As
Select your jpg option then check the small box at the bottom of the dialog box that says “use artboards”


It’s rare that I create in Illustrator when a raster image is the deliverable, but in such cases, IlIlustrator’s image export has failed me in one way or another pretty much every time. Get it into Photoshop, from which a proper raster image can simply be written via Save As or Save For Web.

Thank you so much for the replies! I very much appreciated the input!
