Ok, So I understand raster vs vector graphics. Lets just get that out of the way, lol. I have done mostly print work, do designing for digital is my weak point. Here is the issue I’m having:
I’m making a simple vector graphic that says Happy Thanksgiving to upload to Facebook. I have designed it in Illustrator because it’s vector (maybe should be using photoshop instead?). I have designed it to size 1200px by 630px. It’s just white lettering with an orange gradient background. I would love to save it as an SVG but Facebook does not let me upload that file type. So, I export as a jpg at 150. When I post, it’s blurry. I know jpeg is a lossy format, and it’s not going o be absolutely crisp and perfect, but it seems to be pixelated and discolored around where the white meets the orange. This happens on etsy as well, but no one has a solution. Is all this due to Facebook compressing the images further? Looks great when I open the jpg on my computer, but terrible on Facebook. It doesn’t look professional. Is there anything on my end that can help the situation. I have attached a screen shot of the Facebook post to reference.
