    I have an image I have designed in Illustrator. I am using layers because I will be implementing rollovers when I write the HTML. However, when I export as a Photoshop 5 file so that I can crop all the images up in Photoshop the image looks 4 times as big as it should be. If I export as a JPG I lose the layers and the quality is not very good. Please help as I need to get this sorted for Wednesday!

    Why not use the Photoshop resize tool? It works great when I save stuff from Illustrator into Photoshop format.

    when exporting from illustrator you need to make sure that you are exporting at 72 dpi resolution to photoshop 5 format. the greater you make resolution when exporting the file, the larger it will be in photoshop.

    Thanks
    I think the resolution thing works.
    I did it though before I read your kind comments and this is what I did:

    *I saved 2 copies of the illustrator file, one with the first layer visible and another with the second layer (the rollovers).
    *I opened both files in Photoshop. I then copied and pasted the second file into a new layer on the first file.
    This can backtrack on you if both files are not the same size as then your rollovers can look funny but in this case it worked.

    THANKS GUYS!
