Vector programs are used to make much of the art and graphics we come into contact with on a daily basis, from company logos to T-shirt prints. One of the great advantages of vector art is the ability to scale it up or down without degrading the quality. This allows designers to use the art in a variety of ways and visual spaces. One of the necessary components to being able to use vector art regardless of the size of your available space for graphics is having a transparent background for the art.

Skill level:Easy

Instructions

1 Launch Adobe Illustrator and create a new file by selecting "File > New" from the application menu.

2 Create your artwork or design. You can apply brushstrokes, fills, shapes etc.

3 Select "File > Save As" from the application menu. Create a name and designate a location for your document. Click the "Format" drop down menu, select "Illustrator EPS (eps)" and click "Save." This will bring up a new dialogue box of .EPS options.

4 Click the drop down menu in the "Preview" portion of the dialogue box and select a format for your preview. This is how your document will be displayed in programs that are not set up to display .EPS files. You can create a transparent background for this version of your file by checking the "Transparent" box beneath the "Format" drop down menu.

5 Adjust any other options relevant to your file, such as font embedding, and click "OK."

Tips and warnings

.EPS files have transparent backgrounds by default, so any program that can display .EPS artwork will display your file with a transparent background if it is saved in that format. The preview options discussed in the steps allow you to create a transparent background for your file when displayed in programs that cannot display .EPS files directly.
