How make pixel perfect forum images icons

Post by PB190 » Sat Jun 02, 2018 4:51 pm

Hello, can you tell me how i can make pixel perfect and sharp image forums icons ?

I have imageset of vector icons for prosilver forum. I try do 64x64px icons and export to gif, so quality is no good.
I try to export to svg, but same quality.

Maybe i do any wrong process.

I use Adobe Illustrator and too Adobe Phostop.

What size is best for forums icons ? 64x64 or 32x32 and what settings use to export on gif.

Thanks

export to png not gif and you want double the size you display it at.

Yes i try this method - first zoom to 200 percent, print screen and crop to 64x64 and export to gif, but this looks quite well and sharply but it is tedious.

I now try - in vector resize image to 30x30px and add in to 32x32px square - export to gif, and perfect quality !


png i not use, because I would have to overwrite everything in the file colours.css from gif to png
