This does not make sense to me. I have an Illustrator file and the shape is about 245 x 210 px on the artboard:
I then export this image as a transparent png, using the artboard:
But after it’s been exported to my desktop and I right click on it and get info, it says that the dimensions are 1036 x 915:
That’s WAY different from how it is in Illustrator. And when I try to upload the image to imgur, it’s also too large there as well:
I’m just trying to make this triangle smaller. Why is this happening?
You are exporting at 300 ppi which is more for printing, for screens, I believe that the number is generally 72 ppi.
I personally would just use Save for Web (Alt+Shift+Ctrl+S) and then manually input the size I want in the dialog.
