Illustrator in 60 Seconds: The Asset Export Panel

The process of exporting multiple assets from Illustrator at the same time used to be a tedious task, but luckily for us Adobe has added a new tool that changes everything for the better.

If you want to learn more then you should definitely check out this short video, which comes with a couple of steps to help you.

The Asset Export Panel

Back in the day, the process of exporting multiple assets at the same time used to be really clunky, but luckily for us Adobe has introduced a new tool that allows you to save as many items as you want, using just a couple of clicks.

By default, the tool is hidden, but you can find it underneath the Window menu, or within the Layers and Artboards group if you’re using the Essentials Classic workspace.

You start by selecting and then dragging the desired items within the panel, which treats each group as its own asset.

Moving on, you have your Export Settings, which allow you to generate not one but multiple scales to which you can assign a custom suffix, and then choose from eight different file formats that can be individually set for each and every one of them.

If you’re designing for iOS or Android you have a set of dedicated buttons that will create all the required size variations, to which you can add new ones or even remove those that are unnecessary.

Once you’re ready, all you have to do is press the Export button, which will ask you for a location to save the generated files.
