When you edit a vector image for your web page or video editing, one of the first skills you'll need to master is saving the "Alpha Channel" or transparent background. Here's how to save an image to assure it retains the transparent background.
On the Illustrator Top Menu >> View >> Show transparency grid
or use the key sequence: SHIFT+CTRL+D
To be sure the file you "File/Saved" retains this transparency....
1. Go to File > Save for Web...
2. Save as a PNG (Portable Network Graphics) file. You have two options: PNG-8, and PNG-24. The main difference between them is that, like GIF, PNG-8 comprises a maximum of 256 colors.PNG-24 is a lossless format and supports up to 16 million colors. Once chosen, make sure the Transparency checkbox is enabled (it normally is, by default).
3. You can also save it as a Graphics Interchange Format file (GIF file). As with the PNG file, make sure that the Transparency checkbox is enabled.
4. Success! The background of your PNG or GIF file is now transparent, and can be placed atop other objects.
Have you ever wondered how to change the color of the artboard?
To change it, begin by accessing File and Document Setup or Ctrl+Alt+P.
1. Select the drop down box, select "Artboard"
2. Change the selection to "Transparency".
3. Click on the top color box.
4. Change the color.
5. Now put a check mark by Simulate Paper. Press OK.
Your artboard should now reflect the changes.
