On my recent web design project, I had to exporting Illustrator AI files to Photoshop PSD. Illustrator gives you the ability to export to Photoshop while preserving important information. You can export Layers, Color Profiles, Resolution Specification, and Text Preservation.
- Go File > Export and choose Photoshop (PSD) on the Format dropdown
- On Photoshop Export Option dialog, you may change the Resolution, Color Profile, Layer Options, Text Edibility, and so on.
- Another thing to note is that your Document Color Mode has to match the Color Model in the export options for the ability to Write Layers.
