Hello, I have serached and cannot find an answer for this problem. It is most likley very easy…
So, I have a large background image which I have cropped by using a clipping mask. The cropped edges are not shown on the canvas. However, when I export to .jpg or save for web, the canvas size adjusts to the cliiping mask size, making lots of blank white space.
I have read the help section and cannot find how to export the canvas size only. If I save it as a PDF it exports only the canvas size when opened in Acrobat. But when I save from Acrobat to .jpg (the only way I can seem to get a canavas without the white of the mask) it looses quality.

Draw a rectangle exactly the size of what you wish to save, then go to Object>Crop Area>Make. You’ll still have some white space, though, or whatever the matte color you set, because jpeg doesn’t support transparency.

If you want to just crop your JPG or Save For Web output to the artboard size you have set, just do what Bert said without making the rectangle. steve
