Hello

I have an Illustrator file that needs a transparent background. How do I make it transparent? When I export it to a png, it gives me an option to have the background transparent. However I want the Illustrator file to be transparent. Thanks for your time.

I got quite a few responses that looked like your answer might be there.

I did try that, however everyone said to just export it as a png and create a transparent background. However I need the actual Illustrator File transparent. Thanks though

It would be helpful to know the whole story:
1) What is your Illustrator file? Line art, photo, what?
2) Why do you need the AI file to be transparent? Where is it going after you're done?
3) What is the end result?
