Sometimes i can save my artwork in png. format by clicking from the SAVE AS tab.. but sometimes when i click SAVE AS, there is no option for png. format.. why does this happen? Can anyone explain? And what is the difference if i save png. from the SAVE FOR WEB & DEVICES tab?

png is an rgb file format that is why you can't save the cmyk as a png, you could try a transparent tiff but that will be a VERY large file, also cmyk is not for web.

gif is another file format that is transparent if you choose but I don't think you can save a cmyk in a format that should be rbg maybe some of the others have better information about this?

you can't make a raster file into a vector file unless you completely redraw the image. Saving the raster file no matter if rgb or cmyk as a vector will not create what you want or need.

I am not quite sure what you are trying do here

From what I am reading you have a raster file that is cmyk. you want to save this raster file as a png file, you have to change the cmyk to rgb to save as png

I am not sure why you would save this in illustrator unless you are redrawing this artwork to make it a vector file

In photoshop, you need to create a path around your image and then save your path. You will then need to save that path as a CLIPPING PATH. You can then save your image as an eps file. It will allow you to save in cmyk mode for printing purposes. When you import/place the image file in illustrator, the image will be silhouetted (no background around the image so it will have a 'transparent' background). Hope that helps.

Lets say this is the image i want to convert to cmyk and save as png.I cropped the image of the owl and deleted the background.I normally just save the cropped image to psd files, then just insert it to illustrator. It helps because the background is transparent, but i can't use the same method every time as certain image i'm using is big and psd files are heavy.
As you were saying,I make the path around the owl using pen tool,right? Then i right click,but how can i save the path to clipping path cuz the CLIPPING PATH tab is not highlighted. Sorry, I'm not an expert in photoshop. Hope i can learn something new from you.

In photoshop, select your magic wand and click on the white background around the owl.

From the pulldown menu tab, go to SELECT > INVERSE

Right click and select MAKE WORK PATH

From the pulldown menu tab, go to WINDOW > PATHS

You should have a floating PATH palette and you will see the name WORK PATH

If you double click on WORK PATH, you will be able to name it and click OK to save it

Select the drop down menu icon (in the upper right hand corner) of the PATH palette

Select CLIPPING PATH and click OK (You will see that your path is now 'outlined')

From the pulldown menu tab, select IMAGE > MODE > CMYK COLOR

Go to FILE > SAVE AS > PHOTOSHOP EPS and click save/OK

You can also create a path with the pen tool if you have an intricate image that needs to be silhouetted.

Here is a link to a tutorial as well:
Comm Lab: How To Make a Clipping Path in Photoshop

Good luck. Let us know if it worked. :)

It worked! Thank You #paintedpony. I learned something new today. I can even edit it's shape in illustrator. I tried saving the image to eps and psd,I realize that the eps file is heavier compared to psd. Anyway, thanks a lot!

First clipped out the background or remove the background then you can easily save your artwork in .png formate.

 I think you can try this.

Take a screenshot of your artwork. Paste it into a graphics program like MS Paint or Paint.Net. 
Crop it, edit it or whatever and then save it as a JPG or PNG or some other file format that you can use elsewhere. 

Since you like MS Works' Word Art, keep using it. 

I have MS Word and it has Word Art. I can copy/paste it to some other apps like MS OneNote. But, I have to use the screenshot method I described above to save the Word Art as a graphics file (JPG/PNG).

 

To know more you can take a look at Clipping Path Associate
