Why has the font gone fuzzy?

Hi all,

I'm brand new to this forum and really new to graphic design, so please feel free to explain things in detail to me!

I've recently purchased an illustration and edited it in Adobe Illustrator. I've set this up on artboards that are 788 x 788. I've added text to the image. In order to publish it as a slide deck document on LinkedIn, I had to save it as a PDF. Once saved, the illustration looks crisp and clear, but the font looks fuzzy. Where have I gone wrong? Any recommendations on how to fix this?


Here's a screenshot of it on LinkedIn:

Likely compression of the files.

788x788 isn't exactly high res to start with either.

The file sizes for posting to LinkedIn are indeed quite small. Is there a way to change the compression from Illustrator so that it does not impact the PDF output?

Hi all, thanks for your help! I think I've discovered the issue is not related to Illustrator - the files appear perfectly clear when I export them as PDFs. The problem (likely compression as you mentioned @Levi) occurs when I upload the PDF to LinkedIn.
