You can do this in Photoshop with custom brush you need to define (rectangle shape) and then play with the settings (remember that "roundness" in this case will be thickness of the shape. This is what you could get. In illustrator the easiest way (for me) would be do create few different patterns, fill objects with them, then expand and multiply and ...

Yes. In photoshop from drop menu choose "save swatches for exchange", choose destination and name. Then in illustrator Open swatch library "other library" and point to *.ase file you created.

JPG images can not store any transparency or clip info at all. You need to review what are you doing. JPG, PNG, PDF are output formats, this is, formats that other aplications will recognize, but try to stay with the native's aplication file formats as much as you can, in this case use PSD, because all Adobe aplications will, not only recognize it, but take ...

If you are confident that you have selected a font that you have installed on the machine, you may have a font style selected that isn't available. For example, I see that the style you have set is "Normal", but it may need to be "Regular". This can happen usually when you switch from one font to another and the assigned style isn't present in the new font.

Basically, no. The other program will not check for updates (and therefore will not update) until it is moved to the foreground. You can rapidly switch back and forth by using alt+tab twice (cmd+tab on Mac) as a fast way to see the changes without having to use the mouse.

You can use the transform effect rather than a regular transform, which will let you set the transform origin from the dialog. Actions won't record effects so you will need to use the Insert Menu Item... option from the Actions panel's dropdown and select the effect. Since the transform is an effect rather than an actual transform you may want to expand ...

It sounds like you enabled outline mode. This is a mode that will break your image/design down to simple black lines, where you can see everything (even if it's behind an object). Commonly referred to as "outline or wireframe". You can toggle this view by pressing CMD + Y(Mac) or CTRL + Y(Windows) or View > Outline in the top application toolbar. This ...

As some commenters have pointed out, the "blurriness" you see on the curves are the result of anti-aliasing due to the low resolution in which you are working; there simply aren't enough pixels to display your logo crisply. Really the only way to help the "blurriness" caused by antialiasing is to increase the pixel dimensions of the logo. If you need it to ...

Assuming you've made the logo in illustrator you could simply copy your outer circle, place your new circle over the top of your image and create a clipping mask. In the menu "Object > Clipping Mask > Make" or "Command + 7" on a mac. Place your new clipped texture under your first circle and make sure your first circle doesn't have a fill.

You can save swatches to Adobe CC library (See this link for a full introduction to using the CC Library). This library can save various assets but one of them being swatches which you can use on various Adobe programs. The swatches will sync whenever you make a change to the swatch. There are many ways to add swatches to a library. 1) Add assets from the ...

*Based on your file and setup 1) Make all circles black. 2) Select both objects, in the Transparency Window click "Make Mask" 3) Then click on the "Invert Mask" checkbox.

You need a single path to create a clipping mask. You can't use a group of objects or objects with effects etc (the effects would be disregarded anyway). Simple fix: select all of your circles and create a compound path (Object > Compound Path > Make). Compound paths essentially treat a group of paths as one single path.

Here's a quick tut. Create background with darker color then desired font. I used black. The write with chosen font what you want. Add stroke, I've chosen 4pt. Copy text, paste in place (shift+ctrl"cmd"+v). Remove stroke and change color to "shadowy" (20K in my case). Paste text again. remove stroke, change to white and move it up and left "a notch"...

Or you could also try using this same method but using a big white transparent stripe instead of ovale. You can also add an outline (a thick one) that would take the very background color.

I would try applying outline to it, for example with the color of the outline in logo above. Try different colors - maybe focus on lighter ones.

Simple Answer.. Export your clipping path to .eps. open siad .eps in illustrator, then unmask it, seperating your image and path.

Some clients just ask for nonsenses. Check if "the client" is only the owner or it has a graphic design departament. If it has, send the file to someone who actually knows what to do with it. If you are sending an Ilustrator or CorelDraw file, just send a layered document, deactivating the black based layer. For a png file there is nothing you can do. ...

Can you use the Adobe Creative Clouds apps, the desktop version, on an iPad Pro? No, they have separate apps for that. Adobe Comp Like Indesign Adobe Sketch Like Illustrator Adobe Fix Like Photoshop Adobe Mix Like Photoshop Note: You will probably need an Adobe CC subscription to use those apps. Possibly through mirroring the display ( desktop to ...

The align only aligns based on bounding box. Not actually the shape of the object. So aligning a few random shapes wont have the specified separation the boxes surrounding them do. Image 1: Align with spacing aligns the bounding boxes spaced by distance. Boxes in cyan. Astute Graphics has made a tool called ColliderScribe that can make this a bit faster ...

Ended up with built-in Illustrator functionality, that is described in details in this video. Have checked, it works.

3 things: First, have you tried using the "Save for Web" interface and selecting "Type Optimized" from the dropdown before exporting? Second, if that doesn't work, make sure your artboard is lined up on whole pixels. Using the artboard tool, select your artboard and look at the info bar to see if the X and Y values are whole numbers (ie, no decimals). ...

I think you can play around with this configuration panel to remove these strange curves. BUT the main solution that I always use is to make line/curve shorter like the example shown below: You can see clearly the difference between the 2 trees leaf.

not sure if you can get your hands on C4D but you can duplicate the objects (like the pills) and then apply tags that make them fall and scatter naturally. then you can just freeze it and export a picture any size you wish.

This is related to DPI settings. I won't be able to solve the issue without knowledge of the specific screenshot software you're using, but the software is assigning a DPI to the clipped image that doesn't match Illustrator's settings. See if the clipping software allows you to configure the DPI and try 72 or 300, depending on the profile you have set in ...

Dynamic symbols were introduced with Illustrator CC 2015 which let you change the fill/stroke/etc without breaking the link to the master. You just select the placed symbol with the Direct Selection tool and change away. https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/how-to/dynamic-symbols.html

This can be efficiently accomplished using the Transform Palette (found under Window > Transform) Lets say for example I want to move the yellow square to the right of the blue square precisely, in the "X:" field of the transform palette, I see that the current X center of my selected object is "267.13mm." In order to move it exactly 10mm's I can ...
