Your resolution is too low. Click image, select image size, and raise the revolution. I usually set it around 300.

The R shortcut is to select the rotation tool. When you'll press ALT and click on a corner, you should see 3 little dots near your pointer. Then this window is supposed to appear. If it doesn't work for you, I have no explanation why, and I think the ALT key is the same on Mac or Windows. But you're not stuck, you can always use the TRANSFORM panel to ...

When you Unite multiple shapes they become one shape. All the individual fills are ignored and a single fill is applied to the united object. That gradient you have can't be accomplished on a single shape as a fill, other than using a gradient mesh. But when using the Unite command, meshes aren't generated for you. A better option may be using a stroke ...

I don't think you can set a default file type for the "save as.." It will save in the same format as it already is and if there's no layers (for example) if you do a normal "save." But you can set a default format for the "export as" or "quick export" in the "export" in the menu "file" on Adobe Photoshop. Then you can select your favorite format and even ...

This may not be anyone else's problem, but all I had to do was check the "delete cropped pixels" box at the top of the window. That's it.

A 1-month subscription to Illustrator through the Creative Cloud is $29.99. It's not free, but it's not the hundreds of dollars it used to cost. Might be worth it when compared to the time spent trying to find a work-around.

Once two unconnected pages are in the same file, you can connect them the same way you have with the pages that were already there. Click the text thread square in the bottom-right of the page (just above the bottom-right corner) and then click on the frame you'd like to connect. Even if there's content in the imported frame, the two threads will connect. ...

I was going to write this as a comment, but it got a bit too long. This is something that I'm always thinking when I see questions like this. Don't ask broad questions like this. Analyze the image and divide it into smaller tasks/questions. Rather than start with: "How can I make this {complex-example}?", start by breaking it down into specifics. ...

It depends a bit on the situation, but the most generic answer is to use shape builder. Select the lines you want to participate in the cutting and cut. Activate the shape builder tool (Shift + M) Alt + Click or drag on line you do not want to keep. Image 1: Trim lines using shape builder. This all depends a bit on your base understanding of how ...

I think what you're looking for is Direct Selection tool which should be "A" hot key. You can also use the Lasso Tool which is "Q" hotkey. Let me know how that works for you.

The way you explain your issue, it seems like you have an embedded color profile in your image and your preferences are set to keep these profiles. When you do a "save for web", it usually removes that profile so the image is lighter. And if you do a normal "save as" and look at the JPG in a browser or a software that doesn't do color management, it will ...

Sure, that's possible. You may, however, add this functionality in Acrobat, as InDesign may not provide the needed user interface to do it.

Ok and oldie but goodie question; here I go: Some definitions/aclarations: 1) Quality is a process, is taking care on each step of it. In a case of resampling an image there is no "quality" loss, (except if you make mermelade of your own photo, probably compressing it like hell) What you have is information loss when you downsample it. You have a ...

DPI setting in this case has no meaning. Graphics produced for web or pixel based media do not have a dpi resolution. But if you want one illustrator pixel to be one point your dpi settimg has to be 72 simply because 1 point is assumed to be one pixel. One point equals to one 1/72th of an inch so if you really put 150 in your dialog that would explain why ...

You have to make sure that the pictures is linked directly to the images. Else will it be white-boxed-background instead of transparent! // MP

First, how are you designing the buttons? Did you pull them from the sample buttons menu or did you just make a box and set it as a button? What it looks like to me is the appearance layers are mixed up. Go into your "Buttons and Forms" pane and look at the appearance and see if you see a box in the mouseover selection, check the click on and click off ...

That's not so much a transformation as it is a distortion. Transforming alters the entire shape, whereas distortion only alters a portion of the shape. All "transform" operations tend to alter everything at least to some minor degree. If you want the second example just draw an angled shape above the rectangles and use the Pathfinder Panel to subtract the ...

Files saved in Illustrator CC are not 100% compatible with earlier versions like CS6. Losing layers is the most common problem, so I'm pretty sure this is what caused yours. If you want to back save an Illustrator CC file to CS6 without losing layers, you can follow these simple steps: Select 'Save As' (choose type Adobe Illustrator (*.AI) Open the ...
