I've heard that if you save your design as PDF, you will create a vector. I've done it before quite a few times, and it works. However, I'm not sure if PDF would be of any use for your purpose. EDIT: Just make sure you save the PDF with the correct colour profile, as this is a very important point to remember when printing something. Some printers (most ...

For type, you really don't convert from raster to vector. In fact, in general, you don't convert from raster to vector. Rather, you redraw it as vector. You can use tools to make this job faster, such as auto-trace tools in programs like Inkscape or Illustrator, but it's still only going to be an approximation and will require hand tweaking. All that said, ...

Make sure you don't have any background in your artwork (use wizard / pen / selection tool to remove the background from the artwork). find the colour of the artwork (if it is one colour). What I mean is, for example, look at the image given by @Keavon earlier, it's like light grey. Use the colour sample tool to see what colour it is. double click on the ...

Switch to using a Fill Layer The set up: Layer menu > New Fill Layer > Solid Color… In the resulting dialog box, leave the defaults (mode: normal and opacity: 100%). Click OK. Next appears the color picker. Choose black, and click OK. Now your canvas will be filled with black, so select the layer mask of your newly created fill layer and choose Edit ...

Duplicate the layer by selecting it and hitting CtrlJ. Then adjust the new layer's opacity so that it matches what looks good to you. You may need to duplicate the layer several times if it starts very light. As suggested by Scott, you may also set the Blending Mode (found to the left of the Opacity in the image above) to Multiply on each subsequent ...

One method is.... Copy the layer Set blend mode of the copied layer to Multiply Repeat until it's the level of opacity you want. It is often best to always paint at 100% and adjust layer opacity rather than adjusting brush opacity. Of course, it depends on the end goal though.

You simply need to experiment with modes and opacity to get where you want to go... I, personally, would probably opt for the Color blending mode above Hue. Then simply adjust the opacity of the layer until you're happy.

You can use actionscript. However you would find it far more easy doing this in an external program and importing that inside Flash. You can make a text rotate animation in Adobe After effects & import that inside a movie clip in your flash project.

There are plugins, XCatalog by Em Software comes to mind, but that isn't an inexpensive solution. However, it does babysit the process. Does InCopy provide any options for you?

Select the image and click the Expand Button on the control bar across the top of the screen. Click here for the help files about using Adobe Illustrator's Image Trace feature. (or simply tap the F1 key when in the application and ask your question in the help file search box.)

According to the Adobe dev team... Illustrator honors exact precision. It is merely the input fields which round to 3 decimal places (4 in newer versions). So if you input 10 decimal spots, Illustrator uses 10 decimal figures, but the input field will only show 3 (or 4). I can neither confirm nor deny that. Nothing I do needs that much precision. However, I ...

When change a single page and save it, those changes are saved to the original PDF document overwriting only that page of the multi page PDF file. Aside from seeing every page as an artboard, ...

If the monochrome logo was not provided by the customer themselves, it was most probably made using a Gradient Map. A way to achieve the desired effect would be: Open your logo file in Photoshop. Ideally, this is a file with transparency, but one with a (white) background will work as well. Open the Layers palette: Window > Layers or F7. Click the ...

In light of the new layer filtering features in Photoshop CS6, Adobe removed the Select→Similar Layers command. Hooray! It’s a rare thing when a menu gets shortened. Source So it's gone...Now you use filtering at top right of the layer menu:

Whip up the Appearance panel, either with Window > Appearance or Shift+F6. In there, you should see the Round Corners effect be named. You can either drag the effect to the panel's waste bin and start anew, or click the effect's name to have its dialogue box pop up again, where you can edit the effect to your heart's content.

Yes, at least when it comes to dragging out ruler guides, like you appear to be doing. When dragging a ruler onto the canvas, hold the shift key and your guide will be constrained to the 'ticks' on the ruler. So when viewing at 100%, as you drag, your guide will snap to every 10 pixel increment. You can snap to every single pixel by zooming in to 1200%, ...

I've run into this bug for years. It's most definitely not cause by groupings or compound paths, as I've used the gradient tool within them plenty of times. Sometimes simply restarting illustrator will bring the tool back, but not always. I've never found a consistent method for fixing this outside of just remaking the object and re-applying the gradient. ...
