The best way to convert a FreeHand file to Illustrator CS6 & CC-2014 is using the FreeHand Interface Plugin from Tensai. I use it and the conversions are very good. You must have a copy of AI-CS 3,4,or 5 installed but this can be a trial version (even if it is expired.) It doesn't do batch processing but I understand the developer is working on that. ...

In my case I was trying to resize a large image to a small size where 12% of reduction happened... and each and every time the image was pixelated in some way in photoshop. My solution was to take the large png image open it in ilustrator then click in "live trace options" select "high fidelity photo" option then "expand". The result was amazing. Then ...

The following screenshot says it all.

In your screenshot, the Layers Palette shows the layers folders open, showing the contents of each layer / sub-layers. A shape is simply a closed path — a path in which there are no open end points. I think what you are trying to do is "subtract from shape." Select the Window drop down from the top menu and make sure Pathfinder has a checkbox by it. In my ...

Create a new document that is 30" x 40" Open the original document Select everything on the page (Ctl/Cmd-A) and copy (Ctl/Cmd-C) Switch to the new document and paste (Ctl/Cmd-V). Everything will be selected at this point, and the artwork will be centered on the new page. Don't click anywhere on the document or you'll deselect all of some of the objects. ...

select all the lines to be trimmed and the shape grab the Shape Builder Tool, and Alt+Drag from A to B with it repeat on other places as necessary on more complex shapes, where Alt+Dragging in a straight line is not possible, you can Alt+Click on individual lines to delete one by one.

The most difficult part of pattern creation is finding the proper pattern tile. You essentially have to examine what you see to figure out the smallest area possible which is repeating. When you try and create a tile which is too large you can easily run into alignment issues. For example, in your art, the circles are of varying sizes. Some are larger than ...

I've been happy using ArtFiles to package my AI6 projects. It's easy to use and works great. Just open the program and drag in the file. It also lets you know of any potential errors. The free trial version allows you to use it 15 times… after that it's $39.95. It's been well worth it for me.

While Vincent's answer is correct if this image were to be on a single page to be placed inside a text block I think you're going to run into issues on the export because you will have to export the ePub as a fixed layout to get this to work as a spread on a device. Since you will run into complications with the text and the image I would use what's ...

I'm not entirely sure it will work as intended, but you could try to give the image a text wrap. Select it, and find the Text Wrap palette through Window > Text Wrap or Alt+Ctrl/Option+W. Click the second icon 'wrap around bounding box'. That way, the image will not tolerate any text on top of it, pushing any text that would come under or over it to lower ...

The basics, however, are to create the pattern, then select it and drag it into the swatches pallette (or use Object > Pattern > Make). In order to make the seams more seamless, you can resize the artboard to the appropriate dimensions and export just the artboard portion. In this case, I'd guess you can just resize the artboard to surround one of the ...

The script does work if you mess around with it a bit. And yes, joojaa is correct, it is a JSX. Line 2 needs to be changed to an actual destination using slashes instead of backslashes, plus a semicolon at the end. I.e., var destination = "C:/Users/USERNAME/FOLDER/"; You could also alter line 9 to options.quality = 100; if you aren't actually saving ...

There's this cool plugin: http://aiscripts.com/ai-scripts/openmultipagepdf/ It's worked beautifully for me

You can also do it with other CS6 compatible scripts: Select Open Paths Close All paths Select Open Paths And this super nice one that lets you select open paths, gradients, transparencies, etc: Extended Select

I have a method for finding open paths. Using the document info objects, I go through the artwork and select certain pieces and when I find the piece i've selected that shows an open path, I copy that selection over so i can separate the section with the open path and that way it's easier to find. Hope this helps.

As I said, a task better suited for AI, but this is how I would do this in PS. There may be a better way to go about this, but I don't use PS for this kind of stuff, so I don't know about it, if there is. The initial shape: I made a duplicate of the shape and decreased the Fill to 0%. This is the shape that I then applied my stroke to. I then selected ...

Ok do this: Make a line about the length of the ZigZag size you need(use the line tool or pen tool). Make sure to put a color on the Stroke or Fill of the line before the next step. Go to Effect > Distort & Transform > ZigZag Click the preview checkbox and adjust the Size and Ridges per Segment sliders until satisfied. Once you've hit OK you'll have ...

You can't use effects or brushes with entire rectangles. Simply create one side, then draw the other three sides of a rectangle. Create the triangles easily by drawing a path and choosing Effect > Distort & Transform > Zig Zag Choose Object > Expand Appearance Grab the Pen Tool and draw the other three sides of a rectangle.

In Photoshop CS6 or newer, you can simply set the Stroke Options for a vector path....
