Any time a format isn't available in the Save As dialog, it means that format is invalid for the document in the state it's in. There's no such thing (as Lese and cwedge point out), as a 32-bit (or 16-bit) jpeg, nor a duotone, Lab or 1-bit bitmap jpeg. Photoshop versions prior to CS5 would simply not show jpeg as an available option for 16-bit images, which ...

I'm not sure this question is on-topic, but it's the first question on the site, so here we go: What you're looking for are layer based slices. Select the layers you want to export, go to Layer > New Layer Based Slice(s) Go to File > Save for Web & Devices... When saving, choose "All User Slices" If you have overlapping layers, which you will have ...

Using File → Save for Web and entering the dimensions will do what you're after. Also, Illustrator uses vector scaling, so the results are better than if you tried the same thing in Photoshop — entering dimensions that don't match the document in Photoshop means the image will be bitmap scaled. Please note that you have to click Apply after changing the ...

To add in words, Since Export Layers to Files is run by some script all I had to do was find that script, then find the function which saves the layers to files, find which part of the function does the numbering prefix & comment it out. So here are the steps - on Mac running Lion, goto Applications > Adobe Photoshop CS5 > Presets > Scripts ...

I used an automatic photoshop script once and worked well. The concept is : Each portion is a different image. Each portion (and so, each images) must be in the same folder w/o any other images. Run the script indicating the folder and some parameters (size, css name, etc...). The script does : Merge all images into one with the size you indicated. ...

GIF is not designed for high-quality images. Smooth vectors from Flash will end up pixelated in GIFs not matter what you do. Photos and the like will generally look bad because of the reduced palette. Dithering can help, but the end result will still be much lower quality. If you want an animation, you should really be using straight Flash and not GIFs ...

You can use the "slice" tool (looks like an x-acto knife, below the wand): select the rectangular area you wish to save using the slice tool. go to "save for web" use the "slice selection" tool to pick the slice(s) you wish to export, set your options and then save. in the save dialog, pick "selected slices" from the "slices" drop down at the bottom of the ...

Not a complete solution, but this might help someone who's come here from Google. If you save with the Save for Web dialog File > Save for Web you can re-size during the saving process, the options are on the right hand side under Image Size. I do this quite often when I need a couple of different sizes for an image, although as the other responses ...

Can you? Sure you can. Should you? Probably not, but it depends a great deal on the artwork and what version of PDF you save to. You may find when saving to PDF that more advanced appearance settings may get flattened. PDFs don't link to assets, they embed everything - so placed images would be embedded at all times. You may also find that type objects may ...

I'm not sure I understand what you're trying to do, but when you say your composition is 1000x1000 do you mean that the canvas is actually that size? One thing you can do is : 1) hide everything you don't want to see (option click the "eye" icon of your chosen layer) 2) select all 3) copy merged 4) create a new file (it'll automatically be the size of your ...

Just a suggestion, you could "copy merged" then open a new file (this will already have your image size so just hit enter), paste, then "save for web and devices". This way you don't have to have two Photoshop files to maintain; you can just save the entire image as the optimized version you need. To specifically answer your question, there isn't a way to ...

EPS is "Encapsulated PostScript," which pretty much gives you its origin and its purpose. It's a legacy file format that permits a visual representation of PostScript code. The only benefit of EPS today is that it's theoretically usable by any vector graphic application, no matter how old, and by legacy equipment such as older computer-controlled engraving ...

I don't believe that the option exists as print-layout software is focused on laying ink on paper. Since "white" is the absence of ink, it acts as a transparent background. Keep on mind that unless you are laying a base of ink as a spot color on top of your specialty paper, you will not have any "white" areas in your print. In fact all non-black colors will ...

When applying anti-aliasing in the Save for Web & Devices panel the entire export gets the same anti-aliasing method but you can apply the anti-alisaing on an object level. Select an object and go to Effect > Rasterize.... Choose your desired ppi, it is better to always choose Use Document Raster Effects Resolution because then it will be easy to ...

I understand that it is bad practice to try and make faux bold text in any program, whether Photoshop or Illustrator or Indesign. I understand it, but it is also not realistic to an artist. Sometimes you like fonts that don't have a bold option, but they need to be more readable. What do you do then? So it isn't good to apply faux bold in Photoshop because ...

In general, all of the fonts you use should be embedded when you export it using one of the existing PDF presets (in fact, I believe that it's a major piece of work to not have the fonts automatically embed). The only issue you may have is if you're using some bizarre font with strange permissions (e.g., the trial version of a font, a font that someone ...

Try This... File > Document Set Up Click each of the color boxes you see there in the Transparency section. There are 2. The color picker will pop up when you click the color box Set both boxes to the grey you want to use for the background. Click OK Now choose View > Show Transparency Grid from the menu. This will show you a grey background on the ...

What you're observing is not a clipping mask, per se. Jpeg has no transparency and no concept of clipping or masking. Jpeg does have several metadata sections, and many programs will happily store extra information in there. Photoshop stores paths, as you've noticed, and guides. To replicate this, create a new file and add some paths and guides. Then ...

Copying 54kb PNG file to Windows XP VM decreased file size to 5kb. OS X Photoshop version adds "com.apple.resourcefork" attribute to file during regular saving. You can see it by ls -l@ filename.png. The attribute is not included in file, but the file system shows total size. The white background from the screenshot seems to appear because of this attribute. ...

So it's just two adjustment layers you need to add? I'd create an action to add them, then use a batch (File → Automate → Batch) to process all the original files. You can include a Save For Web command in the Action to save them to a known location, as well. Should be a fairly quick job to set up, and it also shouldn't take long to stomp through 138 or ...

eps is the standard, and the process is as simple as choosing eps from the Save As menu. It's been the standard for this sort of thing (final asset delivery) for longer than I've been in the industry, is understood by basically all vector design software, and is very similar to Illustrator's native format (the original post script format eps is based on was ...

What I ended up doing is the following: Select the object(s) to export Open the document properties window (Ctrl+Shift+D) Select "Resize page to drawing or selection" File > Save As Copy... Select Optimized SVG as the format if you want to use it on the web Not as quick as I would like but quicker than creating a new document for each graphic that you ...

To give you a candid answer, the answer is "terrible HTML". As Scott said, Photoshop will produce a table based layout. The same goes for GIMP. Here is a sample output for GIMP: <table cellpadding="0" border="0" cellspacing="0"> <tr> <td><img alt="" src="slice_0_0.png"/></td> <td><img alt="" ...

Select the logo. Object > Artboards > Fit to Selected Art As for a transparent background, Illustrator files inherently have no background. You can turn on the Transparency Grid if you need to confirm that -- View > Show Transparency Grid. The only reason you would have a background is if you used raster images or raster effects within your ...

All pngs are 'good' and 'sharp' as they are losslessly compressed, unlike jpgs. It's just a matter of experimenting with settings that keep an amount of colour that you're happy with while keeping file sizes as low as possible. In Photoshop, the 'Save for web' exporter allows you to view 3 different optimised versions of the output as well as the original. ...

Sounds like a problem with the working ICC profile. Have you disabled color management? If you haven't already, go to Edit -> Assign Profile and select Don't Color Manage This Document. I can duplicate the problem mentioned to an extent (getting various sample values, though not getting the same #CA006C) by changing the assigned profile. (FWIW, using ...

Unfortunately, I do not have access to CS3, I use CS5. However, I noticed that when you export, in the dialog box where you choose the file name, there's also this option: Make sure it's unchecked as shown, this will export ONLY the content, not the artboard. EDIT Alternatively you can fit your artboard to your illustration:

I'm going to try and answer this question based on the given information regardless of format but under the assumption that these are large-format banners going by the hard dimensions given... If you are combining large elements like this, I would highly recommend that you move your layout work out of Illustrator and into InDesign or Quark, then output to ...

Easy. Make a slice that would contain all of your composition(or the part that you require), then place this slice on top of your other slices, either via context menu option "Bring to Front", or by clicking on gliph placed on Options pannel. Slices placed below don't affect those placed a top, thus doesn't devide it.

This is a kind of last resort, when you're really stuck. Realize that no matter what the original size and resolution of the image were, AI considers "full size" (100%) to be the physical dimensions of the image at 72 ppi -- a legacy of the original Mac screen resolution that has somehow got itself stuck, regardless of the fact that it's been obsolete for ...
