After years of working with clients and bosses I have learned to always ask, "Why?". For instance in your situation I would be asking, "What's the problem you are trying to solve with using a photograph?". This does two things: It reframes the question from design specifics to a language you both speak well It reframes allows your boss to elaborate on his ...

Illustrator can import files as Linked Objects. Rather than embedding the raster image in the illustrator file (eg. by copy/pasting it in), a Linked object points to another file within your file system. This separate file can be edited and updated independently of Illustrator. To import a linked file: In Illustrator, select File > Place and select the ...

Use a line instead of a shape, lines can have round ends. Relevant Adobe Help Document

One can slice the graphic along its length and then make each subsequent section topmost. This allows the sections to overlap. For a shape like this maybe 4 sections is enough but if you want more self overlaps then do 10. same effect can be achieved with a pattern brush that is also comprised of sections: Image 1: Brush sliced up. You may want to expand ...

Sounds like your barcode is a bitmap / raster (even if .eps, the format is capable of embedding bitmaps). If that is the case, you can solve it by tracing the barcode first. LiveTrace while the barcode is still vertical find the preset that gives best results, check Ignore White Expand rotate and say goodbye to jaggies, win.

I think you have selected "Shape layer" rather than "Paths", here how to solve it. First select shape tool or pen tool and select Paths as shown in image.

Friend at work helped me out, happily: Before trying to vectorize the stroken I needed to use Layer > Paths > Flatten on the shape. Worked like a charm :)

Aradnix makes a point that really resonates with my experience. I started off in the Computer Graphics Design world in 1987 while attending The Univ. of Tennessee. The first CG program I used was AutoCad (I think ver. 2.0). At the time there really wasn't any useful raster graphics program available, nor any need for one. By 1989 Win 3.0 showed up and ...

Displaying a pixel image is technically easy. All you need is to tell the graphics card to show the pixel field, possibly filtering it to suitable size before doing so. A very minimal amount of code needed - a walk in the park. A vector image is not an image at all... it's an instruction for how to draw an image. And these instructions are possibly complex ...

To add white space around your graphics, make sure the artboard is sized how you want, and then check the "Use Artboards" option when you export. It will crop to the artboard size exactly.

While I haven't found a way to do this, I often find myself wanting the same thing. What I do in cases like this is drag out two Guides (one horizontal and one vertical) and snap them to the point I want to keep track of before deselecting the object: This way you can see where the anchor point is, and even have Illustrator snap objects to the ...

Have you opened the Vector file in a vector editing program like Illustrator? It is highly likely that the opacity may have been applied onto the layers themselves within illustrator and it's this opacity that is reflected in Photoshop. The opacity that you are trying to adjust is applying to the entire opacity of the image, but not the individual ...
