You know it is selected when there is a blue box around your image. 2.Click on the small down arrow button next to Live Trace. See the red arrow in the picture above. 3.Click on Photo High Fidelity 4.You ...

Printing When printing the rasterization engine does quite many pixels. Thus it is not likely to generate a gap. A gap can still form from misalignment of plates but this would happen even if you would overlap because the rasterization process would still overlap the elements. That is unless you overprint Other considerations Printing aside, overlap is ...

Watch out for overprints The only risk with the overlapping approach is when you over-print. With a good printer, they'll take care of it and it won't matter. With a bad printer you have a whole host of things to worry about anyway so just find a good printer (^_-) Best practice I think it's best to leave the overlap in place. I say this for the simple ...

The overlaps will have no bearing on printing. What you see in Preview Mode is what is printed. That is what "preview" refers to. It makes little difference if you remove the overlaps or not. Upon production output, colors are trapped to each other. The area of visible color is what is output, not the shape boundaries. It doesn't really alter anything if ...

I've been asked this question before, almost exclusively from people who do not want to pay me anymore for my services and think there is an easy way out. They think to themselves: I'm going to get this designer to create promotional material, but I don't want to have to pay him to make the updates every time I change the date. Isn't there an easier way? ...

The below method only locks the image so it will not be moved when changing the text or margins. You will still be able to move the image. In Microsoft Word paste your picture. Go to the Page Layout tab. Click on Position then More Layout Options. Under the Text Wrapping tab, make the picture either Square or Tight. Go to the Position tab and tick the box ...

When you paste from the Adobe programs, make sure you use Paste Special and select Enhanced Metafile Then go into Word's Picture Tools ribbon and open up the Layout dialog box You can lock the position in the Layout dialog box. However, that may or may not work best for the final file, as the surrounding text may become irrelevant or break weirdly. Also, ...

Before approaching icon design, there are some guidelines and principles that are worth studying. If you want to create effective icon designs, then you should take a holistic approach to issues such as audience, size, simplicity, lighting, perspective, and style. This article gives you a good starting place for creating icons that work well together and fit ...

As you probably know, a logo shouldn't be too complicated, should be easy to remember, and shouldn't have a buckload of text; your logos seem to have neither of those, and I must say I love all of them. If you feel like it, add colour too? If you're considering to add colour, I would suggest to stick to one - too many will make your logo stand out, but will ...

If the raster art (JPEG elements) is comprised of basic shapes or simple gradients, it should be vectorized. A simple rule of thumb when it comes to designing for print is this: anything that can be vector should be vector. It may be tedious or costly, but if you want your artwork to come out crisp then that is the route you need to take. If you don't have ...

This problem has nothing to do with software choice or settings therein but basic mathematics. If your output is intended to be square raster files in multiples of 22 then the source (vector) file and the major elements should be simply divisible by 22. With the horizontal line elements in your design being half the height of their respective dots, and ...

It's a whole bunch of metadata, including embedded JPEG thumbnails: You can open that PDF in a text editor and delete the entire block if you want, and the PDF still works: https://www.dropbox.com/s/l7saorb5zcxr3mf/stripped%20metadata.pdf?dl=0 (about 6kB) Or you can run it through Acrobat Pro and do the "Sanitize" command, which makes it even smaller ...

Inkscape 0.91 and above has the ability to toggle antialiasing. This can be accessed through the Document Properties window (Shift+Ctrl+D). When turned on, which is the default, this image of an array of triangles looks like this. When turned off the image looks smoother. As others have mentioned, this currently has no effect on the png export. ...

I wasn't familiar with the name Octopod before seeing this. If the purpose of the name is significantly detached from the toy of the same name then I think you're OK to go with it. With the most recent design you've shown, I think having the eight dots in the circle is an elegant way of visually representing the name and worth pursuing. I feel that whilst ...

The artifacts you experience come from the supposed-to-be invisible strokes at the outer rim of the stacked objects created for each color chosen at tracing. Artifacts may become worse in case we had applied a Gaussian blur to the bitmap before tracing. This is done by the smooth option in the Inkscape trace dialog. Therefore it was a good idea to not check ...

The problem is basically in the way Inkscape is deciding to split your image into color regions: instead of simply having the lighter colors overlap the darker ones (or vice versa), you're ending up with two adjacent color areas that both overlap a third color. Since the edges don't line up perfectly (due to both tracing inaccuracies, and also some ...

In order to turn your low-resolution graphic into a high-resolution (or vector) version, you'll need to trace over it in a program like Adobe Illustrator. Illustrator also has the "Live Trace" feature, which can quickly turn that sort of black-and-white icon into a vector instantly. Once the image is vector, you can stretch it infinitely large or small and ...

Photoshop’s Generator can save SVGs (yes, proper, vector-only SVGs based on shape layers created in Photoshop). You will need Photoshop CC 2014.2 (or 2014.1) to do it though.

It looks like you built a grid, then made the Chevron pattern on the grid. To fix this, select your pink shapes all together by using the lasso tool or direct selection tool by holding shift while you click the shapes to add them in the selection. Bring up the Pathfinder tool box, by going to > Window > Pathfinder. In the Pathfinder box > Merge. This ...

Yes its true. You customarily never want a stroke weight below 0.25pts. Smaller than .25pt runs the risk of being not picked up entirely when reproduced.

The smallest line weight or detail you would be able to print depends on the line screen of the printer. But most digital presses have sub millimeter resolution. With Offset printing it's not a matter of resolution/quality and more about registration. If the line was a knockout fill (white paper showing through) there would be a chance of the ink filling in ...

What's happening is that even though the second shape is a mirror image, the brush is still going in the same direction as it is in the first shape. A work around is to duplicate the brush to use on the reflected shape. Then with the duplicated brush selected in the Brush palette, go to the contextual menu (the small menu in the upper right of the Brush ...

In Photoshop specifically, you need to use the pen tool to create vector shapes. You can also use the shape tools and choose a fill color. The marquee tools (i.e. lasso, rectangle, circle or magic wand) will always have a pixelated edge when zooming in. If plan to work exclusively with vector shapes you will want to work with Illustrator.

I am not familiar with Sketch, but based on my AI experience, the problem might be that the rounded corners of the hexagon might have been created using a feature that is not a standard SVG feature. SVG is a vector format but it does not support every possible effect, shortcut and visual candy that the vector editing softwares include. Some effects are ...
