The document or shape may be in "Greyscale" mode. If you open the Color tab, and click on the options menu, is it set to "Greyscale"? You can select whichever color mode you want from this menu... Note: You may need to select the shapes/strokes in question to apply the change, but that should do it.

The optimum solution to this problem will be dependent on the final use of the illustrations (i.e. whether they will be used for print or digital). However, one quick fix would be to add a very fine Black key line to all of the black shapes and set that keyline to overprint. The width of the keyline can be very fine so it will not spoil the design. The ...

Try the pst-3dplot package available for example in Texlive. Oh look, they've got what you want as an example right in the manual. If you want to have perspectivity, try pst-solides3d instead. Just in case you don't know how to handle this all by yourself, you can use this link to access one such example. The code is very easy to understand.

Solved, I had to use a tool called "Silhouettes" in Illustrator, export to SVG (vector), open with Inkscape and ungroup the four letters.

The dissolve effect you have in Photoshop is a raster effect, it is made of pixels. There is no path data so you can't simply import it in to Illustrator as a vector object. Either: Save your dissolved object as a grayscale image and place in Illustrator. As long as the image is saved in grayscale you can simply select the image and change the color just ...

Without seeing the SVG, it's hard to say, but here are some possibilities: Did you drew outside the drawing area? Open the file and press Ctrl+Shift+D. There's an option to re-size based on the drawing. Did you used a <flowRoot>? There are two ways to add text. Click once, then start typing (this creates an <svg:text>) Click and drag, then ...

You can use Adobe Animate 2015. It supports SVG.

You'll want to be using a vector application for the most part. Affinity Designer is a good prosumer option while Inkscape is the opensource option. Sketch is another option but its intended more for Interface design than the two aforementioned but it can be used for logos. If you mean an app for mobile you could try Adobe Illustrator Draw since you're on ...

Hum. I am afraid that is an incorrect aproach, regardless if the tutorial says it is a perfect spiral. The error is that that figure has a "Jump" in the diameter every half circle. A "perfect" spiral has a smooth continous progressive increment in diameter. Your specific model is an Archimedean spiral. That can be minimimized using smaller fractions, ...

Given what you've tried it sounds like its a very small spiral. Scale it up, position them, then scale it back down.

Use the Rectangular Grid Tool to create a grid. Create a mesh envelope (Object → Envelope Distort → Make with Mesh...) with an even and equal number of rows and columns. Select alternating columns of mesh anchor points using the Direct Selection Tool (A) and offset their position. Do the same with alternating rows of mesh points. Create a ...

You have to make a square, and fill it with the graphics that will be the pattern. Later select your square and drag n drop to the color palette, use it to fill objects with you pattern. To modify your pattern, double click it!

I don't have Illustrator, but this is the general technique I can do in GIMP. The same technique should be applicable to Illustrator: Start with black background In gradient editor, create a custom gradient that consists of three equal-sized segments. The first third is solid foreground color, the second third is linear gradient from foreground to ...

One way would be to apply a linear gradient on the stroke. Create a circle, and stroke it with a gradient pattern. Make sure the gradient has the stops like in the table and picture below. The gradient might not look as smooth in the transitions, but that's all that comes to mind. +------------+---------------+----------+ | Color Stop | RGB | ...

Either: Manually cut the paths, probably using the Scissors Tool (C). Use pathfinder operations (Window → Pathfinder). or Define a transparency knockout group.

There are two solutions that I have found for exporting multiple objects from Inkscape as SVGs. These methods have the benefit of being scripts that can be run automatically and don't need editing of SVGs in text editors. svg-objects-export The svg-objects-export script works by exporting all objects based on regular expressions. In your case it would ...

You can export to the vector format SVG using an AfterEffects plugin called Bodymovin. It has some limitations, but is a very useful plugin. If you really want to export to Flash, export to SWF format. Though you may run into some issues doing that, so looking at a video tutorial may help.

FYI, here's another way to create a triangle with one curved side, using the polygon tool and pen tool in Photoshop. 1-using the polygon tool, create an object with 3 sides 2-Rotate using Image > Image Rotation > 90 degrees Clockwise. Drag a vertical guide rule to align with the bottom triangle point (this helps define the triangle's vertical center). With ...

i made it with the regular pen tool all you need to make is to make a new layer over the image the lower the opacity of the new layer the choose the pen tool and make sure that it has been set for a " shape " not a path then start from the corner of any straight line then move towards the next corner .. when you want to close the shape and make the ...

I suggest you watch this tutorial and all your (or most of) your problems with Pen Tool. It's a really powerful tool but requires some practice and time to master it. Have fun! Hope this helps.

Assuming the lines are separate line segments set at -45 degrees, here's one way to approach this: 1-Click on the leftmost line and Copy/Paste in Front. 2-Click on this duplicate line using the "Type on a Path Tool" and set the number "1" (applying type will convert the duplicate line into a path). Set a baseline shift (of 6 or 7 point) to move the number ...

Looks like I found my own answer! Smart Objects in Photoshop are always rasterized at the resolution of the Photoshop file. There's no way to stop it (except to place the AI logo directly from Illustrator). Yes, I know, it's sad. It's type and vector Photoshop shape layers that can be "saved" at full vector resolution by saving as Photoshop ...

As some commenters have pointed out, the "blurriness" you see on the curves are the result of anti-aliasing due to the low resolution in which you are working; there simply aren't enough pixels to display your logo crisply. Really the only way to help the "blurriness" caused by antialiasing is to increase the pixel dimensions of the logo. If you need it to ...

The align only aligns based on bounding box. Not actually the shape of the object. So aligning a few random shapes wont have the specified separation the boxes surrounding them do. Image 1: Align with spacing aligns the bounding boxes spaced by distance. Boxes in cyan. Astute Graphics has made a tool called ColliderScribe that can make this a bit faster ...

If these are what you claim they are then you have several problems. Your printers resolution plays a important part. The underlying offset on printer plays a part. It would be better to let the RIP engine do the halftone. There are several reasons for this but mainly because with vectors your decoupled with the printers grid. Even if you get the ...
