I think the closest you can get would be a setup like this: Basically create your shape, apply a layer mask to the shape creating the feather how you'd like using whatever tool you want. I did airbrush but could just as easily select your shape, feather it, then make layer mask. Then use it as a clipping mask since it sounds like that's what you're after. ...

You don't Feathering vector within Photoshop defeats the purpose of it being vector. If you need a feathered edge, create a raster mask.

The easiest way I know to do this is to create a separate artboard for each illustration. To do this, make sure each one is grouped together. Go to File->Document Setup->Edit Artboards or just hit Shift+o to start editing the artboards. Then just click twice (not double-click) on each group to make a new artboard for each one, it will automatically size ...

you need to select all your artworks, then go Object>Slice>Make file> save for web, after choosing the slice select tool from the left panel you can select each artwork holding shift, and then change from the right panel the options (file type, quality etc.) you can use slice select tool by double clicking on each object, it will bring a dialog box where ...

From what I understand by your question is that you wan't to delete a path from your vector shape layer. You can do the following. Suppose this is your vector. Select the Path Selection Tool and click on your vector layer. Select whichever shape you want to delete. Hit the delete Button. Done. I hope this is what you were looking for. If not, let me ...

After some time playing around with this I noticed there is one much more simpler way. With a bezier curve point selected with the Direct selection tool (a), using the Pen (p) tool and pressing alt one can move the curve handles individually. With alt pressed start moving one handle, and then holding shift will restrain the angle of movement along the ...

You need to test the compatibility on diferent target devices, mainly mobil ones to see if your background works. According to this: http://caniuse.com/#feat=svg-css It is now safe to use it inline. If the image is a flat design I would use a png. I would not use a svg for background, just for diagrams. I do not think a background needs to be "that" ...

Alright, I found a solution. It seems that the problem comes from Automate-PDF Presentation... When I use this tool to create my pdf, the shapes are deformed. But if I export every pages separately in PDF format using Save As... there is no problem. Then to merge all the pages I use an online webservice. I agree that this is not really an explanation but ...

Try to check "Preserve Illustrator editing capabilities" while saving, it should fix the problem. Moreover, be sure that: "responsive" is not checked your artwork isn't bigger than your canvas your canvas' size doesn't contains decimal values I use Illustrator to generate .svg for the web and it works pretty well.

You can use the scale tool with the tangent. Once the tangent is selected with the direct selection tool (a) click on the vertex tangent to move scale pivot to vertex. By holding Shift you can now constrain the scaling to be equal in both direction, which achieves what you want. You can also scale both tangents in unison this way. Screencast 1: Moving ...

Press Alt + Shift when using Direct Selection Tool (A) and dragging the anchor point. The cyan should stay locked so the only one you will move is green one. Hope this is what you need.

That happens because the tree images aren't in the same folder that the SVG resides, there are two ways that you can solve it: Copying the necesary files to the same folder that the SVG resides. Embed the image in the SVG file (see this).

You can't get vector from a PDF with Photoshop. Photoshop rasterizes everything when you open a PDF. That is unless the PDF was created by Photoshop with Preserve Photoshop Editing Capabilities on. In my experience, those type of PDFs are rare. But it can happen. If you do have one of those PDFs, just opening it with Photoshop will show the layers... ...

If you have Illustrator just open the PDF page with gold circles and you will get perfectly crisp edges at any resolution.

This worked for me: If you are having aliasing problems in Illustrator CC 2015, ⌘+E toggles between GPU and CPU previewing. CPU's anti-aliasing is 1000% better.

In Illustrator, if you have points (using pen tool) or borders/stroke, you need to expand the lines so they become Vector Shapes. To do that you need to select the lines, go to Objects in the toolbar, select Expand, have both "fill" and "stroke" checked and press ok. Scaling any vectors to remain the same size dimensions, hold "shift" before you start to ...

I'd encourage you to hire a professional because honestly based on your question you don't have the skillset to do what you're after. Vectors for example lack size by definition, websites also don't typically use a vector logo though they could these days with SVG, but not common. Scott told you how to make a vector, but that's only applicable for print ...

They are called 'negative space logos'. Here are some examples: Design Shack Bored Panda CSS Design Awards I call them negative silhouettes. The classic is the two face/a vase: Negative Space

Its just linear interpolation of point positions. Here is a quick illustrator script example: #target illustrator var sel = app.activeDocument.selection; if (sel.length === 2){ if(sel[0].typename == "PathItem" && sel[1].typename == "PathItem") { for (var incr=-0.4; incr < 1.5; incr += 0.2){ if (incr != 0 ...

Observing that the EPS file uses PDF-style syntax, I noted that the text scaling is done with Tf: 8 0 0 8 5.327283 18.119995 Tm The 6 numbers are a transformation matrix, where the first number (8) is the x scale and the fourth number (also, as it happens, 8) is the y scale of the text. You have to pick one (well, usually) – I picked the first number. ...

This is a very simple procedure. what do you what to know exactly is how much enlarging (in percentage) a text from 18pt to 20pt. Just measure the text before enlarging it (in pixel or mm) and measure it after enlarging it. then do some calculation, and this will be the ratio that you must enlarge the whole drawing with.

This could depend on how you have your document setup but here is how I did it. Type or text out Add the blur effect, Effect - Stylize - Outer Glow Select the type and go to Object - Expand Appearance Select the type again and right click -> ungroup Select both the blur and type, Under the transparency options click on Make Mask

It's difficult to answer definitively without seeing how art is constructed. However, a Clipping Mask should work well. I'll assume you're starting with something like this: An object with multiple strokes and blurs applied. I am guessing here :) I used live type, but it doesn't have to be type. Basically a general set up similar to this. The black ...

The reason why the font does not render correctly to the actual font type is because, when the SVG is saved using the Illustrator application. The application automatically converts the design to code. And if observed closely the font name within the code does not match to the actual font installed within the system. To overcome the issue of font rendering ...

If you're in Illustrator, redraw them. Live Trace isn't perfect, and my experience using it has never yielded "great" results. It has corner and angle settings but they're approximated.

Can you trace them in Illustrator? Drop some guides and snap to the for the right angles, or hold down shift when you are clicking with the pen tool to get the proper alignment...

There is NO reliable way to do this. Powerpoint is a very bad program to preserve imported paths. The EMF and WMF are very buggy vector file formats. I would ask, What is the purpose of the images? What kind of images are thoose? If they are ment to stay in power point, then you probably should learn how to stick into power point's features. If they are ...

I think the fastest way to do this: Method 1: If you already have a vector Add some white shapes on top of your graphic to hide the details. Then open the "pathfinder" panel, select all and "divide" everything. Then select at a piece of white, go in the menu "select" and choose "select same fill color". And delete the white parts. Method 2: In Photoshop ...

Best way I can think of is using 3D software and then instead of trying to offset the design you can just make a flat pattern to apply as a texture. I'm not familiar with the OpenSource Blender but in Rhino you would do it with a nurb surface. Like Scott I know of no way to automate this in Illustrator. However, I will say if you are attempting it in ...

While at a glance what you are asking may seem like a simple math-based solution, the reality is you are seeking three-dimensional automation to which will generate spacial settings so they appear correct on a two dimensional plane. While you can certainly use 3D or 2D software to create ribbons, I've never seen anything which will automatically configure ...

Basing this upon comments which elude to laser etching not printing..... They are much different. For laser etching you ideally want the vector graphic. I'm uncertain if GIMP can do that, since it's a raster-based application. This is especially true if dealing with only 4cm. The original image should hold up okay. Some of the smaller detail will be ...

To simplify line art, it's often a matter of just doing it by hand. Delete the extra nodes, smooth out the lines as you see fit. Lots of hand tweaking. However, here's one more automated technique I've used that sometimes works. From top-to-bottom: Original Image Image with a slight Gaussian blur applied Image after adjusting Levels to sharpen the edges ...

Or: you can convert to curves (together). And then, only select one of them.

I'm using Inkscape 0.91 r13725 on Debian 8 Go to: Filters => Blur => Cross Blur I left the Brightness at 0, Fading at 0 GUESSING that the gaps were 1 pixel I set Horizontal blur to 0.50 I set Vertical blur to 0.50 and there was noticable improvment, but not perfect. Hopefully this helps towards the perfection you seek. The image was too large for my ...

There are a number of software suits that are used in the animation industry to assist in 2d animation. Two that are most commonly used and have been used by dozens of big animation studios including Disney and Nickelodeon are Toon Boom Animate and Anime Studio.

If you have Adobe Illustrator, you can do the following. Create a grid using the Rectangular Grid tool. Make a gradient mesh. Go to Object > Envelope Distort > Make with Mesh and select the number grid lines of lines you want to distort with. Use the direct select tool and grab the handle of the mesh to distort the grid.

The biggest thing you can do is add an texture to the image. Subtle bumps can often give a feel of depth. I can't see the image you posted so that all the advice I can give.
