comment How can I convert my raster design to vector for print?
@scott odd, I see just the opposite. Open PSD > set type on one layer > SAVE AS Photoshop PDF = open pdf and type is clearly rasterized if I open it in preview, for example. Maybe it depends on version of PhotoShop.

Maybe only vector shapes retain vector data. Type gets rasterized regardless?

@Scott I just tried saving a PDF with only type layers out as a "Photoshop PDF" and even then it rasterized the type within the PDF. So I'm not sure one can export type as vector via Photoshop into a PDF (unless there's a setting I'm missing somewhere)

comment How can I convert my raster design to vector for print?
But I can see where maybe the confusion is coming from. Some programs, such as Photoshop, can export data both ways if the file is set up that way. For example, you can set type in Photoshop. If you export that as a raster, it's raster. If you export it as a PDF, Photoshop may retain the type as vector. But note there is no 'conversion' happening here. This is entirely dependent on the source file. In general, you can't convert raster DATA to vector just by making a PDF. if there is vector data in the source file, you could EXPORT that in a PDF and retain it.

@septronic, I'm sorry, but that is incorrect. A PDF isn't a vector format any more than it's a raster format. It's a document format, that may contain vector data, raster data, or both. The quote from the article also doesn't imply that it even COULD convert to vector, so I don't know where you're getting that.

comment What is this font on this shirt?
It's a shame they used a font. That could have been easily done by hand and had a bit more personality (and less repetition).

Fonts don't match businesses. You have to choose typefaces that fit your design and the overall objectives of the project.

comment Does making pictures with bigger dimensions than actually needed enhance their quality?
@Abhimanyu in terms of pixels, yes. Whether you start with a 300x300px, or start with a 3000x30000px image and shrink it down to 300x300px, you end up with the same thing.
