I have a vector eps plot on which I add gradient shade in Inkscape. However, when I save as eps again, the gradient part of the plot is pixelated.

Does anyone has solution for this, that is to save a gradient in vector form?

    A solution yes, don't use EPS. Use SVG. – Billy Kerr Sep 21 '18 at 18:20
  • If you put the gradient below, you can: 'Edit > Make a bitmap copy' and then 'Path > Trace bitmap (with enough colors)' to get a gradient that consists of multiple objects, each with a simple, flat, one-color-only fill. – Moini Sep 22 '18 at 21:32
  • @BillyKerr: I need submit the figure in a journal article, where they accept only eps or png images. – SKPS Sep 23 '18 at 16:49
