For fixing gradient issues, I need to paste the Illustration from Illustrator to Photoshop. Now, the issue is explained in the image I have shown at the end.
- This is the original illustration. For some reasons (like reuse), I can't remove the parts which are outside the artboard.
- I need the final output in 1600x1200px . So I resized it to 1600x1200. But to maintain the illustration same edges of illustration (see arrows in image 1), I simply couldn't select all and resize it. I needed to put a clipping mask on it. So I resized it perfectly with same outlines/edges (1)
I created a new file in Photoshop with same DPI, and 1600x1200 px resolution. Pasted the clipped illustration as Smart Object. And here I faced the problem. I thought it would be a perfect fit, but it didn't, probably because of the invisible art? And just because of that, if you know, you can't simply resize it to fit the canvas perfectly. (NB: I could somehow fix it with resizing the pasted object in Photoshop, but I needed exact same outline/edges. I would need to do hit and trials for that. There were some imperfections of white space either in left/right/top or bottom. I don't want that.)
I tried another approach to fix it. Instead of clipping mask, I cropped it. That solved all problem. Was pasted perfectly on the canvas. But that caused the problem that I have exaggerated in ( image 4, i.e., every object gets divided and independent. As a result, the final saved image shows some imperfections. I don't want that either.)
So what can I do that to fix it or is there still any better way to do it?
