I am trying to export leaves and branches from Illustrator. I would like the area which is not branches and leaves to be transparent (the white part in the image below), and the area which is leaves and branches to be entirely opaque (green part below).
＾ This is what one of the objects look like in the Illustrator window
＾ Here are the Gradient settings, both colors in the gradient are 100% opaque
＾ Object's Opacity settings: It is set to opaque there too
＾ This is the Appearance panel, all seems fine there too...
＾ Here are my Save for Web settings (which allow me to have better control of the file format settings)
＾ But when I drag them into Photoshop (or any other app!), the leaves are transparent!
Why, oh why, cannot the produced file match the Object's transparency settings?
