I've created a triangular grid using smart guides and everything looks ok in outline mode. However when I try to copy and paste to photoshop I continue to get these relic 1px lines at the margins of the triangles. Would love to know how I can get rid of these. They also appear when I export as raster from Illustrator. pixelated margins

  • Is this zoomed-in in Photoshop? You will always get jagged edges when looking at graphics on a computer screen as all pixels are squares and you do not have diagonal pixels to display information.

  • Thanks for the help Andrew. Yes, this image is zoomed in from Photoshop. The grid's look fine in Illustrator, however when I copy and paste them as a smart object in Photoshop the lines remain. There is no stroke applied to the grids, but outline mode suggests everything is lined up correctly. When I export as a Tiff and bring into Photoshop, everything looks good. I tried running script to apply the same stroke colour as fill, but the issue persisted. Thanks again.

  • I've also tried exporing as .eps but the lines are still present. Tiff is fine.

What I did was to make a copy of the layer and merge all into a single form and placed under the original, to make some sort of a "background" and it helped.

There are no more transparent strokes in photoshop, but I doubt it's the best alternative.
