I have 4 Ai files which are going to be individually exported as PNGs. Some parts of the images have curves, while others are straight lines. Before exporting, I click "make pixel perfect" to line everything up to the pixel grid.
I also am creating a 4-panel image composed of all 4 images mentioned above.
When I place the Ai files into a Ps document, the Ai images are no longer pixel-perfect. The fine lines in the Ai files become blended with the pixels bordering them, and the end result isn't a crisp as it could be. The file size is also larger than it needs to be, as the anti--aliasing adds more colors to the document.
Is there any way to line up linked Ai artwork to Ps's pixel grid and keep the original artwork sharp? Should I just be making this 4-panel grid in Ai rather than in Ps?
