Why? Because PNG is a lossless raster image format developed for the web, and ultimately for display screens which are RGB. However the format was never intended or designed to be a print format, and therefore doesn't need to support CMYK colour, and so it's entirely the wrong format to use for CMYK printing - i.e printing where separations are required ...

I keep another instance of Inkscape running on the side and just copy-paste the object I want to save into the scratch document, then save. Another option if you just want the path data is to select the object, Shift+Ctrl+X to open the XML editor, grab the pieces you want (usually the d attribute), then paste to wherever.

You can open AI files in Inkscape, an open-source vector graphics editor for free on Windows, Linux, and Mac. What formats can Inkscape import/export? Inkscape natively supports opening or importing SVG, SVGZ (gzipped SVG), PDF and Adobe Illustrator (.ai) formats. And, as of version 0.91, Inkscape can import CDR (CorelDraw) and VSD (Visio) ...

Because you did not check the Use Artboards option on the export window, Illustrator defaults to exporting everything in your workspace. But I would recommend using the File > Save for Web... command, instead. Save for web has the advantage of allowing you more control over the output. For example, you can even preview how things are going to be rendered ...

The XML used for an Android VectorDrawable resource is specific to Android and therefor not something you will easily be able to export from any general image editing software. You have a number of options. Android has Vector Asset Studio, with which you can import an SVG file to and export the XML resource you need. SVG to VectorDrawable Converter is a ...

Broadly speaking there are two schools of thought on file-format design. One is that you should have lots of options to give lots of different users what they want. The problem with this approach is that compatibility becomes a problem. Just because a program advertises support for tiff files doesn't mean it can open your particular tiff file. The other is ...

Not sure I 100% understand your question, but sounds like you have many icons and only need one...? Just create a new document in illustrator. Copy over the icon you need. Select the icon, then choose File > Document Setup > Edit Artboards Then in the top left choose Presets: Fit to selected art. Then save as an .svg If there are other icons/objects in the ...

In the Export dialog box, tick the 'Use Artboards' option. This saves the image including the containing artboard, what you're seeing as the white frame behind your logo. If you need to re-adjust the white area (the artboard), hit Shift+O and drag the square handles which will appear at the edge of each side or at the corners.

The best way of doing this is by using the crop tool (you can also use the rectangular marquee tool>image>crop) then save your image as PNG. Then if you wanna cut the rest of the images, then you're just gonna have to go to your history panel and undo the cropping (this will not undo the saved PNG file) then do the same thing as what you did with the ...

Feeling your pain. Short answer: AI SVG export is (one of) the reason(s) I need therapy. Long answer: I've successfully exported SVG from AI (CS6) with id's. See below: Turns into: <g id="ZONES"> <path id="Zone3" fill="none" stroke="#000000" stroke-miterlimit="10" d="M756.485,373.758l-1.764,8.361l16.43,3.908l-0.426,2.34 l6.586,1.164l0.533-2....

EPS is "Encapsulated PostScript," which pretty much gives you its origin and its purpose. It's a legacy file format that permits a visual representation of PostScript code. The only benefit of EPS today is that it's theoretically usable by any vector graphic application, no matter how old, and by legacy equipment such as older computer-controlled engraving ...

More on unique features of EPS. PDF is a distilled EPS , that is all the intelligence the EPS file contained has been stripped away. For example, since the EPS is intended to be executed at the printer or RIP stage it can use the printers settings. So the logo could decide to print a specially made black and white version instead of printing a grayscale ...

Export> Export for screens Choose PDF as format (Press the settings icon to change preset). Enter name into the Prefix window. The name of the artboards should append after that name.

Since the requirements change from time to time, it's always a good idea to refer to Apple's guidelines. There's an Affinity Designer template on my website that I've develop that exports the 18 sizes that are currently required for universal applications.

For people who landed here from a google search because this question references Inkscape but isn't tagged with Windows, here's a complete howto for Linux (this assumes you have Inkscape installed on your system - tested on Ubunut 14.04 with Inkscape 0.91). Create a file in the directory where you want to convert your SVGs to PDFs. (I used gedit below but ...

The web is all sRGB all the way. If you upload an image created in ProPhoto or Adobe RGB, it will show on the web as if it were sRGB. The result is a large or small color change, depending on the image. This is guaranteed to happen if your image doesn't have an embedded color profile; there are few circumstances in which a color profile will be acknowledged. ...

It's the .png format that is the problem. .png is a raster format that will not upsize very well, just like any raster format. You need to save it in a vector format, such as: .ai - You'll most likely want to save everything to this format for your own safe keeping because it retains all editability unlike other formats. You would then save the same file ...

It's actually very easy if you know how to do it :) Suppose you have an icon that is 24x24px and you want the png to be 32x32px. You have to create a slice over the icon. The slice must be 32x32px. Then group the slice and the icon together. Last but not least: click on the slice and in the inspector you will see something like this: Make sure you check "...

The InDesign document stores the name of the PDF you exported. That way the next time you export the file name will be the same. So after you export, the document is unsaved because it wants to include the actual PDF file name you used, that's all. You can choose to save or ignore. It doesn't really matter. Other Adobe apps do the same thing at times: ...
