Try exporting the Sketch file as a PDF. Then open the PDF file in Illustrator. From Illustrator export the document as a PSD. Sketch File Formats

pixel2svg has the potential to do this, but it requires some modification of the script. How to do it You need to modify the svgdoc.add call on line 125 of pixel2svg.py to add in opacity attribute. It should look like the following: svgdoc.add(svgdoc.rect(insert = ("{0}px".format(colcount * arguments.squaresize), "{0}px"....

You can not do that on your image as you have it. 1) You want a cylindrical projection on a sphere. First your canvas needs to be at one exact proportion. 3.1416:1 (Use any pixel sized canvas you want, for example 3141x1000px) 2) And you (normally) need the horizon to be at the center of the canvas. On a cylindrical projection (from a sphere) you have a ...

This sounds like a job for .eps. Save your .ai file as .eps, and preferable choose a somewhat older standard if Illustrator asks you for one. .eps is made to be an interchangeable vector format. Especially if, as you say, no gradients or effects are included, it should open reliably and without error.

Yes. A simple trick is to prepare your Photoshop as you always do, and save a .psd file. Then open this file in Adobe Illustrator. You will be asked if you want to convert the layers to objects or to flatten them in a single layer. Select "convert objects". If it doesn't work, verify if the .psd file is in 8bits. Your text is now editable in Illustrator ...

It is very easy with Photopea: File → Open Choose a Sketch file. File → Save as PSD. I am an author of Photopea. If you have any problems, write me an email to support@photopea.com.

The page size (16.81 x 20.14 in.) is exactly the number of pixels at 72 ppi. There's nothing abnormal there. The question is: What page size do you expect? Your PNG are low resolution and Adobe Acrobat simply take what you have and doesn't modify them. If you expect a different page size or would prefer a higher resolution and smaller size, you'll ...

Illustrator doesn't open Sketch files. You'll need to open it in Sketch and export it to a vector format that Illustrator supports; namely PDF, EPS or SVG. Which format you use depends on your artwork... Note: Some effects you can perform in Sketch are not supported by all vector file formats, including transparent gradients in PDFs, and inner and outer ...

Most probably because your export color profile (RGB) does not match your document color profile (CMYK). Change "color model" to CMYK

Resize prior to any lossy compression - this gets you the best quality result for the intended pixel dimensions. Lossy compression like .jpg save space by calculating relationships and change of pixel arrays, so for best effect, you want to do all resizing in the base non-compressed image, and you'll get better results from the placing of the compressed ...

No idea why but identify seems to always assume sRGB. Your image should actually be grayscale. If you use the -verbose option it will report the correct color space. For the bit-depth you need to explicitly set the color-type and bit-depth for the PNG encoder by using -define. This should work: convert test.png -depth 4 -colorspace gray -define png:color-...

You need to check-out the content first to edit the placed ICML. In the layout, select the text or graphics frames to edit and choose Edit > InCopy > Check Out. See Working with managed files If the content is already checked-out it might be that the content was never checked back in again. Find the hidden lock file and delete it. (something ...

As others have suggested, first: Add at least one pixel of transparency to the image (use the corners of the image, where it will be cropped to a circle anyway) Secondly though: Use the mobile interface to upload. Otherwise the desktop interface will convert to jpg when it asks to resize, transparency or not, resized or not. You don't actually need to be on ...

Illustrator files actually already contain PDF data. If you rename an illustrator file from .ai to .pdf, it opens as a PDF in PDF viewers, and the top level of layers of an Illustrator file opened as a PDF will ordinarily be treated as PDF layers. So actually, Illustrator files are already layered PDFs! You don't even need Illustrator to make a basic ...

GIF and PNG are both lossless, the 'best' format to use will depend on the actual content of your graphics. Different styles of illustration and levels of detail will compress differently. Try both and see how you get on. Speed of decompression may be an issue, especially for web use. Again, you may need to experiment. There is a good article about PNG ...

Converting an image file to DST or any other machine embroidery format isn’t same as like converting JPEG to PNG or any other. Also, wilcom truesizer software converts one embroidery file to another one but not from the picture. Instead of that, it requires a manual digitizing process which takes time + effort + techniques. If you want to do it yourself ...

The image looks pixelated because the vector artwork is being rasterized. Edges that don't fall on whole pixels are anti-aliased. Unless there is a specific reason to save as PNG, and I can't imagine what that would be, you should save directly to PDF to retain the vector information. Beyond having a sharper image, vector art usually produces smaller file ...

As suggested in Vincent's answer, the easiest is to convert your PDF to images and I want to post another method that is very quick to do it. You could also lock the editing capabilities of your PDF but the rectangles around your images will still appear when selected. Quick way to flatten or convert an entire PDF into images 1) Do your PDF a you normally ...

As of September 2015, there is no successful way to get a layered Sketch file to work as a layered Photoshop file. I spent some time testing with the recommendations in this thread. Going through Affinity Designer does not work either. However, I was surprised to see that .psd was available in Affinity Designer since it is proprietary. My steps and results:...

Equirectangular image presents a sphere, it's distorted so that meridians and parallels on the sphere are shown as straight vertical and horizontal lines. An example from Wikipedia: In the left there's a spherical map and in the right there's the equivalent plane map, the equirectangular projection from sphere to a rectangle. There's no stretching on the ...

Without access to the file in question it will be hard for anyone to say for certain what your issue is... As an alternative you could always use the free and open source program GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program). See here: GIMP Open your .png file in GIMP by choosing File > Open and then double-clicking on it: And then export your .png as an .ico ...

You need to force Twitter to respect your png. And for twitter png means "transparency". So just add 1 pixel (or line) of 1% transparency and save as truecolor PNG and it should work.

I found a web site called Glyphter which accepted the .svg file I created from your .png image. I changed nothing in the image, but inadvertently assigned it to the letter B. The conversion of the site generated a .ttf and a .woff file which appear to meet your objective. The image below is the windows result of a double click on the .ttf file. The site ...

Sketch is in no way compatible to de Adobe Creative Suite. Only export options that might help are SVG and PDF. From Bohemian Coding: Non-supported file formats for exporting: PSD: Adobe Photoshop’s file format is closed and not supported for export. If you have access to Adobe Creative Suite, you can export your work as .PDF and import to ...

If Jenna's solution isn't sufficient for you, you could try and flatten your .pdf. The easiest way to do this is to export each page as a hi-res .jpg, and re-exporting those as a new .pdf. The .pdf reader won't recognise any object as an object anymore, since all are now pixels in a bitmap. No selection of text or images possible.

I don't know why you would ever want to export as a PNG, convert to JPG, then save as a PDF. Any time you save as a JPG, you are going to lose quality. There is a reason that AI lets you save files directly as a PDF. The image quality will also be greatly affected by the compression settings that you choose in the Save Adobe PDF options that will pop up. ...

Have you tried the TrueSizer Desktop Free edition. https://www.wilcom.com Per their website it can open and convert files to embroidery format for free.

There are two great and abiding principles to keep in mind at all times here: "Scalable" isn't, really; and There is no such thing as "a logo". Those are, I hope, obviously oversimplified statements, but they are nonetheless true. Design clients are only rarely aware of them, and often need some convincing of their truth since they're quite likely to see ...

Changing from AI to CDR is a bad idea. That should not be done for "delivery" to the printer. That only should be done if the other person is going to work on the file for future modifications, (including re-processing a bit the artwork to be simmilar again) Normally, for simple vector artwork (Logos, flat images), the delivery format should be pdf. To be ...

Lossy format exist due to either large color information or large pixel quantity, or both. JPEG for example, compresses most of the color information in clusters so it shrinks the file size in sacrifice of quality. If you have just 4 colors in your index, you can achieve a very tiny file size with either PNG or GIF, since both can rely on indexes to reduce ...
