  1. So lovely Noor! Sell them all! :D. Btw, the detail of the pods of the sunflower is amazing! So meticulous! How did you create that?

    EPS compatibility

    Thanks so much Dave Harris and MEB for your replies! At least now I know what to do (or not to do) when creating vector files for stock agencies that require compatibility with AI. A bit disheartening to learn that there's no way around this, but at least the issue was identified. I hope this can be resolved someday. Anyway, I'm glad AD users have great support in this forum from staff and moderators. So although AD has certain limitations, rest assured users can always ask for help and be helped out of their issues fast.

    EPS compatibility

    So if my understanding of the above comments is correct, right now gradients made with AD do not comply with vector standards of stock agencies like iStockphoto? I had my EPS image rejected by Dreamstime recently because of rasterisation and I'm at my wits end trying to identify which part was rasterised. I did use gradient in my image but I don't know if that was the reason. The rejection message was "Unfortunately, the additional format you have submitted was not selected.The reason was: The file contains raster (bitmap) elements. This can happen when exporting to a file format that does not support certain types of gradients (such as transparency gradients) or effects (drop shadows, glows, gaussian blurs etc). Please check the exported file and either use generic effects (such as meshes or non-transparent gradients) or choose a more compatible format when exporting." Just to share, I did not use any sort of adjustment or FX or transparent gradients (opacity was 100% for all elements). Anyway, just dropping this message for others to read, especially new designers, because I'm one and there's a lot to learn in this field if we start from another. Also, if there are tips on how to troubleshoot which part of an image was rasterised, I highly appreciate it.
  4. MEB, thanks for wanting to help. I have pm my Google Drive link to you. I don't mind if you share your findings in this forum for the learning benefit of others.
  5. MEB, yes the export was on Postscript 3 and I did not use any transparency. May I send the file to you privately MEB? The image is already on sale now (jpg format) so I don't want to share it publicly in here. I couldn't sell the vector format though because the agency claimed the image has raster elements.
  6. I have trouble exporting in eps. In the export persona, I have stated rasterise nothing, yet I still have my image rejected for containing raster elements. I did not use adjustments or layer effects. I did not use any sort of brush. Just pen mode and some basic shapes given in AD Beta. So how can I know which part of my image was rasterised? I did have some colour gradients in my image (using fill tool, elliptical and linear type). Could this be the cause?
  7. MEB, thanks for your prompt reply. Is this something permanent (due to mathematical/coding limitation) or something that will be improved in the future?
  8. I also have the same problem and posting this to support the above question. Hope someone can help. :)
  9. What about adjustment layers for EPS export? Will it be rasterised too?
  10. I'm new to Affinity Designer and have no experience with any other illustration software. While working on a document, I noticed a faint blue line on some layers shown in the layer's tab. What's this? I will attach a screenshot for that. There are 3 blue lines in the screenshot.Untitled 2.tiff
  11. Is noise a vector or raster effect? I would like to create vector images, but will adding noise compromise this?
