I have a png with a transparent background that I’ve imported into Designer on my iPad Pro. Original dpi was 150. I need to upload it to an online vendor that only accepts 300 dpi files. (I know.) Changing the dpi in Designer only seems to work if I uncheck Embed Metadata in the Export screen — but when I do that and save as png, the resulting image has a white background. If I leave the setting checked, the background is transparent but the dpi remains listed as 150. Is it possible to change the dpi of the saved png to 300, but retain the transparency? edit: I’ve discovered that I can make this work if I first create a 300 dpi document and then use Place Image to add my image. I can then turn off embed metadata and retain transparency. Still not sure why I can’t start with an existing png, though.
Daniel81 posted a topic in Bugs on MacHi, Not sure if this is a bug or not, but say I have an image that is: RGB - 240dpi - 250mm wide and I want to change the image to: CMYK - 300dpi - 200mm wide when I then export the image via the "file > export" method, the image retains its CMYK colour mode & the document ICC profile (U.S. Web Coated (SWOP) v2), but doesn't retain the resized width or the updated DPI setting, so the exported image is now: CMYK - 240dpi - 250mm wide - U.S. Web Coated (SWOP) v2 NOT CMYK - 300dpi - 200mm wide - U.S. Web Coated (SWOP) v2 If I then try the same export via the "Export Persona", the image retains its CMYK colour mode, its resized with & the updated DPI, but doesn't retain the document ICC profile (U.S. Web Coated (SWOP) v2), so the exported image is now: CMYK - 300dpi - 200mm wide - no profile / Generic CMYK profile Am I doing something wrong or have I missed something when I'm exporting the image that's causing the difference between the 2 export methods? Any help would be much appreciated.
Hey all, Wondering if you can help me. I've just purchased affinity and am still try to figure it out. :) I'm trying to export .png slices at 300dpi. I have my document setup at 300dpi, but when I export the png slices they are coming up as 72dpi. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for any help!!
dkistner1111 posted a topic in Affinity on Desktop Questions (Mac and Windows)I publish books. I have to submit a PDF file for the wraparound covers that is at least 300dpi to our print-on-demand printer, who then checks the proof and tells me if this condition is met or not. I had templates set up in Adobe Illustrator that were very clearly press-quality, and I never had difficulty with the printer bouncing my files. But now they are bouncing. I tried starting over and setting up a completely brand-new (in AD) template so nothing would be coming over from Adobe Illustrator, but I still haven't resolved my issues. I started with the BookCover6x9_BW_90.pdf file and set up the AD template (both attached). I am using the latest Beta version of AD. In Affinity Designer, I am never confident about what I'm going to get. I can go into Document Setup and change the dpi setting to 300, but it will go back to 72dpi as soon as the file is output. The same is true when I select Print (Press-Ready); it will pop back to Devices and doesn't save with the file. I'm used to working in pixels and know all the numbers I need, but I can't get anything to stay in pixels; it always goes to points, even though I tried to set up my preferences with pixels. I've called myself trying this using Rescale and Anchor to the Page (not understanding exactly how they work relative to dpi), and my template layout won't "hold" to how I set it up. Now, on my latest book, I've somehow wound up with everything output at 200dpi, which has bounced. I know this is just a matter of learning curve for me, but I just want to get a darned template set up that I can use over and over for all the books I do and know it's going to be press-quality when it's output. I'm losing too much time with these files bouncing. Will you please enlighten me? I love, love, love Affinity Designer, but if I'm not going to be able to control the output more easily, it's not going to work for me! BookCover6x9_BW_90.pdf CS-FCP-Cover-Template.afdesign
