Dear Affinity Designer developers, As much as I like Affinity Designer, can you please add this quite important feature as many people have requested for this since 2014?! I have seen this topic on the forums since 2014 and it is quite frustrating that I am not able to use Affinity Designer for print on demand- the major reasons I purchase AD in the first place. I have enjoyed learning how to use AD for over a year from scratch and I'm not an experienced graphic designer as I'm still learning everyday and still enjoy discovering new features but as seen in the forums, time and time again even with examples of blurry images with jagged edges, it's evident I'm not the only one experiencing this. It's not possible that it's because all of these people complaining don't know what they are doing- even experienced graphic designers have complained about this. Below is an example of a 6000 x 6000 px file exported as a PNG at 300 dpi and imported into RedBubble and the 1st image shows the original scale at 57& as shown on the POD platform, however as the subsequent images show, when scaled down to 35% and 25% respectively, the image becomes fuzzy, with any outlines/strokes appearing pixelated/ jagged and with typographic designs, the fonts become less legible and distorted. It's odd because the more you scale down, the worse it gets. Yet other images on the platform appear crisp and sharp and I bet they used Illustrator. What I have learned is that it has something to do with switching anti-aliasing off when exporting the file. A feature other software like Adobe illustrator have but Affinity Designer doesn't. Apparently switching anti-aliasing off prior to exporting the image makes all the difference, producing that sharp crisp image everyone is after and that's why in the forums people keep asking "how to switch anti-aliasing off" in Affinity Designer (since 2014) and it's still not been resolved. What's the point of designing in a vector graphic software if you can't have crisp sharp exported images? If all of us are wrong can please put out a tutorial showing you export a large high resolution PNG image (image and typography) into a dummy RedBubble account as an example? or show us what we are doing wrong! Thank you.
Hi, please help! Up until 24 hours ago everything was fine, then designer started telling me that some areas will be rasterized upon export. And they are horribly rasterized, please see the attached images. I mainly export in pdf for print, 300 dpi, most of my work is logos,flyers, poster, menus, business cards for print. I also export in png, both formats are rasterized beyond use. I have tried everything that i know and still can not figure out how to fix this. please if someone can help, I have deadlines for work (some have already passed and clients are not happy) that are approaching!! All designer files are resterizing exported work, not just this file. Thank you!! PS, the pdf screenshot below exported with sharp, crisp lines 24 hours ago, now it's exporting like this!!! The other screenshot shows the message that I get, "areas will be rasterized" next to the dpi tab, if I export from the export persona or from the "file" drop down tab I get the same result.
Hi All A few weeks ago I switched to AP after using PSE 11, on and off, for a couple of years. A bit of a steep learning curve for me, but I'm getting to grips with it now. I am getting on quite well with high resolution and RAW images, but much of my work involves working with low and very low resolution images (less than 100kb) making selections time consuming and difficult. The images become extremely pixelated when zooming in to refine selections. Is there a way to improve the quality of the images in AP prior to making selections? Thanks.
Struggling with export to PDF with a couple of pixel layers. Raster object is clear in AD but low res when opened in PDF. Have tried placing the same image into an Illustrator file and displays and exports clearly in AI and PDF. I've attached images of the files in AI & AD ("native") and a screenshot of how it looks on PDF export from Illustrator (AI.png). I'm trying to export a PDF from AD with "downsample" unchecked but the program keeps locking up or crashing. I'm guessing this is the issue with the resolution but can't confirm. Crash report attached. I can email a dropbox link for the AD file if it helps. Any ideas on both issues? AD Crash.txt
