(Designer) Adjustment on vector images makes it blurry

Recommended Posts

Can I make an vector image darker keeping it a pure vector image for the printer?



I designed a leaflet in Affinity Designer and printed it out. I noticed that my printer (Canon MG5300) has a lower contrast than my display. I applied a brightness/contrast adjustment on the whole image. The color was ok then.

But the printed picture was blurry because it was sent to the printer as a pixel graphic.


Thank you

Hi Immary,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Yes, all adjustements / filters / FX effects will be rasterised on export no matter the format (except PSD when there's an equivalent).

Only our native format(s) (.afphoto and .afdesign) keep all editable.
