The "Rasterizing" function in Affinity Designer 2.2.1 gives catastrophically bad results.


Recommended Posts

Zooming to 100% would could avoid most of the catastrophe.

Using png format for screenshots would avoid another part resulting from jpeg lossy compression.

please always upload the actual .afphoto documents. In case of non-standard fonts are used, please add an PDF export with fonts embedded.

100% zoom does not change anything! I have also tried rasterising other typographic work in Affinity Designer 2.2.1 - the result is very poor. Even after exporting as PNG and JPG, the quality is miserable.

The problem is mainly with ISO Coated v2 (ECI). I have changed to PSO Coated v3 and the "Rasterizing" results and exporting as PNG and JPG are fine again.

Any chance?

Hi @Designer1,

As NotMyFault mentioned could you possibly send us a copy of your affinity document so we can take look? If you could also include a line of text which has not been rasterized for comparison that would be great.

I setup a standard 300DPI A4 document using your font (89pt) and then compared 2.2.0 to 2.2.1 and there were no visible/quality differences when rasterising the text in 2.2.1.

2.2.0:

2.2.1:

Thanks for the update, although I have just installed that profile, created a new identical doc to my previous one but with it set to ISO Coated v2 (ECI) profile and rasterized the text again with no visual difference between the previous. If you can still replicate it on your doc using that profile it would be beneficial if you could provide me with a copy of the doc. 🙂

Many thanks
