Pixelated SVG File when imported into Affinity Photo

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, ok, so I am having issues with my svg vector artwork that I imported into Affinity Photo. The image looks normal when at 100 % zoom then when I zoom in it gets pixelated... although when I export in pdf or svg it looks fine. Is there an option I am missing somewhere? I just want to be able to zoom in and see the file how it will look when I export.  Please let me know if you have an answer or suggestion? Thank you

Hi Darken Still,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

This is because Affinity Photo rasterises the view for display which is what you'd expect from a photo editor. If you open the same SVG file in Designer you will see it as vectors (no rasterisation for display unless you enable it in the View Mode menu).
