Export has image errors

Recommended Posts

The attached afphoto file has an example of this error.

On-screen, it looks fine (initially). But if you export to Png or Jpg (and possibly other formats), you get the error shown in the second attachment. As you can see, the right hand side is corrupted.


I have attached with a common font so you can load and test. While doing this, I found that simpler fonts did not have the same issue.


The problems can also be seen on screen if you resize or drag the text around. Different errors occur as you resize and move it.

I also get a number of errors if I copy this text to another document. The combination of layer effects seem to be incompatible with one another.

Hi Batvink,
Thank you very much for the file. It looks like this is being caused by the Perspective Filter interfering with the Outer Glow FX. I'll get it passed onto development. It's not just the right hand side, for example it is quite noticeable on the Y & and P characters. The green fill should cover all the areas that look like a 'shadow'.

In the meantime the only thing I can suggest is that you disable the Outer Glow, Create a Merged Layer and then apply the Outer Glow to that.
