Low Export Quality!!

Recommended Posts

Hi There,


I have created a header in Affinity Designer and am looking to export as both a PDF and a JPG or PNG. 


The quality of the PDF is fine, but the quality of the JPG and the PNG is awful (and unusable)! I am exporting as a high quality JPG, so can't see what else I can do. I would of course expect some difference moving from vector to pixels, but this seems ridiculous.


If I use a screen grab (saved as PNG) on my Mac the quality is fine, so why can't I get this quality from a direct export.


Any help appreciated.

Hi There,


Thanks so much for the replies. 


I think I've maybe worked it out.


The original document was set up at 72dpi. I've resized to 300dpi and the export seems fine. 


I would have thought the 72dpi (screen res) would still have looked okay on the screen though? - not an expert so could be completely wrong on this.

Thanks again
