Affinity designer: export as psd without quality loss

Recommended Posts

Hello,

My designer sends me designs as PSD files. Now I want to open them and make some small changes within Affinity Designer. Then I will send them to my web developer, to create my website. My web developer has only Photoshop not Affinity Designer. When I try to export the changed design to PSD, the quality suffers and it looks like the vecors became bitmaps. What do I have to use in the export settings to get perfect quality? 

Thank you very much for your help.

All the best,

Christian

Hi HalloChristian,

What elements are losing quality?  If it's text, then we do export text out as a raster object as we are not currently able to write to a PSD file.  Converting these to curves and then exporting should resolve that BUT it does mean the text won't be editable in Photoshop, as it's not longer text.

If it's not text, please upload the original PSD document, along with the one you exported here and we can look into this.
