EPS exported but has background

Recommended Posts

I need to turn this in....another client wants it in eps.  So, I exported it as an eps and clicked no background.  It has a background.  Any suggestions?  Thank you!

Hi Firstdefence!  I tried that just now and it did make the document transparent, so I exported it as eps.  When I went to reopen it, its back to a white background :(

Try this.

  • Create a document in Affinity Designer
  • Add rectangle and colour it to something other than white, maybe a nice blue #D2EBEB
  • Now File > Place... the eps file in that document.

Can you see the blue?

If you can, congratulations you have an eps with a transparent background.

i downloaded free version of IA...here is what it looks like.  I know nothing about it so is this transparent?  I don't know what that white rectangle is behind and couldn't get rid of it, but didn't try that hard.

Did you used a document with a transparent background when you created your web buttons and menus? - You can set that up when you create an AD document under the color tab on the new document panel. Further you can try to make a copy of your file, then open that file copy and apply/change the document background to transparency on the document settings panel (again see the checkbox under the color tab on that one).

As you can see, in case you created the document with a solid color background (a white one etc.) you can also change the document background afterwards then to be instead transparent for the document and then resave as EPS.

Note further that not all third party viewers etc. do always show up a transparent backgrounds, meaning here even a drawing might does have transparency, some tools don't show it that way up since they (the third party tool to preview) always may have some solid background on which they displays images and drawings. So it's sometimes also tool dependent if they can show and indicate you the transparency or not here.
