I can't see these in the screenshot you've provided - however this usually happens when your design is not aligned to Full Pixels. Could you please provide a copy of your Affinity file to the following link so I can look into this for you?

This depends, what format have you exported to please? What is the pixel size of your exported document?

It might not be helpful for you to start a new topic if you don't like or understand the given answers.

Instead you could try to express your concerns more precise, with words and/or with Affinity documents and/or with screenshots. In case of screenshots you can additionally place markers (circles, arrows) and/or text comments ("this is blurry", "this is not blurry") or crop the screenshot to relevant parts.

In case you don't understand you also might do a online research to get a basic understanding of resolution, pixel, vector and their fundamental aspects and differences. The fact that you seem not to see a relation between object size and object detail resolution or between monitor pixel grid and vector view gives the impression you are confused by different aspects without noticing it.

Also it would help to distinguish file formats, for instance .jpg versus .afdesign, especially when you upload a file you was asked for, to possibly comprehend and retrace an issue you see.

My question is when expert my design I would like to know how to make it not blurry . I just need the techniques. 

Thanks for your screenshots - you're exporting to a relatively small raster image, 576px x 576px.

As the physical dimensions of your exported image are rather small, there's only so much pixel data that can fit in the image - I'd recommend either enlarging your Artboards within your document, then exporting, or alternatively changing the dimensions of your export to 3-4 times larger than currently (ie 2304px x 2304px) and exporting again.

I also suggest changing your Resample option to Lanczos 3 Separable for a slightly sharper export image.

I hope this helps!

Hi Dan C, thank you so much for your support. 

1- You said I export Small raster image, But I wanted to export Vector image. How can I export vector image? How can I know is raster or vector image when I export it?

2- Do you please know how can I export the dimensions of your export to 3-4 times larger than current one? 

Thank you.

To begin with, choose a file format that supports vectors. The JPEG file format does not support vectors so there is no way to export to that format without everything in your document being converted to a raster image.

As @thomaso mentioned earlier, if you do not understand fundamental concepts like the difference between vector & raster image formats, you need to start with that.
