Hi all! I'm new to Affinity and was loving how easy it was to import stuff until today. I searched the forums and it looks like there are several folks with some EPS image problems where opening an EPS turns to grayscale. I bought an EPS from istockphoto and something is indeed wonky with it, thought it isn't the same as other described issues.

Instead of being a good quality EPS, it's basically a tiny, poor quality, pixelated image with layers. The EPS even has some text/curves and when I try to simply hide those layers, they don't hide. I want to use this image as a background for a very large presentation at a tradeshow in a couple of weeks, and I can't seem to open the file correctly. I wonder if I could open it in AI and save as an AI file if it would then open correctly in AFdesign. Is there anyone out there that could try that for me? Or, I am open to any other fixes. My capture image shows how it is supposed to look (minus the watermark) and my EPSquality image shows what I am seeing. EPS also attached. Any help would be much appreciated!  THANKS in advance.

Hi digitalchristine and Welcome to the Forums,

Thanks for the file.  If you see this reply here it explains what's happening.  I've managed to export the EPS as a PDF from AI and have attached it to this post.  The PDF opens fine and doesn't appear pixelated :)
