2d image quality
Read 2843 times

Hi all.

Since I don't usually work with 2d I have got stuck on an issue that's probably easy to resolve.

How do I get rid of the jagglies in a 2d image?
I can't seem to see the wood for the trees.

Is there a quality setting somewhere?

Also is there any way of saving the 2d image as a vector graphic that can be opened in photoshop.

Many thanks in advance.
Regards
Dave

I have found copy & paste to a program that can handle WMF's works........usually you have to right click to get your pasting options....Or Paste Special in the standard menu dropdowns...

Cheers Darrel,

Unfortunately the only program that I have to open WMF's is the basic paint program that comes with windows.
I got around the jaggly edge problem by converting the image to 3D and rendering with raytrace full.

Thats a work around.... ;D

Most Microsoft Office programs Like Word and Excel can paste as metafile......you have to use "Paste Special" though as some paste as TurboCAD object....

I will bear that in mind for future reference.

Still a bit of a novice when you get right down to it.

If want to try another step if save your vector as a EPS. extension when the dialog appears you'll see the set up button to get a clean 2d choose WMF. and max. resolution will get you in CS5

Thanks wd but unfortunately didn't work.

TC 19 message upon saving "You have selected a file format that may not support all of TurboCAD's features."

Opens in CS5 no problem but image deteriorated to the point of useless.

Found this:

when Photoshop won't open the vector-based WMF and EMF clip art files? ...

Copy vector artwork from Word and paste into Photoshop.

It could be a workaround for you?
