2d image quality
Read 3033 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.

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?
