  1. @Jbasya of course I can't let you upgrade until your prints match your screen. Can you post the photo files that you've been comparing, and tell me which ones differ?
  2. Yep, it has to be the first step in PS. https://www.damiensymonds.net/2015/07/order-of-layers-for-complex-pixel-edits.html
  3. PNG files are pixel files, so they're no good. You have to ask for the logos to be sent in vector format (eg .pdf or .ai); or recreate them yourself in vector format.
  4. Thanks. And have you created it entirely with vectors in Illustrator?
  5. These are all quite old-fashioned requirements, to be honest. As long as you're sending your finished artwork as a PDF file, the PDF saving process will take care of all of it. PDF will take care of it. PDF will take care of it. The "resolution" in Illustrator is irrelevant. You'll set the output resolution in the PDF saving process. PDF will take care of it. This part makes me nervous. May I see what the design looks like?
  6. No, not even close. PLEASE take the Raw Class, I beg you. You're a LONG way away from achieving Noelle-Mirabella-esque results.
  7. Do you think you'll be able to modify my InDesign document ok, if you need to? You'll see I set it up with layers, like a Photoshop document.
  8. What did you decide about the black, @Michelle G? Are you going to leave it as true black?
  9. You've got 1-3 ok now, but definitely not point 4.
  10. For some reason it won't let me view your link. I'll try again shortly.
  11. I forgot to show you this, too. You'll find it useful if you're embarking on more of this kind of work in the future.
  12. https://ask.damiensymonds.net/topic/107-read-this-first-posting-guidelines-and-download-files/ Please read Points 1-4 again.
  13. If all you are outsourcing is the deep etching (and it sounds like that's the case here) then you would do all your editing on the images first. You would save your master PSD files as usual. Then you would save those files as maximum quality jpegs, and send them off. They would send them back, also in jpeg format, but with the clipping paths included. Is that what they did? Made the background pure white? That definitely wasn't necessary, they shouldn't have done that. Are the clipping paths saved in the files? If you open a file, then go to your Paths panel, is there anything there? If not, they cocked up.
