How do I get a vector rendering out of FreeHand 10 and convert it to a HIGH RESOLUTION GIF or JPEG? I've tried everything. I have copied special and put into PhotoShop CS and tried that.

    Default Hell of a time converting file toHi-Res GIF/Jpeg

    I am new to the formums. But I cannot get my high res renderings to convert to
    GIF or JPEG for web. Now , don't get me wrong, I can convert them very easily,
    BUT the resolution is just awful!

    HELP! How do I get a vector rendering out of FreeHand 10 and convert it to a
    HIGH RESOLUTION GIF or JPEG?

    I've tried everything. I have copied special and put into PhotoShop CS and
    tried that. Still BAD, Saved as a AI file and put into PS...still no cigar.
    Comes out OK, but all bitmapped looking. Like it is 72dpi. I am trying to
    have a low res small version with a pop up (on my webpage) of a Hi Res version.
    I am a consultant specializing in Industrial design and technical renderings.
    So I want to show off my work. Tough when the result is so bad it is hard to
    tell what your looking at.

    HELP!! HELP!!!!

    Thanks in advance

    Did you crank up the resoulution in the export dialog box?

    It's set to 72 DPI by default so that's what you get unless you change
    it. You also would want to set anti-aliasing to a value of 3 or 4.

    Hey Martin where are the settings at for exporting a JPEG? When I export (I
    just did it for a test) my line drawing to JPEG, it just does it with NO dialog
    box to adjust anything??? You select export>JPEG and the file location you
    want it to go, thats it. No other adjustments???

    In the Export dialog you should see a button labeled 'Setup' which calls up a window that has resolution, anti-aliasing, and alpha channel settings. There is also a button in the 'Setup' window labeled 'More' that has jpeg compression quality settings.
