Hello, i often buyadobe stock illustrator files with transparent backgrounds (for example AdobeStock_237738943), but i am quite unable to use them properly in indesign or photoshop. Most of the time i get the chequered background when exporting the image – and no trasparency. Things get even worse when for example objects are used which contain blurs or gradients. These appear also not correct. I tried to copy the illustrator document into photoshop using the new layer feature but unfortunately there where too many layers. So that didn't work either. So: how do i handle such documents?1

Is the checkered background on a separate layer? If so, what happens when you simply turn it off in Illustrator?

You can only use these files in Illustrator. Please watch the video I posted below.

Hab ich mir gerade angesehen. Das ist natürlich einigermaßen ernüchternd und unbefriedigend, d enn normalerweise benutze ich die so gekauften Elemente in anderen Layouts wie z.B. indesign. Zum "reinen selbstzweck" sind sie ziemlich unnütz also.

Andere Elemente kann man natürlich auch in InDesign oder Photoshop verwenden, aber gerade diese, deren Wirkung auf der Interaktion von Füllmethoden (Negativ Multiplizieren & Co) beruht, entfalten diesen speziellen Look nur in Illustrator.

 

Photoshop und InDesign haben zwar auch diese Füllmethoden, aber Photoshop kann sie nicht so zuweisen wie Illustrator und in InDesign könnte es nur funktionieren, wenn man die Elemente per Copy/Paste aus Illustrator übertragen könnte (ich habe noch nicht probiert, ob das gelingen könnte - man hätte dann aber sehr viele Objekte in InDesign, was wieder ein anderes Problem wäre)

Wie ich sagte: äußerst unbefriedigend und deshalb eigentlich nicht zu gebrauchen – leider. Ich hatte die Hoffnung, es läge an mir 😉

Gibt es vergleichbare Motive nicht vielleicht auch als Photoshop-Dateien?

Als Photoshop pds meistens nein, jpg vielleicht – womit sich die Transparenzen leider ja auch schon erledigt haben. Illustrator/Vektordateien bieten eben auch viele Vorteile (Skalierbarkeit, einfaches färben, Elemente können ev noch anders positioniert werden etc), die Pixelbilder nicht so oder nicht so einfach ermöglichen. 😞
