Hello! I've created line drawing icons in Procreate, saved those files as PSDs, and then opened them in Illustrator with the hopes of exporting them as SVGs with transparent backgrounds. A few weeks ago I was able to export these transparent SVGs with no problem, but recently, everything has come out with a white background added in.
I'm new to this but have seen people requesting workflow for solutions, so here's mine:
- I right-click the PSD file in my downloads folder and click "open in illustrator"
- I turn on the transparency grid, and check that the file has no background. It looks like this:
- I click "Export" > "Export As > SVG. Sometimes I click "use artboards," and sometimes I don't — I've been trying a couple different things. These are the settings the SVG exports with:
- I click "OK," and the file appears as an .SVG, but when I upload it to Google Drive / drop the file into other softwares, it appears with a white background. I really need it to have a transparent background.
