Hello everyone,

I am new to this forum, be patient with me. So my question is. How could I fix distorted images? When I export or save in a .svg or .pdf file extension from Illustrator is perfect, then I use it in an Excel as a logo to finally save it as a PDF, this image is not kept as the original. I have tried checking the Acrobat and Excel versions and others possible solutions but nothing works, I think the only solution would be to change the blur in the center of the image by another method, but I still can't do it, someone could help me please.

I would appreciate any help in advance.

 

I could no t attach an .ai file extention to sow my problem.

Hello, shivocnavi.
I tried it on a windows 7 machine and it turned out to be what you're describing.

So, I expand this logo and saved it as an SVG file. And it worked.
Please give it a try.

Without any idea about how it looks, the specifications of the graphics, your method of using them in Excel and so on nobody can tell you anything.

Thank you.

the link below is the .ai file that I have been working.

as I said, this logo is what I want saved as  .svg. When I used it in excel everything is excellent, but then when I want to save it from excel to pdf the image is distorted as you can see in the following link.

That RAR is not supported.

A screenshot is not an option?

 

Apart from that: if it's OK as an SVG and only looks different after exporting from Excel, then the issue acannot be solved in Illustrator.

It's a story out of the frying pan, into the fire.

 

I'm sorry, but I don't use Windows much, so I'm not sure.
This thread is getting harder to see, so it's probably better to post it as a new question.

I have a few things that bother me a bit, so I'll add them up.
I think the PDF side of the image you posted at the end may be rough.
Is this creating a PDF from the print menu?
When I create a PDF from a print menu, it creates a bitmap image instead of vector data.
I think it's better to save it as a PDF or create an export PDF.

 

Maybe the size thing also depends on how you write it out.
