Hello All

I am new to Adobe all together so there could easily be something that I am missing here. The issue is when I copy a vector image from illustrator and paste it into photoshop it goes from being a crisp vector to being a pixelated smart object.

 

Illustrator Vector:
AI Vectors.PNG

 

Photoshop smart object:

AI Vectors in Photoshop.PNG

 

I have checked to verify that the anti-alias box is checked in photoshop. I tried resizing the vectors in illustrator then moving them to photoshop which understandably didn't do anything. I'm at a loss here. Any advice? Thank you!

What is zoom or maginification level in Photoshop? Press Ctrl + 1 then judge. Photoshop is raster based program and it creates quickly preview for any magnification level the only accurate and worth judging level is at 100%.

You were absolutely right! At 100 percent it was perfectly clear. So I suppose it will print clear? Or if I am making the. Into designs for shirts they would screen print properly.

Presuming that the document resolution in Photoshop @ 100% or 1:1 print size was sufficent for the output method, then yes they would print clear. This is of course the advantage of vector data.
