Chapter 26. RASTER IMAGES > Rasterizing FreeHand Graphics

Rasterizing FreeHand Graphics

You might want to convert FreeHand’s vector graphics into their pixel-based equivalents. (For instance, you might want to apply a Photoshop filter to the raster file.)

To rasterize an image:

1.
Select the vector objects you want to convert.

2.
Choose Modify > Rasterize. The Rasterize dialog box appears 10.

Figure 10. The Rasterize dialog box controls how artwork is converted into a pixel-based image.


3.
Set the resolution to the amount you need.

TIP

Most print work use a resolution of 300 dpi. Web graphics need only 72 dpi.

4.
Set the anti-aliasing amount. This smooths lines or edges in the image with a slight blur.

TIP

High resolutions and high anti-aliasing require more memory for the FreeHand application.

5.
Click OK. The objects turn into rasterized art embedded in the file 11.

Figure 11. Use the Rasterize command at two different resolutions and anti-aliasing amounts.
