Not a problem

Photoshop CS6: Gaps in Smart Objects imported from Illustrator

Hi,

I would like to report what I believe is an error in Photoshop CS6 (the latest patches have been installed).

I've only recently purchased CS6 Production Premium and have never posted in this forum before, so apologies in advance if this isn't the correct procedure for reporting errors.

In any case, I'd be grateful if someone knows a workaround as this problem unfortunately makes imported Smart Objects useless in Photoshop CS6.

Thanks in advance.

SYMPTOMS: Gaps appear between elements when an Illustrator CS6 file is imported in Photoshop CS6 as a Smart Object.

Different Image Interpolation settings in Photoshop CS6 were already tested but to no avail.

I wanted like to confirm the issue. It's sad this still hasn't been fixed. For my professional work I need the ability to use adjacent vector shapes created in illustrator as separate smart object layers in photoshop, which, unfortunately, creates gaps that are not present in original illustration.

There is no issue, or anything that can be fixed in Photoshop. You will see the same gaps in Illustrator and most other applications. The only real way to avoid the gaps/lines is to merge the objects in the application that created them.

Abutting objects will not rasterize as solid if you use antialiasing (disabling antialiasing, like Acrobat, can hide the edges).

Just an FYI... the solution to gaps between objects appears to be fixed. I have both Illustrator CS6 and CC. Gaps appear in CS6 although they disappear if I export the image in something like .PNG so technically the gaps aren't *really* there but they're annoying to look at onscreen. Opening the same image in CC, there are no gaps in view at all and at any zoom so problem solved thanks to the Adobe designers. Just subscribe to Creative Cloud if you haven't already. I don't have/use Photoshop for my work so I can't attest as to whether this is an issue in Photoshop CC.

Just in case anyone has come to this forum as I have, I found the answer here;

Hi, I'd like to bump this problem. Jeffrey's workaround won't work in most real-world scenarios. Have a look at the vector file my colleague placed in a PS CC doc:



The wonderful glow effect gets ruined by the gaps.

My workaround: place the file in PS CS5. Which just got really tricky, because PS CS5 crashes very easily in Mojave. Soon I will have to set up one of my old Macs with an older Mac OS, shuttle docs back and forth.

Dear Photoshop Team, please fix this!
