Photoshop: Resizing Smart object from illustrator

Illustrator smart object looks horrible. I place the file as a smart object and it is fine. When I scale it down the edge goes a bit jaggy and picks up a strange black fringe. Went back to CS5 so I can get it done to get the file to my client and CS5 works fine. Is this the correct way to report a bug to the Photoshop team? I have a small JPG screen grab to show, but the Add Image does not work well. I choose to upload and after 5 minutes the upload never finishes? The JPG of the screen is only 74kb.

Thx.
Mike

Thanks for the report Mike, this is a great place to post it --- Can you record a video of the behavior using a video screen capture application? Jing is one that is free and easy -- http://www.techsmith.com/jing.html

We need to get a copy of the Illustrator file.

I think it's a consequence of the way Illustrator writes the drop shadow, plus changes to the rasterization code in CS6 (generally much higher quality, and faster, but sometimes shows issues in artwork that CS5 hid).

Hi Chris.

Thanks for looking into this. I zipped up the .ai file along with it's PSD link.

Glad to know your working on this. I met you long ago, I believe when I was running a Daystar Genesis prior to you going over to Adobe. Back when Schewe and the other Chicago Photoshoppers were going to Seybold.

Looks like a bug to me. I tried different interpolation methods but they all seemed to have the same results.

Let me know what you uncover.

Looks like something is wrong in the transparency handling of the rasterizer.

If you flatten the PSD (or add a white background), then place it in Illustrator - it works and rasterizes as expected. But as long as the PSD has transparency, it can get artifacts on the transparent edges.

Now written up in our bug database (PR#3325145) for investigation.

Daystar - that's been a while, probably while I was working on the PowerShop accelerator card.
