Can this be done? If so, how?
save (export or print) your .emf as .pdf -- open the .pdf in Photoshop, raster at desired resolution (ppi)
your original pixels will have to be at least the target dimensions/resolution or they will pick up pixelation, the vector/text objects should not be a problem retaining sharpness at any size
i notice you want 300ppi
use Photoshop File> Save As (because Save for Web will likely output at 72ppi)
note that File> Save As .png embeds a ICC profile regardless of what the dialog says
if you don't want a profile embedded, you better check the saved .png ...
This is great. Thanks!
Couple more questions:
-When I open the converted .png, the res is 299.999 dpi, which I suppose is fine right? But why is that happening.
-It's also opening with a transparent background. Should that be happening?
It's happening because PNG specifies resolution in pixels / meter, and stores it as a fixed point. The conversion to and from meters to inches loses some precision when stored as a fixed point value. (this is really a problem in many applications that read and write PNG)
In Photoshop CS6 I changed the PNG code to recognize "near" integer values and snap them to the nearest integer.
Thanks! How do you change the PNG code?
And after converting the emf to PDF, why is the Photoshop PDF opening in Photoshop with transparency? Is there a way around that? Or just add a non-transparent layer?
How do you change the PNG code?
Chris writes the actual Photoshop code (I believe) I don't think it's something we can do (if I understand your ? correctly).
Image> Image Size> Resolution: typing 300 over the 299.99 doesn't stick or does it throw your pixel dimensions off?
PDF opening in Photoshop with transparency? Is there a way around that?
File> Save As
unchecking some of the Save options may have a similar effect on transparency, layers, ect
