This may be a silly question, but how can a (pre)view of the pixels of a bitmap be more accurate than a pixelated appearance?
So basically most textile and apparel designers will import bitmaps into illustrator and then in pixel preview, it gives a more accurate/non pixelated and smooth clean view of the graphic as it would appear once screen printed. The bitmaps all represent seperate screens. In CS6, pixel preview looks the same as overprint preview in that it is still that pixelated, bitmap appearance. If I save the file as a PDF or jpg it appears correct, just annoying as it was easier to work on it live with an accurate view in illustrator.
Does that make more sense?
Thanks for your help!
It's an option in the preferences. See the "file and clipboard" section.
