Photoshop :: Why To Rasterize An Image?

Apr 24, 2009

I'm working on another tutorial tonight, and I came upon a section that told me to rasterize the layer. I am not having any trouble following the steps, but I don't exactly understand what Rasterizing the image DOES.

Can anyone give me a quick explanation of why you rasterize an image?


Photoshop :: PDF - Rasterize Image

Apr 9, 2008

I have imagery in a PDF which I need to bring into Photoshop and then rasterize. Eventually it needs to go into InDesign so I can resize it without the edges distorting, as pixels do.
However the Rasterize command in Photoshop is grayed out. What do I do?

Photoshop :: Layer Won't Rasterize In CS2

May 3, 2007

I hope you can help me I am working on a project and I have a simple graphic on a layer (a box for text with a stroke) that when I try to rasterize it to apply a gradient mask will not allow any options except to rasterize all layers. I looked at preferences to see if it was a setting and found nothing. I just reinstalled CS2 on a new better computer then I had it on before so I don't understand why this is happening.

Photoshop :: Type Rasterize With Proper PPI?

Mar 20, 2009

Running Vista and CS3. I have downloaded a logo from a client that is a blue rectangle with reversed out type in the middle. The image is a JPEG but at full size looks fine displayed in Photoshop CS3 and is showing a ppi as a little over 300. And yet when I file>place the image into InDesign the type comes out completely pixelated to the point of not even being readable. I've tried saving it as a PSD and TIF but they all still show the same pixeled type. It seems like I'm missing something simple but I'm at a loss. Can anybody suggest what would cause this?

Photoshop :: Rasterize Layer Effects?

May 13, 2004

How would you "rasterize" the layer effects? So that instead of it being the object with the effects on it its just the individual pixels with no effects on them ... does that make sense?

Photoshop :: Can't Filter Rasterize Text

Sep 5, 2007

OK, i'm sure it's something i'm forgetting. Theres lots of tutorials out there that say to rasterize text in order to manipulate it. I've done that before in CS2. Now I have CS3. When I rasterize the text it only gives me access to a very limited amount of filters. I need to use the polar coordinates filter.

Photoshop :: Could Not Rasterize Because Pixel Data For Layer Is Not Directly Editable

Aug 27, 2013

I've taken a color picture and made it black and white by doing the following: Layer>New Adjustment Layer>Hue/Saturation. I brought the saturation down to -100.  The pencil is selected and my foreground color is black.
When I try to select the flowers in my picture to bring out their color (within the black and white image), I get a circle with a black line thru it and the error message "could not rasterize because the pixel data for this layer is not directly editable".  The steps I followed are working for most of my team but some of us are getting this error message.

Photoshop :: Rasterize A Layer With A Layer Style

Jan 16, 2009

I like the way a layer of mine looks with a layer style (color burn) applied to it. I want to rasterize or do something to the layer so that it looks that way when the layer style is normal, kinda of how when you have effects assigned to a layer and when you rasterize it the effects merge with the layer.

Obviously just rasterizing the layer isn't how to do it but its the closest thing I could think of, does anyone know what I could do here?

Photoshop :: Image Size Of Opened Image Changes After I Close The Image

Dec 11, 2007

I am trying to create some images in PS2 that have to be 3.5 to 4.0 mb. When viewing the Image Size screen, I might see an image size of 9.6 mb. However, when I save the image and run my mouse over the image in Bridge, it shows a size between 2 to 3 mb. I can't figure out why this discrepancy, or what math I need to do in order to figure out how to create the required image size other than by trial and error.

Photoshop :: Combine Monotone Image Onto Gray Scale Image To Use In Indesign File

Nov 13, 2012

I'm trying to combine a monotone image onto a grayscale image to use in my Indesign file. The whole job has to print two colors.
How can I easily make the diaper a PMS color and add it to the grayscale baby and still maintain two colors (PMS + K)
Right now, I'm cheating and combining the PMS diaper onto the grayscale baby in Indesign..... but I really need to have this in Photoshop so I can add shadows to make it more convincing. I tried converting the grayscale to CMYK and deleting all channels but black, didn't work as it took away all the information from the image. 
See image below.

Photoshop :: Image Exported - Place On Image (Like Watermark) Misaligned After Save

Jul 19, 2012

I have an action in which it will place an image onto an image like a watermark, when i place the image, it is not center by center so i drag it or use keyboard arrows to center and then press enter, then i saw its on the center, but when i save it, the saved image is not on the center, how was that?
you can see that the right side of border it is not centered because the left side border is thicker than right side, here is the part of the action
you can see that i move the image after i place it because its not on the center so adjusting it makes it at the center but the Translate part is not equal.
