Export doesn't work properly RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm creating icons for use in a web app.  These are relatively simple.  

    I created a canvas size of 16 x 16  pixels, 72 dpi resolution.  Why does the icon show up properly when I am in the export window, but the right and bottom sides are cut off after export?  I have antialias and transparency checked, RGB color mode, exporting as PNG, and the export size is the same as the canvas size or larger (if Expression design recommends it).

    When I export at 20 x 20, the export window shows gaps all the way around, but the resulting exported image is what I expected when I exported at 16 x 16.  Why does the render engine not work properly?

    I have Service Pack 1.

  • This thread is really old, but I wanted to mention that my issue with direct exporting was being caused by the effects that I had on the image.  Expression Design is not very friendly if you are trying to reach a certain size, but for jobs without exact constraints, it's decent.

    In Design 3.0
    I made a 640 x 480 artboard @ 72 DPI
    Drew a 16x16 square and inside it a 14x14, centered
    selected the slice tool
    fit it to the larges square
    export

    open in paint, it all there

  • You answered my question.  I didn't create a slice and export the slice; I tried to export the entire design, which is how I came across the problem I mentioned in the rendering.
