I’ve realized this issue is on my end with Corel Draw X7 so I’m moving this over here.
For the life of me I can’t figure out what is happening or what I inadvertently changed in my Corel settings to muck things up. I have had no issues with the hundred or files I’ve made in Corel, but for some reason saving as SVG is now severely compressing my bitmaps, regardless of the settings I’m using. I’m assuming and hoping there’s some setting that got changed elsewhere and I just can’t find.
FWIW old SVGs are importing fine with the bitmaps still intact. PNG and JPG also save fine with no compression; it’s only SVGs.
@jbmanning5 @smcgathyfay @Mike13 @Pwc-phil @shollg @jamesdhatch or any other Corel folks have an idea? (Sorry to spam you all. I’ve gotten so desperate that I was going to try reinstalling Corel, but I’ve torn my house apart and damned if I can find my CDs. )
I saved the image on the left as jpg and then a SVG and imported them back into Corel. Here’s the result.
Here are the settings I’m using (and always have).
