Adobe Illustrator - Transparency Issue
by Dan Smith on May 26, 2015 at 3:40:12 pm

I'm a professional Adobe Illustrator user with over 8 years experience but this issue is leaving me stumped. I've created some artwork for the front of a booklet - it uses 3 jpeg textures set to the Luminosity transparency mode, each contained within a clipping mask around the central cube logo. You can see on the screenshot below how it should look. However no matter what I export to, it ends up looking like the jpg! The transparency mode has been completely ignored. Any ideas? I've never had this before.

What happens if you save and open the ai file into photoshop? Or export to pdf? Also, is the artwork Cmyk or rgb and does the JPEG correspond?

Save early. Save often.
