Using an svg file as backdrop without blur

When I try to use a self drawn cityscape svg and import it, all the lines are blurred when I size it to be the backdrop to the scribe.

The lines are simple pen drawn  lines.

At a smaller scale, the image is fine.

The artboard I'm using is 400 x 400 and the application is illustrator.

Can anyone tell what I'm doing wrong?



If you import any image and then scale it larger than the visible canvas area, it is probably going to be blurry.

You could instead make a group of buildings large enough to fill the visible canvas, then import about 4 or 8 copies and tile them or overlap them to make a larger city scene that is several screens wide and high.

increasing the default quality setting also makes images sharper at larger sizes (but uses more memory too, and may result in crashing or freezing or other problems).


Thanks Mike, I'll give that a go. Appreciate y our quick response :)
