hi guys, I'm brand new to this business

I've started 2 months ago to create vectors and I have a problem , maybe can help me.
I'm working in Inkscape and save my vector file as svg file then I export it as a raster file then save it in eps format. problem is that my eps file doesn't look right in preview, problems of opacity. Anything I can do in Inkscape to save it right , in order to look nice like the svg file.
Thanks

I'm not sure I can help you, but when I was using Canvas and converted a file to vector EPS, the result wasn't good.  Raster files would be ok, but the EPS would not open correctly in AI or PS or even in my PSP.

Once you rasterize a file, you cannot turn around and make it a vector file again.

you're definitely right, this makes me think I didn't say it quite right, though to be more precise you can turn it back as far as I read by tracing that image
What I'm interested is when I save my svg as an eps what can I do in order to get that eps file looking same way as the svg file and of course the  raster file that was exported from the svg file.
Can you help me please ?

Thank you

When I was using Inkscape I don't remember there being a whole lot of problems saving the file as .eps.  Inkscape defaults to .svg but there is an option to save .eps.  I then imported that .eps into photoshop and rasterized it.

Regarding the opacity, are you talking about gradients?  The Inkscape gradients do not translate to jpegs for some reason so if you're planning on selling the files on microstock you need to avoid using gradients and transparencies. 

You can fake a gradient by drawing two boxes of different colors and then blending them using the interpolate tool.

I didn't say I have a problem saving the file as an eps vector. That's easy.
well , I'm just trying to find a way in Inkscape to make that eps file I'm saving look like the svg or the rasterized image I'm exporting from svg using Inkscape. Can you help me with this please ?
Thank you

Regarding what you mentioned above about opacity and gradients, I have noticed in Inkscape are two different things. I don't know what you working with right now, but is it the same thing in your software ?

Thank you all for trying

BTW forgot to mention it, yes I'm using gradients and opacity and transparencies in my vectors and the jpg and jpegs and png that come out look just perfect, the only thing that bother me is eps file. When I open it in Adobe it really looks..... let's say  depressing lol
