I regularly export maps at 600dpi, so what you can achieve will depend on a combination of your hardware, the complexity of your data and the settings in QGIS. To be honest, your map does not look very complex, so I am surprised you are having problems, unless you have a computer with only an on-board graphics chipset (ie.e no separate graphics card) and ...

Another nice work around I regularly use to insert my company's logo with a transparent background is to add an additional dataframe in layout view. Then bring the transparent background tif or png in as a layer, zoom to layer, go to the symbology tab in layer properties change Stretch to none and Display background value (R,G,B, / 0,0,0) as hollow. Ensure ...

ArcMap won't do that for a single layer - transparency is handled for the entire symbology as a unit, not in pieces. So, the solution is to just have two copies of the layer in your table of contents. One with the outline and no fill, the other with no outline and a colored fill with whatever transparency you are looking for. Just make sure the layer with ...

Use vector EMF. Works fine but EMF is the only vector format supported by ArcGIS Desktop (I am not even mentioning Pro as it is not a fully fleshed out and production ready GIS). You can create and then convert vector graphics in most graphic design software. For example, open a vector graphic in Adobe Illustrator and export as EMF. I won't discuss tracing ...

Any white space will become transparent so make sure you use the paint bucket tool in photoshop to color any white space you want to show as white as a slightly off-white color that won't be noticeable. Save the Image as a BMP. Insert the image as a marker. ...

If those lines are vector lines (and not graphic lines as well) and you want to places those pictures onto them you can just add a point layer and put points where you need the symbol. Then you use your picture as a picture-marker-symbol where you can set the background or transparent-color to no-color. If you need special rotations you can put the angle ...

This is a known issue with ESRI. Their Page suggests these following workarounds (quoted from ESRI): Use one of the following two solutions to solve this issue. It is highly recommended to download and use ArcGIS Pro to perform all printing and exporting functions. ArcGIS Pro is not limited by the graphical device interface (GDI) ...

With ArcMap, there is no way I know of to bump up the resolution. For "transparency" of background, you could make the background a bright color, and then in Photoshop, replace the color with transparency and export to PNG. That could be a lot of work depending on how many photos you have. There might be a way to automate that process in Photoshop, depending ...
