Once you've cleaned up your image in Photoshop, learn how to transfer it to Illustrator by using the Place command.
- [Instructor] Once we have our artwork…all cleaned up inside of Photoshop,…it's time to place it into Illustrator…so we can convert it into a tracing object.…Now, really and truly, we already know how to do this,…but we're going to show you how to do it again…because this is very important.…First and foremost, you have to decide exactly how big…or how small you want the object to be…and what type of object it's actually going to be…when it's finished.…So, from here, what I'm going to do…is create a new document,…and when I create a new document,…I need to decide what type of document this is going to be.…In this case, it's going to be for a print document,…and we're going to make it tabloid size,…which is usually a poster size, 11 by 17,…and I'll change the points over here to inches…because that's what I'm used to working in,…and I'll leave it in the portrait orientation.…
The rest of this I'm just going to leave alone,…and I'll hit Create.…Once I hit Create, I'll press Command or Control zero…so I can see the entire composition…
