Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Placing images into Illustrator, part of Illustrator CS6 Essential Training.
Although Illustrator is a vector editing program,…you still have the ability to work with pixel-based images inside of Illustrator…by placing them into your documents.…These could be photographs, or images that were created in Photoshop, or Fireworks,…or any other raster-based image editor.…In this movie, I'll walk you through placing a raster-based image into your…Illustrator file, and also how to work with it a little bit.…I'm going to go up to the File menu, and inside of the File menu,…you're going to be looking for a command called Place.…Now, you could also utilize the Adobe Bridge as well,…select your image, and then place it into Illustrator that way, but if you're…already in Illustrator, it makes more sense to utilize the File menu. I'll go…down, and I'll select the Place command.…
Once I click on the Place command, I need to then find the folder where the file…lies on my hard drive.…In this case, I'll go into the Chapter 12 Exercise Files folder, and there's an…images folder inside of there.…
