Adobe Photoshop Illustrator

Youcan bring artwork from Photoshop (PSD) files into Illustrator usingthe Open command, the Place command, the Paste command, and thedrag-and-drop feature.

Illustrator supports most Photoshop data, including layer comps,layers, editable text, and paths. This means that you can transferfiles between Photoshop and Illustrator without losing the abilityto edit the artwork. For easy transfer of files between the twoapplications, adjustment layers that have visibility turned off areimported (though inaccessible) into Illustrator and restored whenexported back to Photoshop.

What Is Adobe Illustrator? Adobe Illustrator is an advanced, vector-based editing software used to create logos, graphics, cartoons, and fonts. Unlike Photoshop, which uses a pixel-based format, Illustrator uses mathematical constructs to create vector graphics. What’s a vector in Illustrator? Adobe Illustrator The industry-standard vector graphics app to create logos, icons, drawings, typography and illustrations for print, web, video and mobile.

Spot colors (up to 31 spot channels per file) import as a singleN‑Channel raster image, which is placed over the process color image.The spot colors are added to the swatches panel as custom colorswith the same name as in Photoshop. Imported spot colors separatecorrectly.

Duotone PSD files import as flat raster images with a 256‑indexedcolorspace and an N‑Channel colorspace containing all of the duotoneinks. Because Illustrator uses an N‑Channel, blending mode interactionsset in Photoshop may appear differently in Illustrator. Ink colorsfrom old color libraries are set to gray.

In cases where Illustrator must convert the Photoshop data, awarning message appears. For example, when importing a 16‑bit Photoshopfile, Illustrator warns you that the image will be imported as an8‑bit, flat composite.

Convert Photoshop Layers To Objects And Make Text EditableWhere Possible

Preserves as much layer structure and text editability aspossible without sacrificing appearance. However, if the file includesfeatures that Illustrator doesn’t support, Illustrator preservesthe appearance of the artwork by merging and rasterizing layers.For example:

  • Layer sets that use the Dissolve blendingmode as well as all layers in clipping masks get merged into singlelayers.

  • Adjustment layers and layers that use a Knockout option aremerged with the underlying layers, as are layers that contain transparentpixels and use the Color Dodge, Color Burn, Difference, Linear Burn,Linear Dodge, Vivid Light, Linear Light, or Pin Light blending mode.

  • Layers that use layer effects may be merged; however, thespecific merging behavior depends on the blending mode of the layer,the presence of transparent pixels, and the layer’s blending options.

  • Hidden layers that require merging are discarded.

note: TheConvert Photoshop Layers To Objects And Make Text Editable Where Possibleoption is not available when you link to a Photoshop file.


Flatten Photoshop Layers To A Single Image And PreserveText Appearance

Importsthe file as a single bitmap image. The converted file retains no individualobjects, except for the document clipping path (if one exists).Opacity is retained as part of the main image, but is not editable.

Imports all layers from the Photoshop file, even those thatare hidden. This option is not available when linking to a Photoshopfile.
