Exporting PS Transparency to Illustrator

Discussion in 'Photoshop' started by Monty Jake Monty, Jan 22, 2004.

  1. I have a raster image masked in PS and I need to drop this into an AI file
    while maintaining the transparency. I tried making a clipping path in PS
    but it did not come along for the ride. Pasting this path into the AI doc
    was not overly successful either. It did paste but was overly complex.
    Should I make a clipping path in Illustrator after I import or is there a
    way to bring in the masked image more effortlessly?

    save your image as a .png file, this will preserve the transparency for when
    you place it in illustrator...hope that helps

    This does work. But does it maintain the high resolution?

    Thanks!
