Hi there,

Can anyone suggest what is wrong?

I have created a really nice logo in illustrator and now want to bring it over to Photoshop or Imageready - i tried both..

The problem is when I open it OR place it non the layers are brought in from Illustrator so its basically a flat object.. I thought it was possible to presever layers when importing???

Also maybe its me but when I bring it into Photoshop the quality seems to have degraded

Anyone use these methods and can help?

Thanks

Ian

Ok first off if possible KEEP the logo in Illustrator. Illustrator is a vector program and your logo is vector art. GOOD! If you bring it into Photoshop it WILL be rasterized because photoshop is a raster program. If you rasterize at a relatively low dpi, you will lose quality compared to the vector version.

If you MUST import into Photoshop, from Illustrator go to File>Export, and select Photoshop PSD. Itll allow you to save the layers, and set the DPI for better quality.

Don't forget to turn the anti-aliasing off. Otherwise you'll get a soft border (blurred) at your colour edges. Set your resolution to 300 if you plan on litho printing the image at 100%.
