illustrator to Photoshop export

Hello all,

When images are exported from Illustrator to Photoshop in psd format they tend to be much larger in size then orginal of illustrator. Is there any way to export them to photoshop and retain the exact size defined in illustrator.

Thanks in advance.

Tahir.

Reduce the artboard size when starting a new graphic, this way your image will be smaller.

Or just click on the graphic in Illustrator and CTRL + C then past it into Photshop. Made it a lot smaller than saving from Illustrator and then opening up in Photoshop.

Failing that, I always used to just scale it down when exporting it into Photoshop

Thanks for a quick reply /Mad,

Reduding the size does not always give me 100% accuracy between export. I have to keep playing around with the settigs to get it just right.

Copy paste does not give me accuarcy either.

I can open a defined new document in photoshop and copy paste into it and get what I want, basically.

What I need to know is that is there any way to export from ill to pho with 100% on size every time?

Thanks.

Tahir.

Try to save as EPS in Illustrator and then use the Place Method in PhotoSHop..

chindioc,

Using ESP technique produces the same result as copy past I had mentioned above. Does not retain 100% accuracy duplicated from illustrator.

There should be a way to export with accuracy.

Thanks.

What do you mean by "100% accuracy?"  Illustrator creates a vector image (shapes), and photoshop works with raster images (bitmapped representation of shapes).  The accuracy of a bitmap reproduction will only be as good as the DPI of the export.

When you export the image from Illustrator, you should be able to set the DPI to give you an image of whatever size you want it to be.

AntonioP,

What I meant by accuarcy is the size of image with the exact formation of the image I have created in illustrator. Suppose if I exprot 300x300 pt at 72 ppi to photoshop it shows up as 327x327 pt at 72 ppi or 72 pix.

Thanks.

Guys,
I have figured out my issue. The images I had created have a transparent border of about 13 pts. Which was increasing the size when placed in Photoshop. In general when exporting if the pps is set to 72 the image is always exported with 100% accuracy on size.

Dividing points.

Thanks.
