Hi
I have a problem with illustrator. I have some photos in 72 dpi, they are for print so in photoshop I make the resolution to 300 dpi, I then go to Illustrator where I have the document where the pictures are going to be placed,I open the pictures and now the pictures changes resolution to 72 dpi, and/or the do have a resolution of 300 dpi but the size is getting much smaller, what am i doing wrong ?

First, when you are resizing the image in Photoshop, is 'Resample Image' checked or not? It sounds like you are not actually resizing the image but just changing the resolution, which is another way of saying that you really aren't doing anything at all as far as illustrator is concerned. If 'Resample Image' is NOT checked, than this is what is happening.
Second, keep in mind that you are going from 72 dpi to 300 dpi, but your image is still going to be 72 dpi quality. It won't look any better and might actually degrade, depending upon the image and what resampling mode you choose.
So, I would make sure you have 'Resample Image' checked, experiement with the different options (I usually use 'Bicubic' but others have other preferences and so might you), and change the resolution to 300 dpi knowing that all you are doing is what we used to fondly call 'polishing a turd'. You are making your image the correct resolution, but since it was already at 72 dpi, you cannot bring back any of the information and detail that was already lost.

Hi thanks for the answer, the resampling image was checked, but I now tried with the original picture, and now I succeded in making the resolution to 300 dpi. So I guess you are right about going from 72 to 300, that does not work :-)
