Preparing the Photo

The next step is finding the right photo to use. The client wants something that will grab a reader's attention (what client doesn't?), and I think using a photograph might add some punch. So let's switch back to Bridge to try to find the right image. An easy way to access Bridge is by clicking on the Go To Bridge button from Illustrator's Control Palette.

Find the Right Image

In Bridge, navigate to the image collection you're using and rate the photos that you like for the project with five stars. As you go through the images, try to look for things that might pertain to sunshine, travel, or relaxation. After you've gone through the collection, choose to view only images with a rating of five stars (see Figure 12.16). I personally like the image of the beach with the trees and the blue sky (ks4730.tif). Double-click on the image to open it in Photoshop.
