Chapter 13. Understanding the Illustrato... > Understanding File Formats

Understanding File Formats

Illustrator enables you to import, export, and save files of nearly every graphic type. This section lists those formats and gives more explanation when necessary. Again, the Adobe Help Center is a great source of information for specific file formats and some of the options it offers.

Importing

Import files into Illustrator by selecting File, Place. If you have the Link option selected in the Place dialog, it creates a linked file—one that is not stored inside the document but is merely referenced in it. This creates smaller files. If you do not select Link, the file is embedded in the document, creating a larger document.
