Chapter 13. Combining Illustrator CS2 Gr... > Placing an Adobe Photoshop file

Placing an Adobe Photoshop file

You’ll begin by placing a Photoshop file that contains two layer comps in the Illustrator document as an embedded file. Placed files can be embedded or linked. Embedded files are added to the Illustrator file, and the Illustrator file size increases to reflect the addition of the placed file. Linked files remain separate, external files, with a link to the placed file in the Illustrator file. (The linked file must always accompany the Illustrator file, or the link will break and the placed file will not appear in the Illustrator artwork.)

About layer comps

Designers often create multiple compositions, or comps, of a page layout to show clients. Using layer comps, you can create, manage, and view multiple versions of a layout in a single Photoshop or ImageReady file. Layer comps are fully interchangeable between Photoshop and ImageReady if the image color mode is RGB.
