Chapter 13. WORKING WITH PIXELS > Switching to the Bitmap Mode

Switching to the Bitmap Mode

If you want to work with photographs, scans, or other pixel images, you must switch to the bitmap mode.

To use the bitmap mode features:

  • Choose File > Open and choose a scanned or pixel-based image. The image automatically opens in the bitmap mode, unless you have changed the bitmap preferences (see page 219).

    Tip

    The thick striped line around the image indicates that the bitmap mode tools are available 1.

    Figure 1. The striped line indicates the artwork can be edited using the bitmap mode tools.


    or

    Double-click a bitmap image with either the Pointer or Subselection tools.
