9. Preparing Images for Use on Packaging... > 9.1. The Image You Have Versus the I...

The Image You Have Versus the Image You Need

Typically an image will come in a couple of different varieties for a packaging job. The image may be supplied as an Illustrator file that you have to bring into Photoshop and rasterize or a new scan or digital image that you can call up in Photoshop to make changes. If the image has been created in a program like Illustrator, it could be completely made up of or created from hand-drawn elements, shapes, vignettes, and so forth, and may or may not include a “real” four-color image imbedded in it. If the file includes an embedded image, it is usually in the client’s files and can then be adjusted in Photoshop and reembedded in the client’s Illustrator file and updated.

On occasion, a client supplies a final Illustrator file only, with no image. If this is the case and that file is all the client can provide, you’ll have to open the file in Photoshop and rasterize it.
