Chapter 36. Linking and Embedding Images... > Embedding Raster and Vector Images

Embedding Raster and Vector Images

When the Link option is not selected in the Place dialog box, the selected image is embedded in the Illustrator document. Embedded images become part of the illustration, much like any other element on the artboard. Embedded images, because they become part of the Illustrator document, increase the file size.

Both raster and vector files can be embedded. Photoshop files offer the option of flattening or creating individual objects from the files' layers when embedded.
