Rasterizing Objects in Illustrator

Bitmap fonts should not be used with Photoshop, and it's a good idea to delete them from your system. They are outdated and might cause problems for your system.


Illustrator gives you two ways to rasterize an object: through the Object menu and through the Effect menu. When you're rasterizing as an effect, the appearance of the object or text is changed, but it remains vector artwork. You can reverse the rasterization by selecting the object and deleting the effect from the Appearance palette. Knowing when and why to rasterize and understanding the basic settings you use to do so are key to preserving the appearance of artwork in Illustrator. You learn these details of rasterizing in the following subsections.
