Chapter 1. Getting Started with Photoshop CS2 > Inserting Images in a Document

Inserting Images in a Document

You can use Photoshop's Place command to insert artwork into an open document. To increase your control of the new image information, Photoshop places the new image into a separate layer. Photoshop lets you place files in PDF, Adobe Illustrator, and EPS formats. When you first place a vector-based image into Photoshop, you have the ability to modify the width, height, and rotation as a pure vector image. However, since Photoshop is primarily a raster program, when you finalize your changes, Photoshop rasterizes the file information (converts the vector into pixels), and saves it as a Smart Object (). Which means you cannot edit the placed documents as you would a vector shape or path.
