Part 12. Just for Fun > Placing Artwork in an Image

Placing Artwork in an Image

Commands you may already have used for combining imagery are File, New From Clipboard; File, Import; and the pair Edit, Copy and Edit, Paste. Here's a handy alternative, a quicker way to insert artwork from an external file that's in one of the other Adobe formats (.ai, .eps, .pdf, or .pdp extensions).

With a background image in the active image area, choose File, Place.

Locate and double-click the file that contains the artwork (or click it and click Place).

If the file contains multiple pages, choose the page you want to insert.

Click OK. The artwork or page is inserted into a new layer in the active image.

TIP

Missing Fonts

If you see this warning window after step 3, choose Continue, and some other fonts that are available in your computer will be substituted.


Optionally, drag a handle to move or resize the artwork to fit your canvas.

Click the Commit button, or press Enter.
