Lesson 6. Using Smart Objects > Resizing a Smart Illustrator object

Resizing a Smart Illustrator object

Now you'll resize the image that you just placed.

1.
Resize the placed Illustrator file to the same size (232 by 140 pixels) as the Vegetables image in the bottom center cell using the Smart Illustrator Image Inspector.

2.
In the Smart Illustrator Image Inspector, enter Life on the Farm in the Alt Text box.

3.
Choose File > Save to save your work.

4.
Double-click the Smart Illustrator object on your page. Illustrator starts, and the original lifeonfarm.ai source file appears. If the Convert Color Mode dialog box appears, click OK to accept the default values. Make some changes to the file (for example, change the color of the white rectangle to yellow as we did), and then save the file and Exit or Quit Illustrator.

Note

If the Smart Object's application does not open, choose Edit > Preferences (Windows) or GoLive > Preferences (Mac OS), expand General icon in the left pane, select User Interface, and make sure that the Launch Other Applications to Edit Media Files option is checked.

5.
Return to GoLive. When you do, GoLive automatically updates the Smart Illustrator object on your page to reflect the changes you just made to the source file in Illustrator.
