Working with Bitmaps

In this section you'll learn more about using bitmapped graphics as individual elements. For instance, you can very easily use a bitmap as a fill color for another graphic.

Breaking Apart a Bitmap and Using It As a Fill Color

Here are the steps to follow to break apart a bitmap and use it as a fill color:

1.
With a bitmap graphic selected, choose Modify, Break Apart. Notice that the bitmap now looks more like a primitive object.

2.
Choose the Eyedropper tool in the Tools panel, and click on the graphic.

3.
Notice that the fill swatch has a small icon representing the bitmap.

4.
Choose the Rectangle tool and draw a square on the stage. Notice that it's filled with the bitmap!

5.
Now you have the option of transforming the fill using the Transform Fill tool.
