    If you read the original post, you'll find, "The function that allows avatars to be uploaded broke a few weeks ago for unknown reasons." There's a workaround posted in comment #6 you can try....

  • Why me!!

    Having exported a path from Photoshop to illustrator so I can have a nice clean vector - why is nothing showing in Illustrator???
    A woman tells her doctor, 'I've got a bad back.'
    The doctor says, 'It's old age.'
    The woman says, 'I want a second opinion.'
    The doctor says: 'Okay - you're ugly as well.'

    make sure the path is saved in photoshop
    and that you are exporting that path
    then open it in illy
    select all and give it a stroke

    still doesn't work? hmmm not sure
    The beginning is always today.

        Istead of exporting the path the easiest thing to do is cut and paste it. Cut the path from illustrator, go to photoshop create a new document and select paste, you will be given the option to save a a path. Go to WINDOW (top menu) then paths - this will give you the paths menu/panel and you should be able to see your path as a work path. I suggest you save it (arrow to right of panel) then apply a stroke to it as Spanky suggests.

          the path is there. just that it is transparent fill and stroke. select all (Cmd-A or Cntrl-A) and select a color for either the fill or stroke.

          caught me off guard the first time i ever did this.

          enjoy

          ps. if you exported path to illustrator from photoshop, this is exactly what happens and is fine.

            ssssshhhh ... its t'other way round TR...from pshop to illy

            yeah, you just save your path for this so no need to save the actual pshop file. when you've drawn your path in pshop, use the path pallete (same pallette as layers usually and in the top right hand corner of that pallette there's a menu) to make sure the path is saved.
            Then using the file menu, export the path to illy making sure you're exporting the path you just saved.
            then open in illy and apply the stroke/fill
            The beginning is always today.
