    Your client needs to get you the dimensions of the door. Without that, one can only guess.
    In Illustrator use whatever units you want. I use inches. Too much math otherwise.

    B, we pay illustrators to create maps for projects and end up paying them a royalty based fee. The number of copies are limited by contract and they are free to license the map art for others. I don't...

    Your image is not showing up. What works best for me is to upload an image to a photo hosting site like photobucket. Then use the IMG tag/link and paste that directly...

  • 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
