  • 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

                  This is kind of like posting pictures of 4 different houses, and asking the same question; how did they build these houses, and where can I learn?

                  The answer is much less superficial than...

                  ''The role of the designer'' varies with what type of working situation the designer is working under.
                  There is no role of the designer that can be defined generically, though I suppose, from my...

                  Do you mean the part after we tell you that you have to start with knowing how to draw and/or paint?
                  Because all of these are slightly different. At least 2 of them are hand ''painted'' in a realistic...
