  • Un-embed in Illustrator

    Is there a way to un-embed an image in Illustrator like you can in InDesign?

    Do you have the image?
    Relink it with 'embed' unchecked.

      No it was only submitted to me already embedding in the EPS.

        I don't believe so... I struggle with this all the time with our designers. If you find a way, LET ME KNOW!!!!

          My workaround

          I copy the image from the artwork and pasted into a new doc. Then opened the document into PS and saved a TIFF. Relinked to TIFF in Illy. Seemed to work fine without shifting or resizing.

          If there is any danger of this please let me know.

            A danger other than not knowing the original resolution of the image?
            You could always make a PDF and extract the images in Acrobat and relink them.

              I just clicked on the image and viewed the doc. info to check pixel dimensions and resolution before I opened it in Photoshop.

              I like the PDF route better. I'll try that one instead.

                If you are talking about a portfolio you have in a case and take with you to interviews where you will be doing a presentation of the work, a written blurb is not needed.

                If you are talking...

                I guess I'm sort of confused. If Friday is a day of religious observance, aren't you going to run into a little bit of pushback on this?

                Are you targeting the traditional type of Christmas...

                Your ppi is dependent on your print method.
                Where are you going to get a 142cm (56") square image printed? And on what?
                What is your final output purpose? Fine art or a short term poster?...

                As far as stock is concerned, what works and what doesn't is entirely up to the project at hand.
                Do I like any of these better than the others? Sure. But what gets used isn't up to what I like....
