  • 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.

                I'm thinking that may be what he was meaning. For posters I really focus on heirarchy. Grids... not so much. Unless it was maybe a series of posters and I wanted them to look similar.

                Most grids are for a continuous pleasant group of graphics so as to "belong" together. Most used in magazines and newspapers you can establish a grid for any project. Then subsequent related...

                As is the case with regard to many types of design decision, right or wrong is really not applicable, but that's not to say one decision won't lead to a better result than another.

                One way you can work around it (and I always recommend work-arounds as a last step) is to place the PDF into Illustrator. Then go Object>Flatten Transparency and click "Convert All Text To Ou...
