  • 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.

                Sorry, but I completely agree with your teacher.

                From a technical standpoint, your work is excellent. It seems you're well on you way to mastering the tools you're using, which is very good....

                It sounds like you've been given feedback for two things: lack of efficiency and making mistakes. So, you'll need to work on correcting those.
