Is there anyway how can I set in Illustrator default filling color? Problem is:
I try to copy and paste paths from Photoshop to Illustrator. I have photoshop document with whole alphabet letters in vectors (usin pen tool), filled with black color. But when I try to copy from photoshop and paste it in Llustrator- it only pastes paths and I have to need filled it manualy. And I have whole alphabet including letters with diacritic small and big letters- thats means a lot of works- even fill it in illustrator.
Is there anyway how can I default set filling color, for example black one? or any way how to paste it to ILLUSTRATOR already filled from photoshop?
Thank you very much for any advice.
Why use Photoshop at all if you need paths in Illustrator? Can't you simply place any raster image you need in Illustrator and create your paths? That way they'll continue to fill as you want them to.
You're going about this wrong.
First Scott is right on this should have been done in Illustrator in the first place.
But since you have it created in Photoshop you want to create a blank ai file and then place the photoshop file into that document.
You have to choose the option to convert layers to ai objects when doing so.
Then you will come in witht the path a fill color you gave it in Photoshop and you will be able to stroke and change colors as well if you desire. Yopu will be able to clean it up also.
What Wade said is: in Illustrator choose File > New and in the New Document dialog choose the same dimensions as the Photoshop document. Then in the new document choose File > Place where you can select your Photoshop document and this will give you the option in question. This will place in Illustrator all shape layers of the Photoshop document as paths with their fill colors.
emil emil that will be another lesson. The user will come upon this hemselves somewhere down the road but for know they have a way.
It is just one of those things that might be to simple and direct at the moment for this user once speed becomes an issue they will see it.
Just part of the learning process.
