Problem Placing an Image

Nov 30, 2012 5:31 PM

How do i place an image onto an illustrator page? I have a TIF image that i edited in photoshop and I'm trying to place on a 8.2x10.5 illustrator page. When i do this the image looks all pixely and weird (example photo below)

How can i solve this? Both images are 300dpi.

I would appreciate it if someone could help me out.

    Are you scalintgg it up in Illustrator? If so that is not a good idea. Place it at 100% and leave if you need to enlarge i do so from the oringal file in Photoshop.


    Also keep in mind that the magnificaion if set to an odd percentage will sometimes make it look pixelated even tthough it is high res image. Increase the magnification to say 200 or 300 and you will see the images is quite fine it is just the preview that looks pixelated here is a 300 ppi image placed in AI looks pixelated but look below when magnified 400% pretty clear and sharp but not pixelated that is what is hapening to you you zoomed out at an odd magnification and it just appears pixelated in the preview.
