I have photoshop files that have UI elements but i dont know how to use it in illustrator as with normal copy and paste it doesnt work, i tried
to open the files in illustrator and although i choosed the option convert layers to objects but that doesnt work as all layers are converted to
a one whole image ?
What format are the Images Saved as from PS?
In AI, can you Place the Images?
If you save a layered image in Photoshop as a .psd file, you should be able to open the image in Illustrator and retain the layers. Try following the steps below:
First save your image in Photoshop in .psd format, and make sure you have the save layers option checked. Be sure that you haven't flattened your artwork, and that all of your layers are visible. If you have a layer in Photoshop that you have hidden, it will NOT import into Illustrator.
In Illustrator, go to File > Open... and select your .psd image. Make sure you select "Convert Layers to Objects".
You should now have your layers intact as they were in Photoshop.
If you're still having issues after going through this process again, please let us know.
