This is a newbie sort of question, so thank you for your patience. I barely use vector images. But I need to draw an entire graphic in vector so I have drawn it using the pen.
My question is if I save the path (.ai) file when I open it in Illustrator will it export accurately?
If you save your file from Photoshop as a .PSD, and open it in Illustrator with Convert Layers to Objects selected, the paths will be there, along with the Fill and Stroke.
Thanks a ton.
My client wants an ai file so what should I do? Export it as paths?
You could do that, but you would lose your strokes and fills. If you download the trial version of Illustrator, you could open your .PSD in it, and save it as a .AI file.
