I have a large jpeg (1000 pixels across).
When I open it up in illustrator, it's only about 250px across, and it is being displayed at 100%. Plus, it is pixely. It looks like junk.
When I open the same jpeg in photoshop, it is the size it's supposed to be.
Anyone have any idea why I'm having this problem?
If your JPEG is 240 px when opened, Illy is showing you the image at 300 PPI.
If you scale it by entering 1000px in the W field of the Transform palette and Ctrl/Cmd+Enter, your image should inflate to reach the 1000 px.
Thank you, Jacob. That did the trick.
You are welcome, Cory.
