    trimming scanned artwork in illustrator cs4

    spot333

      Hi All,

       

      I often bring a scan into Illustrator cs4, and then want to trim it so I can work with only a part of it. I can't seem to figure out how to do it. I understand that you can mask it, but doesn't that bog down the file?  I have tried using scissors, but it says that I need to select a path. The scanned object is selected, which appears to be a path of sorts, so I must be missing something. Can anyone help?

       

      Thanks so much.
