    Can you knockout a vector shape from an embeded image?

    skipdidit Level 1

      I need instructions on how to knockout a shape from the middle of an embeded image that I have imported into Illustrator CS4. The goal is to have a photo with a transparent hole in the middle that I can save as a .DXF auto cad file.

       

      I know how to do this with vector shapes using the pathfinder tools, but for some reason it won't work with an embedded image.

       

      Should I do this in Photoshop?
