I am hoping someone can help me. I am trying to copy and paste or drag an object from Photoshop to Illustrator but I need it to have a transparent background.
For example, I selected a flower from a picture I took and erased the background so just the flower remained. I changed the background to transparent. It looks transparent in photoshop but when I copy the flower and paste it in illustrator there is a white box around the flower.
Or, I have some brushes I downloaded for photoshop and want to use the brush as an object and use it in illustrator. I have a transparent background in photoshop and the brush stroke is on a transparent layer but when I drag it into illustrator the white background appears again.
Thanks for your help in advance.
Save a transparent PSD file and plce that in Illustrator. You can embed it converting layers to objects - then you achieve the same as copying and pasting
