    Make object have a transparent background when dragging to Illustrator

      Hello,

       

      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.
