I've drawn some images in Illustrator CS4, on which I want to put an overlayed raster texture on. But how do I do that?
Attempt 1:: If I just overlay it, I somehow need to clip the texture to match the outline of the image.
Attempt 2:: I've tried a opacity mask, but it makes my image semi-transparent.
Use the path as a clipping mask. Check the help files for instructions. Come back if you need further help.
