    Layered AI - Layered PSD (video tutorial)

    http://www.rosem.com/work/random/ai-psd.html

    Had a few people asking on another forum on how to get a layered ai files to a layered .psd file, so I made a quick tutorial.

    Thought I would post it here too, and see if it helps anyone out

    Later,
    Mike

    Vectorizing + separating the shapes into layers... Some pretty work to do unfortunately.
    Maybe with new CS2 and its smart objects it will be possible, but still not with standard raster artwork, even in layered PSD

    Macromedia Captivate

    Also, I don't think you can do that yet (layered .psd to layered .ai). You might be able to but it wouldn't be worth it, as you would have raster images in a vector program. I think with CS2 you could do a live trace though and it might be able to to convert it over for you. I'll have to check it out. Good idea.

    Question, you can make a fully vector logo using the pen tool in photoshop cant you? It's just i cant really get the grasp of illustrator at the minute, and photoshop seems to do things just fine, but when designing it for business cards, letter heads what should I keep in mind? is there a certain format in photoshop i must stick too? (like 300dpi)

    Any help is appreciated

    You can make a "fully vector" logo in Photoshop... But it's a bit awkward approach.
    Not always it will be 100% vector one - Photoshop has some effects that cannot be reproduced in Illustrator or Corel. This logo will be represented by pixels, not vectors (even though it's shape is defined by paths) and it isn't good for some purposes.
    If You have simple logo without Photoshop-exclusive effects, You can export AI paths and finish it in Illustrator (adding colors for example).

    Sometimes for print designs, it's good to ask client about the printing company requirements or their website. They may require vector format or 350 dpi resolution. Also You can usually download their templates, customized to their requirements - and work on them. This will give You 100% compatibility with what they want.

    300 dpi, bleed marigins, and (in vector formats) fonts converted to curves.
    Oh, and be sure to prepare Your files for CMYK not RGB...

    Yes, if you are doing a logo or anything for print that would need to be resized later - I would not do it in photoshop, unless you make it HUGE to start with.

    It's always safe to go with Illustrator if you need something vector.
