How do I place a large format image into Illustrator

I am trying to place a large format image that I created in Photoshop into Illustrator. I have tried PSD, TIFF, and JPG. I have even cropped down the image into smaller portions to try to make it easier to work with. Every time I try to Place the image I get a dialogue box saying,"The file 'Water 1.jpg' is in an unknown format and cannot be opened.' Can anyone help with this?

I would guess the file is simply too big.  Make sure the document is in RGB mode.  If I were you, I would never submit a file that size at 300ppi for large format.  Large or grand format printers only need around 100 to 144ppi at 100% final size.  Also, set the Illustrator file up at 25% scale and place the image at 25% @ 300ppi ( image resolution ends up around 75ppi which is still plenty when enlarged 400% to final size ).  Getting back to the original error message, it could be the system is running out of both RAM and scratch disk space and cannot deal with the preview required.  Better to scale the file down for large format.

  • When i Place a PSD in Indesign it comes in at 200+% while the image frame is considerably smaller. How do i place so that the image and image frame match?

    When i Place a PSD in Indesign it comes in at 200+% while the image frame is considerably smaller. How do i place so that the image and image frame match?

    The screenshots tell you everything.
    The second one tells you how the image frame is automatically set up after a one-click place. It's the blue stroked rectangle with the eight control points at each corner and mid-way along the line. This image frame is generated at a proportionally correct height and width for the image it contains.
    Now, if you look at the third screenshot (click on it to see it at a larger size), you will see I've used the direct selection tool (white arrow) to click on the image within the image frame. This CLEARLY shows the image (within the image frame) is substantially larger than the frame generated to contain it. This is indicated by the yellow stroked rectangle with the eight control points at each corner and mid-way along the line.
    Notice that the blue and yellow rectangles are vastly different sizes.
    In InDesign CS5.5, when i clicked to place the image, the image would fit perfectly within its image frame. the blue and yellow rectangles would match.
    I had no need to go click on the proportional fill and centre buttons like i need to do now in CC.
    I have a keyboard shortcut to place. I can't do File > Place for the amount of images i need to place.
    So to reiterate: How do i place an image so that the image and image frame match?

    How to insert a pdf or jpeg image into a blob column of a table

    Try This
    Loading an image into a BLOB column and displaying it via OAS
    The steps are as follows:
    Step 1.
    Create a table to store the blobs:
    create table blobs
    ( id varchar2(255),
    blob_col blob
    Step 2.
    Create a logical directory in the database to the physical file system:
    create or replace directory MY_FILES as 'c:\images';
    Step 3.
    Create a procedure to load the blobs from the file system using the logical
    directory. The gif "aria.gif" must exist in c:\images.
    create or replace procedure insert_img as
    f_lob bfile;
    b_lob blob;
    insert into blobs values ( 'MyGif', empty_blob() )
    return blob_col into b_lob;
    f_lob := bfilename( 'MY_FILES', 'aria.gif' );
    dbms_lob.fileopen(f_lob, dbms_lob.file_readonly);
    dbms_lob.loadfromfile( b_lob, f_lob, dbms_lob.getlength(f_lob) );
    Step 4.
    Create a procedure that is called via Oracle Application Server to display the
    create or replace procedure get_img as
    vblob blob;
    buffer raw(32000);
    buffer_size integer := 32000;
    offset integer := 1;
    length number;
    select blob_col into vblob from blobs where id = 'MyGif';
    length := dbms_lob.getlength(vblob);
    while offset < length loop, buffer_size, offset, buffer);
    offset := offset + buffer_size;
    end loop;
    when others then
    Step 5.
    Use the PL/SQL cartridge to call the get_img procedure
    Create that procedure as a function and invoke it within your PL/SQL code to
    place the images appropriately on your HTML page via the PL/SQL toolkit.
    from a html form
    1. Create an HTML form where the image field will be <input type="file">. You also
    need the file MIME type .
    2. Create a procedure receiving the form parameters. The file field will be a Varchar2
    parameter, because you receive the image path not the image itself.
    3. Insert the image file into table using "Create directory NAME as IMAGE_PATH" and
    then use "Insert into TABLE (consecutive, BLOB_OBJECT, MIME_OBJECT) values (sequence.nextval,
    EMPTY_BLOB(), 'GIF' or 'JPEG') returning BLOB_OBJECT, consecutive into variable_blob,
    4. Load the file into table using:
    dbms_lob.loadfromfile(variable_blob, variable_file_name, dbms_lob.getlength(variable_file_name));

  • I just really need to know... After desigining my UX, how do I go about adding the image into ADOBE FLASH BUILDER to script on top of it?

    I just really need to know... After desigining my UX, how do I go about adding the image into ADOBE FLASH BUILDER to script on top of it?
    Any and all advice is welcome.

    Do you have different versions of the graphic novel pages, or is there just one version of the page? If there is one version, can you crop into the page without losing anything important?
    I would guess that there is one version, and that cropping into the page will lose something important. If that's the case, here's how I would handle it:
    Make a stage that is 14:9. The size doesn't matter, but 1400x900 could be a good starting point.
    Put down a background texture that fits well with the look of the other images. Make that fill the 1400x900 stage.
    Place your page graphics so that they are within the center 1200x788 area of the stage.
    Set the stage scalemode to "noBorder".
    You now have a layout that will work on all devices, as narrow as iPad, and as wide as iPhone 5. All without any code. On the widest devices you'll see a bit of your background pattern to the left and right of the page graphic. On the narrowest devices you'll see a bit of background pattern above and below the page graphic. But you won't lose sight of anything important.

  • I just upgraded to LR4, how do I get all my LR2 images into LR4?

    I just upgraded to LR4, how do I get all my LR2 images into LR4?

    Images are not "in" Lightroom. Image files are on the hard drive, and the Lightroom edits are in the catalog.
    Lr creates a link between the catalog and the image files on the hard drive.
    So, there is no need to bring images from one version of Lr to the other.
    When you install Lr4 it will find your existing catalog and update it (in fact it updates a copy of the catalog); Lr4 will then "know" where your images are because their location is recorded in the catalog.
    It is the unfortunate choice of the word "import" that creates the impression that images are in Lr like eggs in a basket. Nope!

  • Premier After Effects... How does one places the whole movie clip into AF?

    After years of using Premiere, I’m looking at using After Effects. Premiere does most of what I need (I don’t need moving graphics and titles) but the masking and rotoscoping seems to be better in After Effects. I’ve started a great video by Tom Green at school. This is probably silly question- I don’t understand is how does one places the whole movie clip into AF? I only see 30 seconds or so of the 5 minute clip on the timeline in AF.

    Ahh, thanks. I simply add more minutes (the length of the clip) into the "new composition".
    A new problem: When I try a dynamic link with premiere AE says “Failed to connect to adobe Premiere Pro Dynamic Link”, but PP will link with AE. I just installed AF last week. Do I need to uninstall and reinstall them (along with the rest of the Creative Suite)?

  • Yosemite place psd or tif images in Illustrator CS4.

    I have just upgraded to Yosemite and cannot place psd or tif images to Illustrator CS4. I need a high resolution image with a transparent background for print. Surely there is a fix for this.

    In Illustrator CS2, the individual Spot Channels from Photoshop used to become Opacity masks when imported.
    In Illustrator CS4, they are not converted to Opacity masks. Your spot colors are still there - look in the Swatches panel. There is a Spot channels image in the layers panel with 100% Multiply blend mode applied to it.
    So it is not correct to say that it is no longer possible to bring spot channels from Photoshop into the Illustrator CS4. See the comparison snapshots below.
    Hope this helps.

  • __Can I merge one large Bitmap image into another?

    __Can I merge one large Bitmap image into another?
    I have 2 very large hi-res Bitmaps that I want to merge together into 1 file without converting to grayscale or anything. The problem is the second Bitmap is like a 'patch' and I want to insert it into the other like a puzzle piece, while maintaining corect registration (the bitmaps combine to a 4 colour seperation).
    Thanks in advance!

    1bit Bitmap offers no layer capabilities so going through grayscale seems advisable. (Edit: Naturally one should at the end of the combination process convert to bitmap again.)
    Other than that you could after pasting remove parts of the pasted content with the selection tools (setting them to subtract with alt).

  • How do i convert my scanned jpg images into word

    How do i convert my scanned jpg images into word

    No, Acrobat Pro is expensive
    95% of all the professional scanned in books are in PDF, the entire structure and countless years of work have gone into Acrobat being not just the "best" standard for scanned books, but really the ONLY standard for them.
    Yes, many many little programs can convert to PDF after you have them in a file, or even from Safari you can "print as PDF" or "save as PDF"
    however it just saves them as PDF, and you can use Acrobat READER for free,....
    but Reader is just that, a reader, you cannot do pro editing, scale down the file size etc etc, signatures, portfolios etc.
    Ive got a 42 Terabyte collection of PDF books,.....Ive spent too much time staring at PDF books   LoL.

  • Trouble printing LARGE format images from Photoshop CC to Acrobat XI

    Hi All, I had no issues printing a 1mtrx1mtr @ 300dpi image to Acrobat, now that I am trying a 2mtrx1mtr @ 300dpi it is not doing anything.
    I get the initial Acrobat printer popup, tell it to print, photoshop CC says I may be printing something outside the print area (It's ok, it is the exact same size, I setup everything in the Acrobat settings), I click ok, then nothing, no matter how long I wait.
    When I did the smaller one, a dialogue window appeard with a status of the print window, showing me how long it had to go.
    I am on a deadline and support cannot help til Monday US time.
    Any suggestions, I only have 8gb of ram, and that cannot be increased in this laptop.

    When working at large format, the lpi (screen) and required resolution are normally reduced substantially, based on projected viewing angle [correction: distance], unless creating specialist immersive artwork (which is likely to push technological boundaries.) I recommend you work with your printer to find out the expected lpi and hence dpi.

  • Large Still Images into PE - One Workflow

    Everyone wants the highest quality that they can obtain when doing their videos. It’s natural to want the best. Well, when dealing with still images, bigger is not necessarily better, for two reasons. First, overly large still images can really tax a system and second, one is limited to the frame size of the video, so these have to be resized somewhere - this resizing can be in the NLE (Non Linear Editor) program, or in an image processing program like PS (Photoshop), which does a better job anyway. Doing this in PS, or PSE, will result in better resized images, and they are easier for the NLE to work with. Quality is as high as your Project’s Preset will allow, and you are more efficient, with fewer crashes, slowdowns and hangs. It is a win-win situation.
    Here is my normal workflow when dealing with still images. This workflow is for NTSC 4:3 720x480 with a PAR (Pixel Aspect Ratio) of 0.9. If your Project’s Presets are different, use those specs to resize to.
    Since I shoot my still images in RAW, I Copy my files from the CF card to my system and catalog these images by location, subject and date (if necessary). I’ll do a quick conversion and Save_As Adobe DNG for backup. I then process these RAW images in PS with the ARC (Adobe Raw Converter), correcting them and then doing a Save_As PSD into a sub-folder. All of this is in my still photo library.
    Normally, I will edit these PSD’s to find the images that I wish to use in a Video Project, and will Copy the selected images to another folder. You’ll see that I work with a lot of Copies, so my original files are always untouched and stored elsewhere. This guards against anything happening to them.
    At this point, I’ll decide how I wish to use these selected images in my Video Project. Let’s just say that they are all horizontal images, and are still full-size from my camera. As stated, my Video Projects are DV-NTSC 4:3 720x480 PAR 0.9. [Remember, your Video Project may vary, so you will need to plug in the dimensions for YOUR Video Project in that case.] I also will have done my Cropping on each image individually, to get them to 4:3 Aspect Ratio. I do this my eye and by hand, rather than via an Action, because I want full aesthetic control.
    In PS, I have a set of Actions for Video. An Action is like a Script, but less powerful and less involved in the writing. As I have already done all of my image enhancements and additional processing before I did my Copy to the selected folder, I only have to worry about my Action resizing these selected images for use in my Video Project. My Action here is to resize to 720x480 with a PAR of 0.9, and I normally use the Action that does this with a particular resizing algorithm, Bicubic-Smoother (though I also use Bicubic-Sharper on occasion).
    For the next step, I go to my folder structure (remember, this folder contains copies of my selected still images in PSD format), and create a new sub-folder "[Project Name]_720x480." Back in PS, I choose File>Automate>Batch. Here I set my Source Folder, my Destination folder and the Action to perform. In my case, it’ll be the Destination Folder, that I just created, [Project Name]_720x480, and my Action will be my NTSC 4:3 720x480 Smooth. I check to have the Open command by-passed, because I do not need to see this take place on my monitor. When I hit OK, PS grabs all files in my Source Folder, runs the commands of my Action and does a Save_As for all files into my Destination Folder. I can process hundreds of large images down to a great 720x480 PAR 0.9 via Bicubic-Smoother interpolation, in moments. Now, I’m ready to go. Last, I Copy my Destination Folder to my Video Project’s folder hierarchy (usually on another HDD), and then Import these processed stills into my NLE.
    What if I need to pan on one, or more of these images, while they are zoomed out completely? I don’t have enough pixels in my horizontal dimension to do this. I am just filling the frame with my still. Well, if I find that there are such images, I go back to my folder with the full sized images in my still images library, and select the ones that need to be larger. I run another Action on these, but it’s one that resizes to something larger than 720x480, say 1000x750. Now, I have another Destination Folder with the name [File Name]_1000x750. I’ll Copy this over to my Video Project, and Import these into the NLE. Here, I can go to Project Panel and remove the 720x480 versions if I so choose, but since a Premiere Project file (.PRPROJ or .PREL) is only an XML database, I may just leave them. It does not contain any media files, just links to where they are on the system and to what operations are performed on them.
    By doing my resizing in PS, rather than in Premiere, I have accomplished two things:
    1.) I have better quality resized images, using the algorithms in PS, plus have a choice of several interpolation methods to work with.
    2.) I have lessened the processing load on my NLE and on my system, while doing the editing
    I get higher quality and lower resource overhead - hence my reference to "win-win."
    Now, back to my aesthetic control. I do not do any automatic zooming or panning. If one allows the NLE to do this, then they will want to probably process all of their images to 1000x750 (remember, this is for an NTSC 4:3 Project, so you will need to calculate what YOUR Project will require).
    The two programs that I use are Photoshop and Premiere Pro, but Photoshop Elements can do the same things, though the exact commands might be different. Premiere Elements will handle the resized still images, just like Premiere Pro and the only difference will be the terminology used when one wishes to Import the still images.
    I also keep all of my images in .PSD (the native format of PS), and do not convert to JPEG, or other. If one’s camera shoots only JPEG, I suggest writing the Action to do the Save_As to .PSD, as another JPEG compression will cost one quality. Yes, the JPEG’s will be smaller, but remember we are looking for the ultimate quality, so larger file sizes are just part of that equation.
    One does not have to deal with all of the Copies, as I do. However, this allows me to go back to the originals, or to the processed full-sized .PSD’s at any step along the way. There is only one thing worse than not being able to go back to an intermediate version with full Layers and Adjustment Layers, plus any Alpha Channels, and that is finding out that you’ve lost your original RAW and DNG backups! That’s why I do a lot of Save_As and also work from Copies all along the way.

    Your workflow looks good. I do similar, but use PS, in lieu of LightRoom. I also do DNG's for my archives.
    Provided that one chooses a JPEG compression algorithm setting that does not do too much compression, I doubt that anyone, but the most very critical, could tell the difference in Video. Most of my tests on PSD vs JPEG have been for print. There, one can more easily detect the differences. Video "hides" some of that.
    To date, I have not had a Project where the Asset size differences between equally sized PSD's vs JPEG's caused any slowdown, or problem. There could be a resources savings with the smaller JPEG files, but there is a tiny bit of overhead dealing with the JPEG compression. I have never tested this, so can only guess that the smaller Asset size of the JPEG would trump that overhead - just a guess on my part.
    For me, keeping the images in PSD does save a tiny bit of work in my Action (basically one less operation to perform), but I doubt that one could measure that time difference, even over the automation of hundreds of images. Besides, it's only one additional line in the Action. My feelings on JPEG vs PSD is firmly based in my print experience, and I am probably being too critical with images going to video. When I move up to HD and BD authoring, I need to apply a very critical eye, to see if I can tell the differences on an HD TV. So long as one does not apply too much JPEG compression, the differences should be very slight, at the worst, and maybe not even noticed, at best.
    I do minimize the impact of many files on my Project by sizing to what I need. If I will not be doing any pans on zoomed-out images, I size to my Project. For pans on zoomed-out images, I calculate just what I will need for those pans, and might end up with several groups of sizes, to accommodate each. Still, the vast majority will be sized to exactly what I need for the Project - very few extra pixels.
    In my case, and yours too, I have my RAW, my DNG, my working Layered PSD's, and then my sized output. I always keep all working PSD's, as I might change my mind, or my client might change theirs, and I do not want to have to go back and redo work, if I still have those working files. I also do as little destructive editing, as I can, using Dupe Layers, and Adjustment Layers, whenever possible. If I can, I never Flatten, or Merge Layers, so I can make any/all changes at any time, and only have to do the resizing via the same Actions. That is basically a "one-button" solution, once I have made the changes required.
    Good luck,

  • A pdf file failed to convert to word, presumably because of size.  how do i split a large pdf file into manageable secrtions?

    I'm running Abode Reader XI version 11.0.7.  Repeated attempts to convert a large (439 page) file, a dissertation, failed.  How do I split a large pdf file like this into manageable sections for conversion?

    Hi Mike,
    Your 11MB file is well within the file-size limits for ExportPDF, but depending on the number of pages, complexity of the file (and yours doesn't sound complex), and your connection speed, it is possible that the service is simply timing out before it can finish processing. These steps can help:
    If the file already contains editable text (that is, it isn't a scanned document), try disabling OCR as outlined in this this document: How to disable Optical Character Recognition (OCR) when converting PDF to Word or Excel.
    Clear the browser cache and try again.
    Try a different browser.
    Let's start there. If you still can't export the file to Word, let me know and we'll take it from there.

    Hello –
    When you push the print screen button in your keyboard, the image is send (temporarily stored) to the clipboard.
    You could call the Windows API to recover that image and send it to an indicator in the front panel. This Example Program can show you how to make Windows API calls; I think you might find it useful to get started in programming your application.
    Hope this helps.
