How do you find the pixel dimensions of a photo to embed in Illustrator CC?

We recently upgraded our software from CS3 to CC. I'm having trouble determining the pixel dimensions of the photo I want to embed in Illustrator. In our old work flow, we simply clicked on the object in Illustrator, and then opened a new document in Photoshop, and it would retain the dimensions at our document size in Illustrator. It was then a simple matter to paste the photo into the box, position and crop and save as a PSD file and then place in Illustrator. That does not work any more in Creative Cloud. The object downsizes to 72 DPI while retaining the resolution setting. We need to keep our Illustrator files to the minimum, so embedding larger than needed files is not possible.
I've researched a bit and I see others with similar problems, but I haven't seen a workaround or a way to determine the pixel size. Document info in Illustrator gives the 72 dpi pixel settings, even though the document is set to reproduce at 200 dpi.
This is something that used to be so simple I didn't think much of upgrading. Now my workflow is horrendously long. I have to rasterize the entire graphic and then crop what is the inset photo. If there is a simpler way, please tell me. All the literature is backwards, about placing an already sized PS image into Illustrator. I need the other way 'round.
Thanks in advance for any help.

I think I have a workaround: Make sure the clipboard settings are on 72 by cutting and pasting a 72 dpi file in PS, as it seems Illustrator images are seen that way, no matter what the output resolution is. Click on Photoshop and start a new document. It will retain the proportions of the Illustrator image in 72 dpi. Then open image size and make sure the resample box is checked. Change the resolution to the desired, in my case 200.. Then place and crop your photo, and save the PSD file. Open Illustrator and place the PSD file. This works for me.

  • How do I find the pixel size of a photo?

    I have taken a photo or found one online.
    It's now on my ipad.
    How do I tell the pixel resoution of the photo via the ipad?
    I have two of the same photos on my device at the moment and want to delete one.  They may both be 2048/2048, but without emailing them or putting them in Dropbox, and viewing on my laptop, I don't see how to tell.

    Get the Actual Pixels App from the App Store. It's free and will tell you the pixel size of any photo you open.

    Hello James!
    I do not have any ABAP Instance, only the JAVA one.
    Therefore the ABAP transactions are quite useless.
    The problem tables are created by people working on the CAF layer.
    They have developed and deployed some homemade applications and this is leftovers from their development in some kind of way.
    Anyone with any ideas?
    Could it be that (yet) some special Portal Dictionary Role needs to be asigned to the Administrator?

  • How do you find the difference in no. of days between 2 dates?

    How do you find the difference in no. of days between 2 dates ?

    There are 2 way to solve this: using java.util.GregorianCalendar or java.util.Date (like jesper1 suggested), depending what kind of solution You need:
            GregorianCalendar gc1 = new GregorianCalendar(2001, 01, 01, 23, 00, 00);
            GregorianCalendar gc2 = new GregorianCalendar(2001, 01, 03, 10, 00, 00);
            // 1st way using GregorianCalendar
            int diff1 = gc1.get(GregorianCalendar.DATE) - gc2.get(GregorianCalendar.DATE);
            System.out.println("Differnce: " + diff1);
            // 2nd way using Date
            int diff2 = (int)(gc1.getTime().getTime() - gc2.getTime().getTime()) / (24 * 60 * 60 * 1000);
            System.out.println("Differnce: " + diff2);Note: There are 2 days between the given dates, but exactly 1 day and 11 hours.
    The first solution returns "-2", the second returns "-1".

    How do you resize the pixel count from 4000 to 1600 in iphoto?

    In the Export Dialogue (File -> Export) note the options at Size. This will allow you to specify a maximum length or breadth for the shot.

  • How would you find the pitch period of a sound signal?

    Hi
    I have a few questions and i would like if somebody could help me even with the smallest comment on this.
    How would someone be successfully estimate the pitch period (fundamental frequency) of a 5 second sound file?How would you successfully distinguish the voiced from the unvoiced parts and how would you make sure you dont mix voiced/unvoiced sections? Finally how can you find the exact points where the pitch is at its peak throughout the signal?
    Any help/comment/suggesion would be much appreciated

    Hello Madgreek,
    After some thought I think I may have come up with an algorithm for what we have discussed. Basically, you are interested in knowing the time intervals over which you can observe any given frequency in your signal. As you had suggested, you can examine small windows of your signal and perform FFTs on each of the small windows to determine what frequency content is contained in that window. By examining all of the windows, you will see when particular frequencies are prevalent in the original signal. You'd want to use the smallest allowable window to give you the most resolution, but one that is large enough to cover an entire period of the lowest frequency (so that you don't miss this frequency).
    I have attached an example program that performs this operation. The example performs this analysis on an array that represents audio data. I am basically performing multiple FFTs (for each window) and stacking these FFTs in time to form a 3D plot. By examining the 3D plot, I can then see when in time my frequencies of interest are at their peaks. Rather than graphing these plots, you may work out a different algorithm for programmatically determining and logging these peaks and times. I hope this is what you were looking for!

    It is listed under the advanced options for the WiFi settings or About Phone > Status within the phone's settings
    Motorolas list them under About Phone > Status.
    Edit:  Oh, snap!  It is listed in both places.     Nevermind!  Please excuse!

    How do you find the word count on MacBook, please?

    If you are trying to find word count in a Microsoft Word 2011 documemt, for instance, open the document and go to the Tools menu, selecting Word Count. In Apple's Pages application, open the document and look at the bottom of the page, near the left it will say "X Words" where X is the number.
    Best of luck.

    I've formatted my PC, how do you find the album you have bought in there on my account again?

    If you reformatted you disk, then you music was deleted.
    Apple only allows one download and advises that purchases are backed up.
    I guess you don't have a backup?
    If not you can recover purchased music from your iPod if you have one:

  • How do i find the pixels?

    I post a lot of art on websites so i usually export a pic to make it smaller and put it in a folder on my desk top. In that folder it shows how many KB the pic is but not what the pixels are. the only place i can find the pixels is in iPhoto when i look at the original and go to info.
    i ask because i am having trouble posting on one web site and even though my KB is low enough, they ask that the pics are under 800 x 800 pixels and i cant find that info in the reduced sized pictures. where would that info be?

    Select the photo and type Command + i to open the Info tray at the right.  There the pixel dimensions will be displayed.
    You can get the pixel dimensions down to a max of 800 pixels via the File ➙ Export ➙ File Export menu option while selecting a Custom size an entering 800 as the max dimension.

  • How do you find the number of lines in a file?

    I need to count how many lines there are in a file, I am using a BufferedReader to read in the data, but how can I find the number of lines?
    Thanks

    That depends. How do you define a line? Is it a specific number of
    characters, a String that's terminated by a newline character or some
    combination thereof?
