Illustrator Tutorial

Importing a Picture

To import a picture into your document you actually want to Place it. To place an image, go to File and scroll down towards the middle of the menu and select Place.

Once you have chosen Place a window will appear showing a finder window that allows you to select the photograph of your desire from anywhere stored on your computer. After selecting the photograph, press OK and the image should appear in your workspace.

If the image is not in the desired spot on the page, click and drag to where you wish it to be located. If you want to either shrink or enlarge you photograph, grab the selection tool (the black arrow) and while holding down the Shift key drag and pull to the size you wish it to be.
