[Ask BB] Illustrator: Document Raster Effects Settings

Eddie, a relatively new Illustrator user had a question about raster images in Illustrator. Eddie asks: “I have imported a raster image into illustrator and I would like to know the properties of it (ie dpi). Is there a way of doing this in Illustrator (ie properties box that exists in Corel)? I'm not sure about a Corel equivalent, but there are options in Illustrator to help you out.

Illustrator: Document Raster Effects Settings

First of all, when creating a new document, you can set the raster effects right away in the “New Document” window.

Second, if your document is already created, you can go to Effects > Document Raster Effects Settings to find out what those settings are for your current document.

Third, you can see the pixel dimensions of an image by clicking on it and looking in the “Info” palette. (This can also be seen in the toolbar at the top of the Illustrator window.)
