Take Vector Paths from Photoshop into Illustrator
by Jay Hilgert
on March 29, 2007
Many times in the past I had found that I wanted to take a vector path from Photoshop (CS) and somehow get it to Illustrator for further use. There are lots of great and free Photoshop custom shapes out there, many of which might be more useful to you in Illustrator, if that’s what you prefer. That’s what Illustrator is for, right? Vectors.
Photoshop custom shapes come in vector format, just like drawing with the rectangle tool. Unfortunately, there aren’t as many custom shapes available for Illustrator, in the form of symbols. (at least not that I have encountered) I want to show you an easy way to get a vector path from Photoshop into Illustrator so you can take advantage of all those free custom shapes available out there, and possibly save you some time drawing.
