Importing shape layers from Photoshop to Illustrator without rasterizing
on Mar 19, 2013 at 11:21:39 pm

I have a bunch of illustrations all made up Photoshop shape layers and was wondering if there would be a quick way of importing the files into Illustrator by retaining the shape layers without rasterizing them? I have a tonne of shapes so just clicking them all individually and selecting their paths to copy just isn't an option...

there is an option in PS,
file/Export/Paths to Illustrator.

I'm not sure how you are using these paths. if they are masks or if you are using them as Vector shapes only... i have never needed to do a work flow like this but it might get you a little closer to your goal.

Thanks for that. I found I can just open the Photoshop files within Illustrator and certain shape layers will be retained - as long as there are no clipping masks and/or layer styles applied to them. This is unfortunate as many of the shape layers in the Photoshop document have them...

Thanks for your help though!

Hello

is there a way to MOVE FROM ILLUSTRATOR TO PHOTOSHOP WITHOUT RASTERIZING ???

I found that
http://www.webdesignerdepot.com/2013/05/how-to-move-from-illustrator-to-pho...

But it includes a Firework derivation...

Or
They need to be compound shapes in order to be exported as shape layers into a PSD.

You could also use the ArtBlue plugin to export your shapes into a Photoshop shape library.
Amazon Canvas

If you have any clue let me know !
