Illustrator :: Corporate Logo - Combining To Vector Shapes

Jan 25, 2014

I am working on a corporate logo consisting of two different shapes, and I want to combine them into one. The end result has to be a vector image.
One of the shapes is slightly bigger than the other one, and I want to remove the parts that are at the outside of the other shape. It's a little tricky to explain, but what I want to do, is equal to the "Paste into"-option in Photoshop where an inserted object is placed within the borders of another.
Is this possible in Illustrator?
I'm not that familiar with paths, so I don't know what to do...

Photoshop :: Combining Vector Shapes

Oct 16, 2012

Vector shapes, very cool! However, when I create the first shape, then choose a different shape, select Subtract Front, and create, it works fine—reverses out the fill, no problem. But if I have to redo the shape, still making sure Subtract Shape is selected, the second time, it doesn't reverse out. I've tried everything I can think of to inverse it... No luck! The only way I can get it to work on a redo, is by relaunching PS and deleting my settings. What am I missing?

Illustrator :: Copying Vector Shapes To Fireworks?

Sep 14, 2013

I've been having an issue with Adobe CC Fireworks. Every time I try to copy a vector shape or an image from illustrator and paste it to fireworks, I get this error: "Alert can't open the illustration". I am running OS 10.8.4 and I've tried installing it on a newly purchsed MacBookPro and on an iMac but I still get the same error.

Illustrator :: Corporate Color Is Out Of Gamut For CMYK

Mar 7, 2014

I inherited a color from someone who has departed my company. It's a lovely, bright blue. He has rolled out this blue in all of our UI...that rebranding is complete. Now I come in to update the other corporate materials around this shade of blue only to find that it is out of gamut. When I click to correct it, I end up with a totally dull and lifeless shade of blue. The contrast between these two blues is really quite severe. No one except a color-blind person or maybe just a blind person would think they were the same. I am at my wit's end. One thing I am thinking of doing is getting one of those Pantone books and try to find a suitable blue using my own eyeballs because all of this has occurred on my computer monitor. Do you think I will find a better match that way or do you think Illustrator is tops at finding the right substitute?

Illustrator :: How To Get Black Shapes As One Solid Logo Without White Showing

Oct 9, 2013

Here is what my artboard looks like. What I'm trying to do is just get the black shapes as one solid logo without the white showing. For example, if I were to place this in another Illustrator project, it would still have the white rectangles with full transperency. I tried a tut online, but when I place the AI file into another project, the WHOLE image is invisible.
If I were to open this AI file in Photoshop, I could use the Magic Wand to delete the white parts and leave just the black shape. I want to be able to resize the black shape and use it on banners, avatars, etc.
Background notes: I am using this for my gaming website and I would like to be able to use this for my logo. (Crossfire)

Photoshop :: How To Properly Import Vector Shapes From Illustrator

Dec 19, 2012

I used to be able to copy a shape in Illustrator, paste it in Photoshop, and then duplicate the shape layer, removing what I wanted from each layer.

Now that doesn't seem to work, and what's worse, strokes are all messed up - if I apply a stroke to the whole layer, it isn't all visible. If I delete parts of the layer that are unwanted, certain pieces remain invisible, even if I apply a stroke (and fill, for that matter).

Illustrator :: Possible To Create Vector Objects As Compound Shapes

Mar 19, 2014

I'd like to start utilizing Illustrator more frequently for web and user interface design projects, but I still like taking everything into Photoshop for final rendering and compositing (and the simple fact that most developers want psds, not ai files). However, I find that the only way to successfully transfer all of the vector artwork from Illustrator and preserve it as vector objects in Photoshop (when exporting) is to manually convert every individual vector object in Illustrator to a Compound Shape (by selecting the shape and clicking Make Compound Shape from the Pathfinder palette menu). This can be very tedious if it has to be done after the design is complete, and very inefficient if you convert every object as you draw it.
Is there a way to set Illustrator to automatically create every vector object drawn as a Compound Shape without having to manually convert it?
Adobe Illustrator allows you to export your Illustrator document as a Photoshop document. However, Compound Paths (not Compound Shapes - see this article for not-so-great explanations comparing the two) – which is the default attribute applied to all of Illustrator's basic vector objects – do not convert into vector objects when the exported document is opened in Photoshop. Rather, the vector objects drawn in Illustrator get flattened into raster layers in Photoshop, making them poor candidates for refining the design in Photoshop.

Photoshop :: Combining 2 Shapes In CS6

Aug 14, 2012

I have a shape, it has no fill, so it's just an outline, let's say it's an outline of a leg.
Now what I want to do is draw another outline inside that leg outline, but I don't want 2 end up with 2 separate shapes (2 layers), I want to draw the 2nd outline directly into the first one, so it's all one big vector shape.
For some reason this seems impossible to do in Photoshop CS6. If I select combine shapes, from the menu, free form pen tool and then draw the 2nd outline into the 1st outline, when I stop drawing I don't end up with one outline combined (on top of) the first, instead it just seems to do some weird clipping and I end up with the first outline shrinking, and the outline I just drew appearing not as an outline but as a path.
This is something that works perfectly in Flash pro, you draw a shape, you draw another one on top and you then have both perfectly combined, no fuss no bother. You can even vary the stroke strength at any point along the line in Flash, I'm not sure this is even possible in Photoshop.

what's going wrong in photoshop or how to do that in photoshop?

Photoshop :: Combining A Logo Pic With A Folded Material Pic

Mar 3, 2008

I watched someone take 2 files: a company logo and a photo of a piece of silk.

The outcome of the demo was that the logo was superimposed on the folded silk, so that it looked like the silk had the logo printed on it.

The effect was stunning, with shadows, folds, etc making it look realistic.

Photoshop :: Vector Shapes Rasterized?

Aug 24, 2012

I am using Photoshop CS6
I'm in the process of preparing vector graphics for an After Effects motion graphics project. I decided to use the new vector features in CS6 because I am more friendly with the PS interface than I am with Illustrator.
I've created several vector shape layers that now, after some work, now look like rasterized graphics. I'm not exactly sure what happened but I am sure I have not rasterized them myself.
Also, when I import the graphics into After Effects, it gives me no option to collapse transformations or continuously rasterize the layers.
Have I done something to rasterize the shape objects in Photoshop? New shape objects I create are vector. Do I need to start over?

Photoshop :: Random Shapes Appear When Using Vector Mask

Feb 7, 2013

For several months I have had random shapes appear in my files when using vector masks. The scrambled imagery only appears at random and at certain zooms (over 25%) and will disappear upon restart of Photoshop. If I flatten the file, it will retain the scrambled imagery, but otherwise it seems to not actually corrupt the data, just the view on screen. I've been fighting this for months and have replaced drives, video cards, and it still persists.

Photoshop :: How To Import Eps Files As VECTOR Shapes?

Dec 12, 2005

Ok I know CS2 can import eps files however it converts them to raster images at import.

I also know it can deal with Vector files - as in the 'shape' tool (.CSH format)

How can I easily get my catalogue into the shape tool? ie convert .eps to .csh?

The import is far to unwieldy as I can't even browse my library of eps files...

Photoshop :: Closing Default Vector Shapes

Dec 23, 2004

To my surprise I noticed that Photoshop's default shapes like rectangle, triangle, diamond, etc are not closed shapes. Strange, because who wants to pull a corner and then discover that it's actually two points on top of each other?

Is there a quick way to close them without removing the last anchor point and then connecting the 2nd last point with the first one?
