Hi guys,

 

Im wracking my brain and going crazy with the following problem.

 

I made an image in illustrator which was just two Letters joined together. 

 

I pulled it into Photoshop to use the wand to delete overlaps rather than relying on my unsteady hand.

 

I now want to drag it back in to illustrator so i can tap on my swatch colour or pipette or anything to recolour it but i have two problems.

 

1. it will not recolour, before it would change to any colour i wanted whereas now the colour tab changes colour but it doesnt actually change.

 

2. It doesnt select around the image, you know how the wand tool 'selects', thats how it used to look in illustrator and how it does look in photoshop, but upon re dragging it into illustrator, it has four corners as if its a square image. 

 

WHat am i missing guys, is it no longer a vector?
