We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
I can't believe I can't figure this out. (I came over from Freehand, and it was simple).
All I want to do is:
1) Crop a placed photo within Illustrator
2) Create a border around it.
I can't seem to find the answer in any help file. Is it so simple in Illustrator that they don't explain how to do it? I don't want to create crop marks for the entire image, just crop off part of a photo without going back into Photoshop. How?
Thanks very much.
Has anyone (else) noticed the dates from the OP until post #3?
We could have answered it in the fair forums, but now it is too late.
We are doomed.
Looks like the Y2K effect finaly cought up with us. Or Adobe is having a laugh on us.
Has anyone noticed that question 2) in post #0 is still unanswered? Some are doomed, indeed.
Where is that, post a link.
The border around the photo.
Well, I would imagine that's because it's not hard to put borders around clip masked objects...for the 1 or 2 of you out there who don't actually know, there's several ways of accomplishing borders in Illustrator. 1) Brush tool, nuff said. 2) Create a box around your object using the rectangle tool, then apply whatever brush you create for your border, or just leave it as a box, for the minimalistic look.
Does that answer question #2?
Not sure. I'm one of the 1 or 2. Will have to study it.
Look what you started, Kurt.
If there are more than one more, does that mean that some are the same one, maybe even more than one same one that is more?
Now we are talking.
I am sure Kurt can answer that one.
Harron, it seems that both Kurt and I have had to attend to other things during the dark hours (of ours).
If Kurt is one of the 1 or 2, and if there are more than one more (than Kurt), that will make at least three (of the 1 or 2); and then the question is: does that mean that some are the same one, maybe like Philip and Philippus (which leads us back to the threads of the fair forum, or at least to some Phantom Threads from the fair forum), and if there are four or more, maybe even more than one same one that is more?
I'm actually kind of glad I ended up with a fever last night, and had to divert my attention to it...I'm lost now. I just draw the pretty pictures.
I am pleased to hear that the fever did not conjure up something worse than a Phantom thread or three from the old days.
But if you reread post #18, the rest is based upon a simple calculation.
Ahh...yep. It's all becoming clear to me now.
And please stop providing meddlesome advertisement, Nathan.
hiiii . hey there's chicken !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You miigt be able to solve some problems using the art board tool. this tool will help you "resize the canvas" so to speak. ; )
if you want to crop any image.than i will suggest you to visit the link below
thank you very much.
There has always been a crop tool ACTUALLY.. I just got CS5 not too long ago and have found that is has been renamed to Artboard Tool.
Use this tool to create the bounding box and once you're ready to export, do so and then click on the 'use artboards' box at the bottom of the export window.
