I'm trying to create one map, that doesn't lose its zoomability or clarity when you zoom in. I've used multiple large format maps, clipped the edges, and scaled them to fit each other, in Illustrator. I'm afraid I mistakenly used the wrong software or at least the wrong order of operations.
For a couple of the maps in my mosaic, I want to adjust the contrast, sharpness, and darkness, so some of the labels are more easily seen. I'd hate to think I did all of the scaling and clipping too early, and will have to redo all that work.
If I understand correctly, I can only do minimal color adjustments in Illustrator. So, how can I export these scaled and cropped, large format objects I've already placed in Illustrator, - into photoshop, so I can sharpen, etc. and re-place them into my Illustrator project without having to revert to the original files and start over?
