I've been Place Embedding Illustrator files (PDF or ai files) that need a white background into photoshop - basically label art that goes onto a product container.

 

Most of the time it works, but lately some files have been coming into Photoshop with a transparent background, while others embed fine with the desired white background.

 

What can i do to ensure the Illustrator file retains its white background when embedding into Photoshop?

Has something changed about the Illustrator files you are embedding? Do the previous Illustrator files actually have a solid white background contained within them?

Ensure that Illustrator file has white background. By default you are starting without any background. In Illustrator go to View > Show Transparency Grid to see whether you have any background.

Unless the Illustrator file has an opaque white background in it, when placed in Photoshop the background will be transparent.
