Hey,

I've tried to import vector shapes that only consists of strokes from illustrator to photoshop and convert them into frames so I can fill them with pictures, but I can't figure out how to do it.

Could anybody explain how in a way that a noob can understand? 🙂

regards

Can you post an example of the vector shape as it appears in Illustrator?

 

Ideally you would copy the object in Illustrator to the clipboard then in photoshop paste (Edit>Paste) as a Shape layer and go to Layer>New>Convert to Frame, however, the vector from illustrator may be to complicated for photoshop to convert to a shape layer.

Another way instead of using frame layers is to paste your vector as a Smart Object, put the image in the layer above the smart object and then Create a clipping mask by going to Layer>Create Clipping Mask.

Thanks for your reply!

I was trying to do it with the first method you explain but it didn't work, altough my shape is really simple. I'm probably doing something wrong.

Anyway, the method with a smart object and a clipping mask works perfect!

 

best regards,

Martin
