I have a rectangle. I placed a tif behind it (move to back). I selected both and "make clipping mask." I want to move the tif behind the rectangle to place exactly the right edge of tif at right edge of rectangle. I double click on tif and am able to move it. But when I do, it doesn't show me the edges of the rectange (stroke = 3). So I cannot tell where to stop dragging tif.
Thank you from this complete newbie. (Can you tell?)
Forgot to say - I'm using Illustrator.
I thought when you made a clipping mask it only operated on the fill area and doesn't include the stroke (it discards the stroke)?
You can resetablish the stoke by selecting the mask path with direct select/hollow tool.
Knowing when to use the direct select tool open up many features in Illustrator, I used to often.
Finally may I add that you should try using the .PSD format. There are advantages of efficiency and integration with other programs to using .PSD, while I know of no advantages to .tif (though am sure will hear on this forum if there are any, now that I said that)
