Using Vectors (.eps and .ai) in Photoshop

I had Photoshop for two years, probably, before I discovered that vectors can be opened and used in PS. They are all Adobe, right? It makes sense. From the responses I have received on my own blog, apparently, not too many folks do know this. I try to bring it up frequently because it adds so many more versatile resources for digital scrapbooking or whatever. I put together a tutorial that shows how I open and use a vector file:

I hope this makes sense and it is okay to post here and like this. If not, please advise and I will make the adjustments. Thank you!

By the way, this tut is all my work, except font the font, which I did credit.


Great tip! Thanks for sharing!

That's actually a really great way to explain it! (I've known about this capability for awhile myself, mainly because I don't really understand, or currently have access to, Illustrator, so use Photoshop for everything I can. smiley But I also like your explanation of vector vs. raster images - I've tried to explain it to non-designers a miiilllion times, and am usually met with blank stares. lol.

Thank you so much for sharing this great tip!

Thank you for this great tip! I have been struggling to get vectors into PS to work with and this will be a great help!

Thanks Su! Do you have too much jagged edges doing that way?
