Now, I have placed in a Photoshop file. It is now time to bring in an illustrator file as well, so I am going to go ahead and turn off the preview mode, go back up to the File menu, go down, and choose Place again and Quick Start Tool folder, go ahead and choose “invitation.ai”, the native illustrator file. Now, what I am going to do on this one is to turn on this button that says, “Show Import Options” because I do have the ability to change how much of the illustrator file comes across. I am going select that and click “Open” and then in this dialogue box it appears, I am going to make sure it says “Crop to Art”. Not to crop which you see brings in the entire illustrator file and the graphics in the center, just going to go ahead and choose “Art” and click “Okay”. Now, you see this time, it loads up a different cursor, very different to the paintbrush you saw a while ago. This is a PDF icon. It is the native file format, open illustrator file is actually PDF, so I am just going to click and let go to drop that file in. If I move that over here across the Photoshop file, you can see it is actually just a couple of words that says, “An Invitation”. Now, if I zoomed up on that, you can see that the quality of this is looking very rough. Photoshop files looks pretty in the background, but the illustrator file looks very, very poor. That is because we are viewing something called, “Typical Display Performance” which is currently set to view all illustrator files in low resolution, but do not worry, we are going to change that in our preferences when we set them up in the next lesson. But, just for now, we will keep it as it is.
Now, what I want to quickly do is change the size of these, its rotation and its opacity, so we can use the control palette for a lot of these things. First thing here, is to come up and change its over all scale size, simply going to select one of these 100% values and change it down to 50%. What I will do is key it on one and when I hit Return or Enter, it will apply in proportion, so both axis change at the same. Then, come across here and simply select the rotation value, key in 90 degrees that will rotate up on its side. I am just going to move this across into the 2nd column. Now, what I quickly do is to zoom down, so you can see it a bit more clearly. Scroll this page across and I am just going to drag this up, so it snaps into where our line is and also into the top margin of the page. Now, because it is on the correct layer, if we turn on our preview mode, a black line should quite happily sits on top of the text. That is exactly how I want it, almost for the text to go slightly underneath the line, so this is another good reason for layering the images as we work. Now, we can bring in a 2nd title. I am just going to turn off the preview mode and again fit the page in the window, so I can see the entire thing. Then to go back to Place once more and again inside the Quick Start Tool Photo, there is another illustrator file, this one called “launch title.ai”. Once, you got that one selected, just go ahead and click open at the bottom. Once again, it will bring up the place dialogue box which you can see it says “Place PDF” even though this is an illustrator file and again, I am saying “crop to art” just so we do not bring in excess file size. Click “Okay” and scroll the page across, and once again click to drop this one in, so this one actually says “2005 Exhibition Launch” and we will scale this one down exactly the same ways. So, this one, I am going to bring a little bit smaller, maybe 40%, key that in, also rotate this to 90 degrees and like so. And position that one on the next margin again align to the top, so it snaps into that middle guide and underneath the line as well. Now, we can bring in another Photoshop file at this point. This is going to go further down here. I want to bring in an image of the museum itself, so people can see what the museum looks like on the cover of this invitation. Again, I am just going to double check that in the Layers Palette, I have the images layer selected, so
