Today I started chapter 13 and it confused me really badly. Ever since the typing I’ve been getting lost trying keep up with the video and have to replay them A LOT.
On this chapter I learnt how to place files with just simple edit/ place menu selection, then I went on to modifying the picture and if iI modify the picture the whole file change and allows me to set these changes into the AI project and then what changes I made will apply themselves to the placed picture. Last of all i learnt how to embed linked files to the current AI file. Its pretty simple but makes a giant change. embedding files makes the apart of the AI file instead of being a linked file and unembedding them makes them a PSD file again then makes it a linked file to the AI project you are currently working on. With this feature if you go to the linked files panel you can directly edit the original file and that will open the original linked file in Photoshop instead of Apple Preview.
