How to embed images in Adobe Illustrator CC

November 4, 2019

Hey guy’s R4GE VipeRzZ here and today I’m
going to show you how you can embed an image in Adobe Illustrator CC, so I have this test
vector here that I’m going to bring onto the art board, and I will just roughly centre
it like so, and I will now press Crtl+Shit+S, and I will just save the image as an Adobe
Illustrator file on the desktop like so, and then I’ll click ok, and then I’ll just close
the file, and now if I come back to the desktop and I delete my test vector, and then I try
to open up the Adobe Illustrator file, as you can see it couldn’t find the image, and
that’s because it’s now been deleted, so now when it tries to go to the linked that it
saves it can no longer find the image, so to save the image to the actual Adobe Illustrator
file, what we need to do is we need to embed the image into the Adobe Illustrator file,
so to do that I’m just going to come back to the desktop, and I will just restore the
test vector like so, and then I will open up the Adobe Illustrator file again, and then
I will update it, so now we have our image back, so to embed the image all we’re going
to do is we’re going to click window, and then we’re going to click links, and now in
the links you now need to click on all the images that you want to embed, so I’m going
to click on my image here, and then I’m going to click the lines up here, and then I’m going
to click Embed Image(s) here, so once I click that the image will now be embed into the
Adobe Illustrator file, so now if I save the file again, and I close it, and then I delete
the test vector from the desktop, and then I open up the Adobe Illustrator file again,
as you can see the image is now still here as it is now embedded into the file it’s self,
