Basic Information

When you have to move your design from Adobe Illustrator to Adobe Photoshop you will have to options, one is export which I never use and second is copy your desired part of design and paste in Photoshop. When you will paste your design in Photoshop it will give you a few options:

  • Smart Object
  • Pixels
  • Path
  • Shape Layer

You have to choose one them option.

1- Smart Object

If you select Smart Object option that is good because you can edit anytime time your design by double clicking on the layer. You can resize this object as you want it will not be pixalting and when you need to edit this just double click on its layer and it will get open in Illustrator because originally it was designed in Illustrator.

Pixels

If you select Pixels then you design will appear as raster image and this method is not recommended at all. Because once you pasted neither you can enlarge this nor you can edit it. You can simple avoid this option.

Path & Shape Layers

This method is recommended as well like Smart Object. In this method you will get all original layers and objects as they were in Illustrator. The most useful benefit is you can edit them within Photoshop because now you have full control of layers. You can change the colors and modify the shapes according to your requirement.
