Roundtrip Logo From Illustrator to Photoshop

Dave Cross creates some grungy text graphics. By combining tools from Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, he creates a smart vector object that can be edited on the fly.

    Oh, yes Dave!
    That’s a great one!
    I never think this way in Illustrator (the alt-klick think). I always use this in InDesign but newer in Illustrator!
    Thanks a lot!
    Best regards from Austria

  • Kate says:


    I am loving this tutorial but it isn’t working for me all the way through. Is it done in CS4?
    Why when I make the opacaity mask am I unable to change the transparency settings such as hard light, soft light, screen etc?
    Also, I am trying to get my texture to open in Photoshop from Illustrator by holding down cmd/option and double clicking on the selected texture but I get a white arrow with a plus sign and it doesn’t go into Photoshop.
    I know this is an older tutorial but I’m hoping someone sees this and can help.

    Thanks –
