enter image description hereI have been trying to figure this out for the last hour, but have not been able to yet. I am pretty sure this is a very basic operation. Can anyone provide me the url to a basic tutorial or just the steps? I just need to extract one icon from the grid of icons (pack of icons) that I just purchased and save it as a .png file so I can customize it with Adobe Photoshop.

    If this is an eps file, it should be entirely editable? Make sure the layers are not locked.

Use the Direct Selection Tool (the white arrow) to click-drag around one icon. Then Edit > Copy, File > New, Edit > Paste, File > Save As....

  • Thank you so much(: This was driving me absolutely batty! It works quite well.
