Hi is it possible to copy something in photoshop and paste it into illustrator and maintain the transparency instead of having a white background?

  • Drag and drop usually works better but copy/paste should work. Copy/paste is somewhat dependent upon you OS because the clipboard is used. – Scott Feb 13 '15 at 7:10

Use the Library panel (Available in CC). The library panel deals with transferring artwork between Adobe programs much better than copy/paste drag/drop.

In Photoshop drag your artwork to the Library panel. (Window -> Libraries)

In Illustrator drag the artwork from your libraries panel to your artboard. (Window -> Libraries)
