Is it possible to create a logo in Photoshop and then open the PSD file in Illustrator Al without flattening the layers and then saving it as a PDF and then it is in a vector format?

  • Why would you do it? Its easier to just do it in illustrator. But yes you can copyspaste individual items.

  • I am still new at this and learning. I have read a lot of comments and will start using Illustrator to make my life easier. I just wanted to convert my old files as I don't have any time to recreate the logos.

  • Another newbie advice is to always create logos in AI, not PS. You'll understand why as you gain experience.

Not possible. The only way is create your logo in photoshop with larger canvas size and high resolution then import and trace with illustrator.
