I've imported the layers from Photoshop and have been able to create the lozenge shape I have by tweaking an ellipse placed over the original. In Photoshop the lozenge has an embossed effect on it, can I replicate that effect in Illustrator using the same technical settings (depth, angles etc,)?
Also having not used (an old version) Illustrator much, in CS5 can you still change text to line, or is it called something different now?
Having been told that by creating the image in Illustrator, even the tonal areas are seen as Vector graphics, is this so and if so how is that acheived? - not being very technically minded, I just can't get my head around that.
