    Creating a Transparent tiff in Photoshop CS3 to use in Illustrator

    Hi there,

    I need to create a transparent tiff in photoshop cs3 to place onto an illustrator file. I don't know how to do that, but I'm sure there is a way to do it, as I'm looking at an illustrator file that has transparent tiffs in it. the linked tiff file on illustrator reads as a bitmap tiff. you can change the color of this tiff on illustrator by simply changing the fill color.
    Please help

    ok, I figured it out! here's how it's done:

    When you have selected your layer (which you intend on being one colour) cut and paste it into a new document and make it grayscale, (settings should be resoulution: 200, colour mode: greyscale)

    Paste it into the new document then make it a bitmap, (output: 200 Method: Halftone Screen) click OK.

    For halftone Screen settings(frequency 55, Angle :25, Shape: ellipse) Click OK, then save as a tiff.
    Your settings should be (Image compression: LZW, Pixek order:Interleaved, Byte order: Macintosh)

    and thatís your tiff that can be brought into Illustartor and recoloured in any colour.
