halftones in Illustrator - Adobe Illustrator Macintosh

I have someone who has sent me photographs in Illustrator. I need to know what resolution these photographs are. Is there a way to tell this? (I have access to both Illustrator 9 and Illustrator CS)...

    If the file is an .AI file, and the images are embedded, Illustrator won't tell you anything about the image. Your best bet is to cut the photo out of Illustrator, switch to Photoshop, create a new doent with the settings that it suggests, and then paste the photo into the PS doent.

    If the file was just Placed in Illustrator, just refer to the source image.

    Your answer is in the doent info palette.

    Select all, then access the doent info palette and scroll to embedded images.

    This will tell you all you want to know about the embedded image, most importantly the pixel count... resolution is secondary.

    In Illustrator 9 it's in the file menue. They have moved it in AI10 to the window menue. I don't have AICS, so I don't know where it is now.

    Do not get confused with the info pallet. It is totally different.
