    Default How do you bring a Bitmap image into Illustrator with a transparent background

    I have a small bitmap I need to add to a logo in Illustrator 10, The bitmap image is in Photoshop CS. Dragging the image over and dropping it in gives the bitmap a white background. Placing the image using PLACE from the FILE Menu does the same thing, I want to use the Bitmap on top of text without it having a background.

    I even applied a clipping path in Photoshop saved it as an EPS and brought it over only to have the same problem.

    Any thoughts.

    I'm not sure why it's not working for you. All bitmaps I bring in have transparent backgrounds.
    I'm assuming you are talking about a true 1bit black and white bitmap image. When you save the file and Place it what file format are you using. I always use TIFF. Otherwise you could try EPS with the transparent white option from Photoshop.
    Also, have you tried importing it into any other application to see if it works ok in them InDesign etc?
