Outlines! - Adobe Illustrator Windows

I placed a tiff file and I want to edit the edges of the tiff file by "direct selection tool". I can't do it. How can I change it to outlines? Thanks...

    Dis,

    You said it. You "can't" using Selection tool. Most TIFF or any raster image work should be done in PhotoShop prior to Placing into Illustrator, but you CAN apply a Clipping Mask by outlining the area you wish to "crop" with an outline (rectangle usually), then with this path over the image, multi-select both path and image (marquee or Shift Click each), then Object, Clipping Mask, Make (Control 7).
