How do I trim a picture using Adobe Illustrator CS4?

Post by computerkid1328 on 14th June 2009, 2:07 am

Hi. I was wondering how can you trim the outline of a picture using Adobe Illustrator. My dad insists that you can using the pen tool in Illustrator but it doesn't work. Can somebody please tell me how? Thank You!

I'm not sure but I think that you can with the pen tool, once you draw around the area you want/don't want and make it into a full shape by connecting the first and last line together, you can right-click and Make Selection. Once you got that you can press delete, but I'm not sure if this works on Illustrator because I only use Photoshop.
