Place psd file into Illustrator without losing quality


I want import a psd file into Illustrator without losing quality.

I have a 300dpi image at Photoshop with height 60 cm, as you can see below.

enter image description here (You can see a smooth "D")

I create an Illustrator document with height 100cm and "Raster Effects: 300 ppi". enter image description here

But when I "File/Place" the .psd file i get the below result. enter image description here

The photo in Illustrator loss quality. Why this happens?

How can I place psd file into Illustrator with best quality?

Thank you.

I can't really say why your having a problem with that, but I suppose the best way to maintain quality is to not embed the image at all.

When you do a Place make sure the Link checkbox is checked.

The image will remain a PSD file, and the representation you see in Illustrator will just be a preview, so no quality can be lost until you export to something else from Illustrator.
