How can I cut up a raster image in Illustrator?
I want to split this apple (jpeg) into pieces along the outline I've created over it. I created and edited a pie chart/graph for the lines, then edited it to conform to the apple shape. I want to be able to show one piece of the "pie" at a time as a separate image. I tried
path > divide objects below and all of the pathfinder combinations I could. I used the graph tool to create the "pie" and edited it by hand to conform it to the apple shape.
Illustrator is not designed to work with raster images but if you need to cut the image up. You can do like scott said and use a clipping mask.
You can use your existing lines. I used the
pen tool to outline the shape.
I then selected both the apple jpg and the path I just created.
Go to the transparency panel and select
the end result
This is not the best approach but it is a way to "split" the image.
Note: If doing this, then you would need to copy the original image for each cutout you do.
