In Windows, the application must be OLE-compliant. To duplicate an entire image by dragging and dropping, use the move tool to drag the image. To copy an OLE object that contains .psd data, use the OLE Clipboard. (See your Windows documentation.) In Mac OS, the application must support Mac OS Drag Manager.
Dragging vector artwork from Adobe Illustrator or from other applications that use the Illustrator Clipboard rasterizes the artwork—the mathematically defined lines and curves of the vector art are converted into the pixels or bits of a bitmap image. To copy the vector artwork as a path in Photoshop, hold down Ctrl (Windows) or Command (Mac OS) as you drag from Adobe Illustrator. To copy type, you must first convert it to outlines.
