Was the image selected in AD?
You can also right click on the image (selected) and choose "Convert to Curves".

Yes the image was selected. When I said the option was not available I meant it greyed out. attached is a screen shot. maybe something is wrong with my AD or I changed something. I don't know.
also forgot to say the file then place is also greyed out, so I just did a did a drag and drop. this is getting to be a  real pain.

This is interesting!  If you use the Image Place option, you must convert to curves. It doesn't matter if it's a jpg or a bmp - you have to Convert to Curves.

If you use the bitmap option (the way I did my styles), you do NOT have to Convert to Curves.  I did not know you could select them all to add to the Styles though. That's a real time saver!

If you're using the Image Place option, you can stack a whole bunch on the workspace (all in one pile), then select the whole pile, convert to curves, and while still selected, add them all as a style in one action.

I don't understand why they would be different though.

I could NEVER go back to pen and paper.  At one time, I had really lovely handwriting and even got a nice penmanship award.  However, my career killed all that.  In my years as a programmer, we had to print our code and make sure every letter was clear and clean because the keypunch operators punched your code into cards that were fed into the computer.  If you had one incorrect letter, it could cause your program to crash.  My printing was letter perfect. 

My handwriting suffered terribly from having printed for so many years. Then, when we got personal computers with keyboards, we didn't have much use for a pen or pencil and my printing now is almost unreadable.  I have typed on a computer keyboard since around the late 70's and it's become a way of life.  I seldom ever pick up a pen for anything.  My grocery list has a microphone so I speak that into my phone. Notes are all kept within a computer program. About the only time I write anything is once a month when I have to sign for my prescriptions or sign for a Visa card purchase.  The writing looks so foreign and doesn't even look like my name.

I remember the time when we had ink pens that you could refill with ink but at school, we had ink wells on our desks and a pen.  Then came out the incredible ball point pen which everyone said would never catch on because they didn't have a way to change the point whereas the pen had many different types of nibs that you could use depending on what type of writing you were doing.  That prediction did not come to pass.  Now, people don't even know what a fountain pen is!

The world has come such a long way in my lifetime and it just keeps getting better all the time!!  I don't have to iron anything because I only buy wrinkle-free stuff. I don't have to vacuum because my Roomba does that for me.  The dishes are washed automatically. I don't have to hang clothing outside on a line to dry, the dryer does it nicely.  I don't have to heat water on a stove to take a hand-bath.  I just turn on a faucet and out comes the water.  Don't have to light a kerosene light to brighten up the room - today I can just tell Alexa which light I want on and on it goes!   I don't have to go grocery shopping - can do all that via computer. Same with banking.  Never heard of a check as a child.  Even they have gone by the wayside and now everyone uses a little plastic card to pay for things.  So many many changes!  Can't imagine what thing will become in 80 year from now. :cancan: :cancan: :cancan:

Eileen, on my side I create styles one by one.
I place the file in AD, I convert it into a curve so that it can be used as a style. With the selected image I create the style from the selection.

1) "File", "Place...".
2) With the image selected, "Layer", "Convert to Curves".
3) Still with the image selected, go to the "Styles" tab of the Studio and expand the "Hamburger" at the top right of the window, choose "Add Style from Selection".

You can place multiple images anywhere on the page in AD, convert them to curves and then select them all to add them all at once in styles (following the same method used for a single file).

Thank you !! I am going to give this a try. :cancan:
