How do I take a gradient vector design into photoshop, add noise to it, and then return it back into Illustrator without the white background?
You can use some of the photoshop filters right in illustrator. Once you have converted the file to bitmapped (when you import it into photoshop), all of your vector data is lost and it cannot be used as an illustrator file again. Do your vector stuff first, then go over the finished image in photoshop.
