    I have files upon files of textures and I was wondering if there was any way I could load an entire folder into Illustrator to be used as a Fill Swatch. Basically, I would like to have the option that, all textures(.jpg) within that folder would appear as palette options in which I can select a style for filling any shapes I create. Any Ideas.

    I own Illustrator CS3 and I am working off an Acer Laptop using Windows Vista. I am unsure if that info helps or not.

    Any advice would be exponentially great.

    The only way you could do that is first importing ALL images, creating swatches from them, and then save the swatch library with all the swatches in it.

    Once you did that, you can then just import this swatch library and all your swatches/images will be in it.
