We explore injective morphisms from complex projective varieties X to projective spaces s of small dimension. Based on connectedness theorems, we prove that the ambient dimension s needs to be at least 2dimX for all injections given by a linear subsystem of a strict power of a line bundle. Using this, we give an example where the smallest ambient dimension cannot be attained from any embedding X n by linear projections. Our focus then lies on X = n1 ×× nr, in which case there is a close connection to secant loci of SegreVeronese varieties and the rank 2 geometry of partially symmetric tensors, as well as on X = (q0,,qn), which is linked to separating invariants for representations of finite cyclic groups. We showcase three techniques for constructing injections X 2 dim X in specific cases.
