It might seem counterintuitive to consider using Illustrator, the preeminent vector-based print design tool, for creating pixel-based graphics, but that's exactly what Mordy Golding does in Illustrator CS3 for the Web. He focuses on Illustrator's strengths alongside other tools in the web design workflow, exploring unique features such as object-based editing, and the ease of repurposing art for print and Flash use. This course requires familiarity with Illustrator CS3, and while it provides an introduction to Flash integration, the focus is on effectively turning vectors into pixels, whether for the web, mobile devices, or video. Exercise files accompany the course.
Hello there. My name is Mordy Golding and welcome to Illustrator CS3 for the Web. In this title we'll focus primarily on creating graphics inside of Adobe Illustrator for use on the web or in reality, any graphic at all that's destined to be displayed on digital screen.

We'll take into consideration things like layout and design. Most importantly we'll talk about using Illustrator in combination with other important tools inside of your web design workflow, such as Flash and Dreamweaver, even Photoshop and Acrobat for that matter. So sit back, grab a beverage and let's get right into using Illustrator for creating Web graphics.
