Illustrator CS5 New Features Overview

with Rufus Deuchler

Video: Welcome

Hi there. My name is Rufus Deuchler. In this course I will be giving you and overview of what is new in Adobe Illustrator CS5. I'm a designer, dreamer, and worldwide software evangelist. I've been using Adobe software since the late 80's. And now, I find myself travelling the world, to share my knowledge and experience. In this overview, I will be showing you some new, creative tools and features that will make your life with the application much easier. I expect that you already have some knowledge of Illustrator, preferably CS4, because I will be building on top of existing workflows and techniques to show you the many new and exciting additions to the application.
