Adobe Illustrator can be used to accomplish many different design tasks, from illustration to app development. This course demonstrates core concepts and techniques that can be applied to any workflow—for print, the web, or building assets that will find their way into other applications. Author Justin Seeley explains the elements that make up vector graphics (paths, strokes, and fills) while showing how to use each of the drawing tools, and demonstrates how to combine and clean up paths and organize them into groups and layers. The course also covers text editing, working with color, effects, and much more.
Hello and welcome to Illustrator CS6 Essential Training. My name is Justin Seeley, and I'm a staff author here at lynda.com. I've been using Illustrator for nearly a decade, and it remains one of my favorite creative suite applications. We'll start off slow by covering the basics like creating documents for both print and web, and we'll dive headfirst into creating vector shapes like rectangles, circles, and even some complex artwork using the Shape Builder tool. I'll also walk you through working with bitmap images in Illustrator, and we'll go through my personal workflow for tracing both photographs and line art using Illustrator's Image Trace feature.
Finally, I'll walk you through outputting in a variety of formats for both print and web, and show you how you can use that artwork and other popular creative suite applications like Photoshop and InDesign. In short, I'll be showing you everything you need to create engaging artwork using Adobe Illustrator CS6. So if you're ready, let's jump right in and get started.
