Video: Welcome

(music playing) Hi, my name is Chad Chelius. I'm a trainer, author, consultant, and user of Adobe software for more than 20 years. I don't just teach Adobe Illustrator. I use it every day to create logos, graphics, website mock ups and much, much more. I think you're really going to enjoy this workshop. You see, Adobe has added some great features to Illustrator CS6. And for the first time in Adobe's history, they're offering CS6 via a subscription model called Creative Cloud. In this workshop, I'll walk you through each new feature of Illustrator CS6, including the Creative Cloud updates.

I'll show you why you can expect Illustrator to run faster and with more stability than ever. I'll teach you how you can apply gradients to the stroke of a path, and how to create a pattern swatch easier than ever before. You'll also learn about the enhanced Image Trace feature and performance improvements to filters like Gaussian Blur. Each lesson in this course will cover, in detail, the new features added in Illustrator CS6. I'm proud to be the author on this course. And I hope you find it useful, and have fun learning the new features in Illustrator CS6.
