Hi! I'm Justin Seeley, and I want to welcome you to Illustrator CS6 New Features. Illustrator is one of my favorite Creative Suite applications, and in this course, I'll be showing you all of the new and exciting things that Adobe has included in this latest release. We'll start off by taking a look at Illustrator's all new user interface. That's right, the UI has been completely redone in Illustrator CS6, and so have the panels. Next we'll explore the all new Pattern Creation tools in Illustrator. This is going to be a huge timesaver for those of you who need to create seamless tiles for web backgrounds or any other project.
My favorite new feature has to be the revamped Image Trace. This feature allows you to transform bitmap images into scalable vector artwork. We'll also cover other various performance and file management upgrades that Adobe has made to Illustrator, as well as a small but cool feature that allows you to add gradients to strokes. I'm excited to show you all these new things. So if you're ready, let's get started with our look at Illustrator CS6 New Features.
