(MUSIC). Hi there, my name is Justin Seeley and I'm a staff author here at lynda.com. I'd like to welcome you to the Adobe Illustrator Creative Cloud Updates course. This course is going to be a little different from our normal courses here at lynda.com, because as Adobe continues to add things to Illustrator with its Creative Cloud subsciption service, we're going to continually update this course as well. So far Adobe has added some pretty nice new features to Illustrator via the Creative Cloud, and I'm excited to share some of those with you in this course. I'm going to start off by talking about enhancements to the graphics workflow inside of Illustrator.
This is where you learn how to use things like multiple file place, which enables you to instantly place multiple objects into your Illustrator document. We'll also explore the updated Links Panel to help better manage your linked files and you'll learn how to package your artwork for commercial print as well. Next up, we'll talk about working with text and I'll show you how to use the all new Touch Type Tools which allows users with a touch display to interact with text in a whole new way. You'll also learn some of the new Text Tool enhancements and how to search for fonts in the new Type Panels as well. From there we'll cover several more updates including the new Color Separations Panel, searching for swatches in your libraries, using raster graphics in your Illustrator brushes, working with Enhanced Pattern Brushes, and we'll also explore the new CSS and SVG toolset. Which should be a nice addition to your web design workflow. These are just the highlights really.
We'll cover all of these an more throughout the course. An as I said, if Adobe drops an update down the road, we'll be there to cover that to. It's an exciting time in the world of creative software, an we've got a lot to cover. So if you're ready, let's begin our look at the Adobe Illustrator Creative Cloud updates.
