Adobe Illustrator has long been a popular vector–based drawing program, but for many the learning curve is steep. In Illustrator CS4 One-on-One: Fundamentals, author and leading industry expert Deke McClelland shows users how to get in to the Illustrator mindset and overcome this learning curve. He covers the application's key features in a new way, making it simple and easy to master Illustrator. Deke teaches viewers how to use the core drawing and shape tools, the transformation and reshaping features, text, and the Pen tool. He also explains how to export and print. Even if learning Illustrator has been a struggle in the past, this training can help make sense of it. Exercise files accompany the course.
We typically think of Illustrator as being a vector based drawing program. We think of it that way because that's what it is. But while Illustrator acquires you to create artwork as vectors, it lets you save that artwork any old way you want, including as pixels, which means exporting to a variety of different non-Illustrator file formats. For example, when exporting graphics for the web, you can choose from JPG, GIF, or PNG. When exporting to a Microsoft Office application such as PowerPoint, your best bet is PNG. You can even export a PSD file with key objects rendered out to independent layers and editable text intact for use in Photoshop.
Illustrator for pixels, it's an idea whose time is about to come, in the very next exercise.
