Covering a wide range of topics, from advanced masking to chart creation, Illustrator CS4 Beyond the Basics reveals a whole new level of power, creativity, and efficiency with Illustrator. Instructor Mordy Golding explores how to work with Live Paint groups, get the most out of the Live Trace feature, and take advantage of Illustrator’s wide range of effects. He also discusses advanced transformation techniques, powerful 3D functionality, and important color concepts. Exercise files accompany the course.
If you have a lot of data to present, you may find it easier to do so in the form of a graph or chart. Now Illustrator has graphic and charting functions but to be honest with you, they haven't been updated since Illustrator 6. So the good news is though is that is a tremendous amount of power still involved in that particular feature and whether you bring data in from Excel or any other source as well, you may find it pretty easy to create your charts. But more importantly once those charts are created even though they may appear primitive at first, you can easily dress them up to do just what you want them to do inside of Illustrator.
So let's take a look at some of the graphic and charting functions that you have in this powerful program.
