Illustrator Insider Training: Rethinking the Essentials is the first installment in a series of courses designed to show experienced Illustrator users to how master core features and build art more efficiently. Adobe Illustrator has evolved dramatically over the years, and many creative professionals may be missing out on features that have been added to the latest versions. This course takes a fresh approach to core concepts, such as paths, attributes, object hierarchy, groups, and layers. Advanced techniques such as combining multiple effects and customizing textures are also included. Exercise files and a free worksheet are included with the course.
Go ahead. Take a guess. What do you think is the most often-used effect inside of Illustrator? That's right. It's the drop shadow. I've always felt that people add those soft drop shadows just because they can. Well, in reality, there are a lot more effects inside of Illustrator above and beyond the drop shadow. However, many people shy away from them, because they don't really understand what those effects do. For example, there's an effect inside of Illustrator called Convert to Shape. And I've always kind of been thrown for a loop on that one, because why would I ever want to draw a shape and then convert it to another shape? If I really wanted that shape, I would just draw it to begin with.
There are many effects inside of Illustrator, and also some pixel-based effects, that can be incredibly powerful if we just really understand what they do. Well, in this chapter, we'll learn all about these effects, and we'll see how to make use of them on a day-to-day basis.
