(music playing) Hi, I'm Nigel French. Welcome to Photoshop for Designers, Working with Illustrator. In this course, we're going to be exploring some of the ways you can combine Photoshop with Illustrator. Because I believe the best way to learn something is by diving in a doing it. We'll be completing a series of mini projects that demonstrate how, in a real world way, these two powerhouse programs can be used together. Photoshop and Illustrator are fundamentally different, but share many of the same features and conventions.
I'll be concentrating on their areas of difference in order to demonstrate how, when using both together, we can play to their strengths. We'll look at extending our range of creative possibilities in Photoshop by leveraging the creative potential of Illustrator. In the form of Live Paint Groups, Symbol Sets, Extra Typographic options, Blends and Transformations. These are tools we don't have in Photoshop, but because we can seamlessly move artwork back and forth between the two programs. We can tap into a whole new range of options.
