Adobe Illustrator has long been the most popular and viable vector-drawing program on the market but, for many, the learning curve is steep. In Illustrator CS3 One-on-One: The Essentials , author and leading industry expert Deke McClelland teaches the key features of Illustrator in a way that anyone can understand. He also goes beyond that, showing users how to get into the Illustrator "mindset" to make mastering Illustrator simple and easy. The training covers how to use the core drawing and shape tools, the transformation and reshaping features, text and gradients, and color management and printing features. Even if learning Illustrator has been a struggle in the past, this time it is going to make sense. Exercise files accompany the training.
In this chapter I'll show you how to establish some key performance-enhancing preferences, upgrade the color settings across the entire Creative Suite, get around an illustration, customize the interface and save your work space. It's all about coming to terms with Illustrator so that you can work inside the program with maximum efficiency and minimum frustration. So if you're familiar with previous versions of Illustrator, take note, Illustrator CS3 sports a very different interface than its predecessors, one that's consistent with Photoshop, InDesign and Flash. So learn it here and any other programs will seem more familiar as well.
All right, let's come to terms with our drawing environment and along the way, make sure that you and I are on the same page, so that we can enjoy and no tears, no tantrums, all smiles training experience. Let's make Illustrator behave.
