Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding finishing touches to your graphics, part of Illustrator for Web Design: Aesthetics.
- Alright we're almost home.…We've got a lot of things done so far.…As you can see our mock up is coming together nicely…but there's still a little work to do.…After all our images just don't look quite right.…So we need to put those finishing touches on them…to make sure that everything just sort of falls into place.…So let's start again, once more, from the top…and let's take a look at what we can do here.…So first things first, we need to take care of…this big gigantic mountain image back here.…And we need to make sure that…it fits in the upper-header area.…So in order to do that what we're going…to do is work with a Clipping Mask.…
So I'm going to grab the Rectangle Tool, and I'm just going…to make sure that it has no Fill,…and no Stroke, before I start off.…And then I'm going to click right here in the top,…and let's make this…a 1,200 pixel wide image by 500 pixels tall.…And let's hit OK.…And once I do then it creates this shape which should…fit right along with the top Header here.…And then I'll click on the mountain image, holding Shift.…
