- [Voiceover] Hi there, and welcome to Creating Retina Graphics with Photoshop and Illustrator. My name is Justin Seeley, and I'm a staff author for the design segment here at Lynda.com. In this course, we'll be talking about high DPI, AKA retina graphics, and how to create them properly using Photoshop and Illustrator. You'll be learning the core concepts of retina graphics, including why we need to create them in the first place for our web and screen-based projects, and also the platform guidelines for retina graphics across different operating systems. From there, we'll jump into Photoshop and Illustrator, where you'll learn my rules for retina, as well as the difference between up-scaling and down-scaling, and how to properly create assets for high-resolution screens.
We'll wrap things up with a look at how to save your artwork for web distribution, and I'll show you a few ways to maximize your productivity using some automation shortcuts, as well. As devices and monitors continue to evolve into higher resolutions, we, as designers, have to evolve our workflows. Hopefully by the end of this course, I'll have give you the tools you need to start designing for this ever-changing landscape.
