Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Resizing your artwork, part of Illustrator CS6 Essential Training.
In this next movie, we'll be exploring something that you've probably seen me do…a few different times throughout this course, but you might not have been…exactly sure how I did it.…So I've thought I'd take some time and actually show you how to resize your…artwork here inside of Illustrator.…So the first thing you have to do is actually have your artwork selected on the artboard.…So I've grabbed the Selection tool and I'll just grab my little bear here, and…once I grab the bear, you'll notice that I get a bounding box all the way…around the outside.…The bounding box is simply an invisible container that holds your artwork together.…
This container is where you're able to do all of the resizing directly on screen.…You'll notice that in the four corners of this bounding box, you have little squares.…These little squares are what we call control points and on those control…points, you can move your cursor to them, and you'll see that it turns into two…little arrows, in the corner here, here, and here, and down here as well.…
