Learn about the process for selecting a preset and why to choose one over another.
- [Instructor] Okay, hopefully, by now…you've completed the challenge…and, remember, we weren't worried…about the type here at the bottom…because we're going to talk about how…to reset type later in the course.…So, let's zoom in here a little bit…on the logo elements themselves…and let's take a look at exactly what we're working with.…We've got just some basic rectangles here.…That's all they are.…Just rectangles that have been connected…and they're, basically in black and white…or shades of gray.…So, what's the best way to go about this?…Well, let's bring up the Image Trace panel first,…Window and then go down to Image Trace.…That's going to bring that up here…and I'm going to close the Advanced options…because I really don't need those for this I don't think.…
The first thing that I'm going to do…is choose the preset by dropping this down…and, seeing as this has two Shades of Gray,…I'm going to go down and choose Shades of Gray.…Once I do that, let's see exactly what it does.…It's going to go through and it may take a little longer…
