Find out how to choose a color theme using the color guide panel in Illustrator.
- [Instructor] Now we've drawn our logo.…We're actually going to get Illustrator…to help us out to build the color theme for it.…Everything we've drawn so far has no fill and a black stroke…so we're going to swap those things out.…If we select all of these items with the selection tool,…hold down shift and tap X,…that transposes the fill and stroke.…You can do that down at the bottom of the toolbox…just here with this small curved arrow…but the shortcut is much, much quicker.…
So we have a base color in mind…and we've got RGB values for that…and so we're going to go to the color panel…which in the workspace we're using at the moment…should be at the top of this stack…next to the properties panel.…Well if you don't find it just go to the window menu…because that's where all of them live in there.…So go to the color panel…and mine has the options showing already.…If you can just see this ramp here…and a few swatches above it,…you can click on the flyout here and choose, show options.…
But as mine's already open, then I'll continue with that.…
