Description

In this series of lessons, we will focus on creating graphs in Illustrator. We'll get started by learning how Illustrator sees our data and what it returns to us as a graph. Next, we'll learn how to create and modify a basic graph using the graph data window. We'll also take a look at some ways that we can bring data in from an outside application such as Microsoft Excel for use in our graph. From there, we'll focus on improving the visual appeal of our graph, first using graph designs, and then by applying graphic styles. Finally, we'll learn how we can really take our graph to the next level using 3D effects inside Illustrator. Software required: Illustrator CS5.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hello and welcome to this series of lessons dedicated to creating compelling graphs in Illustrator, presented by Digital-Tutors and Adobe Authorized Training Partner. My name is Eddie, and I'll be walking you through the graph creation tools available to us within Illustrator. We'll get started by learning how Illustrator sees our data and what it returns to us as a graph. Next, we'll learn how to create and modify a basic graph using the graph data window. We'll also take a look at some ways that we can bring data in from an outside application, like Microsoft Excel, for use in our graph. From there, we'll focus on improving the visual appeal of our graph, first by using graph designs, then by applying graphic styles. Finally, we'll learn how we can really take our graph to another level using three-dimensional effects inside Illustrator. After completing this course, you'll have all the necessary knowledge to begin creating truly amazing and statistically accurate graphs right inside of Illustrator, so let's go ahead and get started with our next lesson.
