Welcome Welcome to Illustrator CC Building on the Fundamentals. This class is designed to be a follow-up course from our Illustrator CC Fundamentals class here on trainsimple. com. So I'm assuming you have at least that amount of knowledge in Illustrator. If you're brand new to Illustrator, I would recommend going back to the Fundamentals course, completing that, and then joining us here for the Building on the Fundamentals course. So, what exactly are we going to be covering in this class? Well, we're going to be covering quite a bit, but we're going to start off by talking about how we can select content, which may seem like a pretty basic topic, but believe it or not there are some things that you should be aware of inside of Illustrator that will make you more productive inside the application. We're also going to talk about how you can work with appearances, groups, and layers to manage your content. We're also going to be talking about color extensively, and how you can work with fills and strokes to get the exact color combination that you're looking for a selected piece of artwork. We'll also talk about how you can work with the brushes inside of Illustrator, and the advantages of symbols. We'll also talk about how we can work with images and masks. And in that lesson, we'll talk about some of the live trace options that are available inside of Illustrator. Finally, we'll talk about how we can save, and export, and print our artwork. We'll talk about how you can go about exporting your artwork in different formats like the. tiff format. So we have quite a bit in terms of what we need to cover, so in the next movie, we're going to start off by talking about how we can effectively select content.
