Description

In series of lessons, we will focus on an introduction to Illustrator CS5. We'll get started by learning some of the basics, such as creating and opening files, understanding and customizing the interface, and working with tools such as rulers and guides. We'll move on and learn about what Illustrator calls an object, and we'll also learn some tools for creating and modifying these objects. Once we've mastered creating and modifying objects, we'll learn how to manage objects using groups and layers. Next, we'll begin looking at ways to create more advanced objects by building on the knowledge we already have. We'll also learn about how Illustrator handles color and type. Along the way we'll learn about some of the new tools and features included with Illustrator CS5. Finally, we'll wrap things up by learning how to save and export our artwork out of Illustrator. Software required: Illustrator CS5.
