Essential Tips and Tools in Adobe Illustrator®

Learn helpful techniques and shortcuts that will contribute to a quicker, more efficient workflow.

Adobe Illustrator is the industry standard for graphics, design, and typography. As with other Adobe Creative Cloud software packages, it is readily available to anyone and easily operated on most computers today. But as a professional-level program, it was created for designers and others trained in its use. However, many in today's offices and other workplaces have the opportunity and need to use it in marketing and promoting their businesses. This topic will explain Illustrator's commonly used tools at a level the casual user can understand. The material will also show best practices to working with graphic files and preparing them for print, web, and other uses. Helpful techniques and shortcuts will be covered that will contribute to a quicker, more efficient workflow. Integrating various tools and demonstrating how they relate to each other and their use for common projects will also be covered. Time will be given to answering questions and particular issues participants wish to discuss.
