Adobe Illustrator Advanced training course

Adobe Illustrator create vector graphics, which are composed of lines and curves defined by mathematical objects called “vectors.” Vectors describe a graphic according to its geometric characteristics. For example, a bicycle tire in a vector graphic is drawn using a mathematical equation for a circle with a certain radius, set at a specific location, and filled with a specific color. You can move, resize, or change the color of the tire without losing graphic quality because the underlying equations will compensate for your actions.

What you learned Samples

What you learned: Add images

  • In Illustrator, you can bring raster images — such as those taken with your phone — into your projects.
  • Choose File > Place to place an image into your document. In the Place dialog box, selecting the Link option creates a link to the original image. If the image is updated outside Illustrator, the image will be updated in your Illustrator document automatically. Deselecting the Link option when placing an image embeds the image in the Illustrator document.
  • Select the Selection tool in the Tools panel and Shift-drag a corner to resize the image. When finished, release the mouse button and then the Shift key.
  • Click the Crop Image button in the Properties panel on the right side of the document to crop parts of an image. Drag any handle around the image to remove an unwanted portion. Click Apply in the Properties panel.

What you learned: About effects
