Description:If you’re planning a career as a graphic artist, you need to master Adobe Illustrator CS5—and this course will give you the skills you need to use this powerful software tool with confidence. You’ll learn how to create infinitely resizable vector images and add stunning effects using blends, brushstrokes, and shading techniques. You’ll also find out how to move images between Photoshop and Illustrator, so you can take advantage of the strengths of both programs. You’ll become skilled in using the Recolor Artwork and Gradient tools, and you’ll learn how to draw and trace with the Pen tool. In addition, you’ll discover how to work with color, use shortcuts for applying color to images, and add special effects such as 3D to your drawings. Whether you’re a beginner or want to enhance your existing Illustrator skills, this is the course for you! Requirements: You will need Adobe Illustrator CS5 (Windows or Macintosh). Software must be installed and fully operational before the course begins. You will need Windows 7, Vista, or XP, or Mac OSX. In addition, you will need Internet access, email, the Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox Web browser, and the Adobe Flash and PDF plug-ins (two free and simple downloads you obtain at http://www.adobe.com/downloads by clicking Get Adobe Flash Player and Get Adobe Reader). Artistic ability is not required—just a desire to be creative. You should be familiar with your computer and know how to create and save files, how to make new folders on your hard drive, and how to download files from the Internet.
