In Getting Started With Illustrator CC, award-winning veteran trainer Geoff Blake walks you through the fundamentals of Adobe's flagship vector graphics editor. You'll start with the basics: Understanding vector artwork and how it differs from raster images, and how to navigate through and customize Illustrator's interface. Then, it's on to making precise, masterful selections with Illustrator's variety of commands and tools. Next, you'll create and manage your own vector artwork, and learn how to scale, align, and adjust your objects with ease. Typography, including handing text objects and create text along a path comes next, followed by more advanced Illustrator techniques like special effects, Pathfinders, and exporting your work into a variety of file formats. All this and more awaits in Getting Started With Illustrator CC!
