Adobe Illustrator CS6: Part 1

Homes / Services / Training / Adobe Illustrator CS6: Part 1

Summary

This course focuses on Illustrator CS6, the component within CS6 used to create “drawn” graphics, while enabling its users to integrate content from other domains (such as photo-oriented graphics and animation, which belong to Photoshop® and Flash®). With Illustrator’s many, easily used tools, you will discover that not only can you unlock the same creative impulses you’ve always had as you’ve picked up a pencil to sketch out an idea, but also capture those multiple ideas and “what ifs” during the creative process in ways that you never imagined. And for those of you who are just embarking on building your creative skills, you will be surprised at “how good” your work will appear even at the outset of your exploration of the world of graphic design.

This course also is designed to cover the Illustrator CS6 Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) certification exam objectives.
