Adobe Illustrator Classes


 

Adobe Illustrator is the vector drawing program in the Adobe Creative Suite. One of the big advantages of a vector program is that its elements are scalable without the loss of resolution, unlike bitmap images that store information in a grid of dots. So your graphic will look great on a business card, and just as crisp and clean wrapped around a bus.

Illustrator is a program full of different types of drawing tools, brushes and many illustration time-savers. Use Illustrator to create: logos, icons, infographics, social media ads and campaigns, illustrations, mobile app design, product packaging, maps, patterns, fashion design, flyers, animation frames, ads, technical and medical illustration and much, much more.

Illustrator integrates seamlessly with the other Adobe Creative Suite programs: with Adobe InDesign for print production, digital and print magazines; with Adobe Photoshop for integration of vector Smart Objects; with Adobe Acrobat for interactive PDF capabilities; and with Adobe Premiere, After Effects and Flash for web and video animations and title sequences. Plus Illustrator is great for creating assets for Powerpoint presentations.
