Discover some of Illustrator’s more advanced capabilities for creating even more sophisticated and striking results. You’ll learn to create custom shapes and “compound paths” using simple shapes as a starting point, to create perspective drawings using Illustrator’s Perspective Grid tool, and to use Illustrator's newly enhanced "image trace" feature to convert (simple) photographs into fully-scalable Illustrator paths. You'll also work with colors, swatches, Pantone libraries, and color groups, create custom brushes, and use Illustrator's "Live Paint" feature, as well as painting objects with fills, strokes, and gradients. Other topics include advanced type formatting options, applying meshes, patterns, transparency, and blending modes to objects, as well as working with graphics styles and effects, masks, symbol sets, symbolism tools, and more.
