Lynda - Illustrator CC 2017 One-on-One: Advanced 2017 TUTORiAL | 3.17 GB

Learn how to be the best Adobe Illustrator user you know. This comprehensive, project-based course is the second in a series of three courses by industry pro Deke McClelland. In this course, Deke doesn't just talk about how to leverage different Illustrator features-he ties each concept to a clearly-defined task, ensuring that you close out each section of the course with a practical understanding of the concepts.

Discover how to convert scanned line art to scalable, vector-based path outlines using the automated Image Trace feature. Plus, learn how to make a logo using the transformation tools, create an emoji with the Gradient tool, and turn a simple circle into an intricate origami flower with the program's dynamic effects.
