lynda.com, the leader in self-paced digital media and design training, today introduced Illustrator CS3 One-on-One: The Essentials.
Adobe Illustrator has long been the most popular and viable vector-drawing program on the market but, for many, the learning curve is steep. In Illustrator CS3 One-on-One: The Essentials, author and leading industry expert Deke McClelland teaches the key features of Illustrator in a way that anyone can understand. He also goes beyond that, showing users how to get into the Illustrator mindset to make mastering Illustrator simple and easy. The training covers how to use the core drawing and shape tools, the transformation and reshaping features, text and gradients, and color management and printing features. Even if learning Illustrator has been a struggle in the past, this time it is going to make sense.
"Deke McClelland’s knowledge of Illustrator is unsurpassed. However, his bigger gift is his ability to explain difficult concepts in a compelling and understandable manner. Learning Illustrator is key for anyone who wants to leverage the wonderful power and scalability of vector images — for print, web, or video," says Lynda Weinman, CEO of lynda.com.
