Discover how to use Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator as a powerful combination to save time, simplify workflow, and create stunning work.
Discover the value and benefits of using native file formats in any application to simplify roundtrips, and learn how to speed up production workflows with techniques such as snippets, layers, compositions, and more. This course also covers importing and exporting, placing files, working with artboards, embedding files, linking files, and sharing files between applications. Learn how to create vector-based artwork from pixel-based sources, including photographs, and leverage Illustrator symbols and Photoshop shapes in your designs. Nigel also covers a variety of pattern and texture techniques, before proceeding into four hands-on projects—an animated pattern, a Mondrian-style composition, a vintage postcard, and a retro poster— that demonstrate the complete workflow between these two powerful programs.
