  • 1Description

Combining a DVD-ROM with 12 hours 58 minutes of video and a 48-page full-color printing reference guide, the Adobe Illustrator CS6: Learn by Video published by Peachpit Press and released by Pearson Education is designed to teach users the fundamentals of Illustrator CS6. Put together by Adobe Press and video2brain and instructed by Chad Chelius and Angie Taylor who provide lessons on numerous aspects of the software. The video is wrapped in a unique interface that allows the viewer to jump to any topic and also bookmark individual sections for later review. The unique Watch-and-Work mode shrinks the video into a small window to allow the student to work alongside in Illustrator. Project files used in the lessons are included on the disc so viewers can practice what they learn, and interactive review questions help reinforce freshly gained knowledge.
