In Illustrator CS6 Video QuickStart Guide from Class on Demand, instructors Elaine Weinmann & Peter Lourekas offer just what you need if you're new to the software or would like to learn the new features of CS6. Adobe Illustrator is an essential tool for anyone who designs and creates artwork for use across different media, from print to web. Illustrator CS6 offers a robust array of tools for creating, adjusting, and manipulating your graphics; and one of the most challenging parts of using Illustrator can be figuring out where to start.

These short, engaging lessons show the program's key features and tools in action, with clear demonstrations and tips on how to use each feature, from creating multiple artboards to printing or posting your final work. Along the way, the instructors cover Illustrator fundamentals such as selecting objects, creating patterns and shapes, applying colors and gradients, working with layers, placing text, tracing images, and how to use Live Paint. Additional instruction covers turning images into vector artwork, how to print illustrator files or save them for use in other applications.
