Product Description

Product Description

Creative professionals seeking the fastest, easiest, most comprehensive way to learn Adobe Illustrator CS6 choose Adobe Illustrator CS6 Classroom in a Book from the Adobe Creative Team at Adobe Press. The 15 project-based lessons in this book show readers step-by-step the key techniques for working in Illustrator CS6 and how to create vector artwork for virtually any project and across multiple media: print, websites, interactive projects, and video.
In addition to learning the key elements of the Illustrator interface, this completely revised CS6 edition covers the new tracing engine with improved shape and color recognition, a new pattern toolset with on-artboard controls and one-click tiling, a completely overhauled performance engine and modernized user interface for working more efficiently and intuitively, and more.

**Breaking News! In August 2012 Adobe released an update to Illustrator offering new features for Creative Cloud customers: Package files, Unembed images and Links panel enhancements.

5.0 out of 5 stars Training files... 30 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The training file download location is easily found close to the end of the ebook.

The book rated on a scale of 1 to 5 is at least a six. Excellent, well written and easy to understand.

Easy that is for people who read it properly and not those who ignore simple instructions such as where to download the training files and then write totally ignorant reviews...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for a beginner who hates Ilustrator. 15 Jan 2014
By lecole
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have to be honest - I hate Illustrator. But I think it is mainly down to the fact that I grew up studying and working in Photoshop (and the free download of PhotoFiltre). I had to work out Illustrator as I am studying web design at college, even though we can use other elements we were asked to produce various things in Illustrator, so willingly I ran towards Amazon to find a book that would teach someone who has no idea what they are doing, and transform them into a magician at Illustrator.

After a few reads I managed to create various things, it was helpful. I have managed to swiftly drop Illustrator and run in the opposite direction to my friend Photoshop, but I know when the time comes (oh and it will come) - that this book on my shelf will get me there.

Although many tutorial exercises can be found on the internet for the adobe products such as illustrator few offer such precision and detail. There is little more frustrating that following a tutorial for a while only to realise an inadequate description have been used for the next step, or that the instructions are half missing meaning you can't reach the end. It's by the people that made the software - they know illustrator inside out and are good at sharing that knowledge. There are helpful hints and if you actually read the book you'll see you can download the exercise files from the link in the book. The exercise files are brilliant and take you through the tools in great detail. Simple and Effective.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Version 5 Nov 2012
By Kipz
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Being a non-professional person who has basic previous experience, I bought this book as a way to broaden my knowledge of Illustrator mainly for hobby purposes but with a view to possibly doing some future web based design work for friends or family.

Currently about 3 or 4 chapters into this book and so far so good. I bought the kindle version so as you can imagine the clarity of some of the images is less than you would expect from a paper book, however the instructions and downloadable content are easy to follow.

Looking forward to working through the projects and possibly looking at more books in the range for other Adobe software such as Photoshop.
