Abode Illustrator CS3 For The Web CD-Rom

CD-Rom and Case VG++

It might seem counterintuitive to consider using Illustrator, the preeminent vector-based print design tool, for creating pixel-based graphics, but that's exactly what Mordy Golding does in Illustrator CS3 for the Web. He focuses on Illustrator's strengths alongside other tools in the web design workflow, exploring unique features such as object-based editing, and the ease of repurposing art for print and Flash use. This course requires familiarity with Illustrator CS3, and while it provides an introduction to Flash integration, the focus is on effectively turning vectors into pixels, whether for the web, mobile devices, or video. Exercise files accompany the course.

Topics Include:

  • Managing anti-aliasing and color
  • Working with the layout grid, text, and reflections
  • Slicing images and defining image maps
  • Optimizing graphics for the web and devices
  • Creating simple animations and exporting to SWF
  • Moving content to Photoshop, Acrobat, Flash, and Dreamweaver
