Promotional Information

With a slew of new features and tighter-than-ever integration with the rest of Adobe's design, graphics, and publishing tools (all of which are now in perfect sync as part of Adobe's Creative Suite), Illustrator CS ($499; upgrade, $169) promises to make designers' lives a whole lot easier-especially if they have this task-based guide! As the standard Illustrator text in many design schools, this popular guide has taught a generation of users how to make the most out of Adobe's graphics powerhouse. Now the Visual QuickStart Guide is back revised and updated-to teach the next generation. Using simple step-by-step instructions, loads of screen shots, and an array of time-saving tips and tricks, this volume represents the quickest route to Illustrator CS proficiency. Clearly marked locators to new and improved features (such as a the Scribble Effect, enhanced type capabilities, hundreds of professionally designed templates, enhanced PDF support, and more), a full-color section of inspiring Illustrator artwork, and highly readable text create a winning combination for every level of Illustrator user.
