Illustrator is the application you use to make objects for Photoshop and Flash. As a vector-based drawing application, Illustrator is a powerful tool for creating graphical objects, but it can be a bit confusing at the beginning - especially if you've never created vector graphics before.

In this 5-hour tutorial by seasoned technical author Kelly Murdock, you'll learn valuable tricks for working with vector art. Skills demonstrated in this Illustrator CS4 tutorial include how to use Illustrator's tools to draw objects and edit vector paths, grouping and organizing objects on layers, and working with Type to create text along paths and shapes. You'll also learn important tips for anti-aliasing vector graphics, working with color and gradients, and transforming objects to make intricate works of art.
