Adobe Illustrator Tips #3

Wednesday, September 2, 2009

In Adobe Illustrator you can work with Vector Objects. Three advantages of working with Vector Objects are these:

1. You can copy your object as many times as you want so that you don't have to redraw the same picture over and over. The pictures above were created using one flower copied over and over until the picture was filled with flowers.

2. You can resize your objects without losing any quality. For example: I started with a small flower, copied that flower and made it bigger. The large flowers look just as clear as the small ones because they are Vector Objects.

3. You can change the color of your objects at any time. The top left picture is what I created first. Then I changed the color of each individual flower to create the other three pictures you see here.
