Beginning with a review of important functions and tools, demonstrations and in-class projects present more advanced topics including transparency, feathering, masking, compound paths, gradients, layering techniques, and the specifics of the pen tool. Attention will be given to exporting files to other applications and platforms including, Adobe Photoshop and InDesign and the web.
