The tight integration between the elements of Adobe Creative Suite 6 makes it easier than ever to create professional designs. This book provides a solid foundation in the three most popular software applications – Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. The ten projects in this book were designed to represent the range of jobs likely to be encountered during your professional career in graphic design. The step-by-step exercises are intended to simulate a realistic workflow while you learn to:

  • Customize workspace settings to enhance your productivity for any job specifications.
  • Define appropriate file dimensions, resolution, and compression settings for a variety of file types.
  • Use Photoshop’s improved controls for correcting colors, adjusting lighting, and repairing other types of visual damage in your images.
  • Use Illustrator’s enhanced toolset to combine, edit, and transform primitive shapes to create complex vector-based illustrations.
  • Composite and manipulate raster images, vector objects, and text elements to develop unified, cohesive designs that incorporate unique, eye-catching, colorful effects.
  • Create artistic effects using a variety of filters, adjustments, brushes, and patterns – all of which are even more powerful and easier to use in the CS6 package.
  • Save files with appropriate settings and formats for various distribution methods, including electronic publications.
