I am using AI, and I have a vector image where I have over 25 different masks. When I select a shape, and try to change the color, only the border of that specific changes color but the inside stays the same. You can see this effect on top left most leaf, yellow inside, and green tiny border. I am trying to change the inside to green. If the border changes color, and I try clicking other places, the entire image gets covered with the original color (meaning the mask isn't working? or the mask is covering everything up the the clear mask is taking on the original color?). I purchased the stock vector on a site and am trying to change colors to match my company logo. I need to then change each of the shapes colors and add slight gradients, such as the image already exhibits in various shapes.
If anyone can help me I would be so grateful. I would be willing to Skype or email with anyone if they can help or if they can be detailed enough on this forum maybe I can figure it out. I am a beginner AI user.
