Look at what you have. Circle divided in 6 pieces. divide circle into 6 pieces for starter. It is symmetrical by rotation. Draw one piece and copy. the triangle is pointing one side horizontally. This is what you get: Image 1: how i would do it draw circle (mark center out with guides) Draw line at 80 degrees trim lines with shape builder rotate back ...

A quick method to add banding is reducing the color depth of an image. When choosing an optimized palette for indexed output banding will be introduced at the color steps needed to reproduce the true color RGB source. Examples: RGB source Indexed to 64 colors optimized palette:

There's no gradient anywhere in that image. It is merely a line pattern. You can achieve this by drawing 3 lines of varying thickness. Select all 3 and choose Object > Blend > Make You may need to then choose Object > Blend > Blend Options to adjust the blend.

I have read all valuable answers my answer would be easier - I think Draw the basic shapes and they are a circle and hexagone Align them to the center now break each anchor in the hexagon shape by selecting with the white arroe each anchor and click over cut path at selected anchor points select two by two because if select it all the cut path command ...

Removing one side of the shape might be a workaround, BUT! You won't be able to align the stroke to inside or outside, it will always be central A better solution would be expanding the stroke (in case you need an inside or outside alignment for it)

Yes there is. Obscure question but I was till able to google it. Here is how you do it. If your path is open: Select the pen tool (P) Click the last anchor of the path. The order will be reversed If your path is closed: If the path is a compound path, skip to step 4 Select the path with the Selection Tool (black arrow, V) Click on ...

I think it's a matter of personal choice when a relatively inexperienced user goes thorough the selection thing. When I had first started designing, I did everything in Adobe Photoshop and I was happy with the result. I did everything from print media to web interfaces and there wasn't a single complaint from clients' side. It was only when I came to know ...

While there may be hope for the future as modern operating systems develop support for full color fonts, what you would like to do is not currently possible in Photoshop. Only monochrome fonts can be used. The Apple Color Emoji font is a "special" type of font; glyphs are stored as PNGs rather than vector icons. At this point, the best you'll be able to do ...

I've noticed that in fact the Shape Builder has this side effect that does what you ask. When you select curves for shape building, Adobe temporarily intersects all curves that participate in the deletion. Once you commit a shape build, this 'temporary' becomes in fact fixed. How to use? Continue the curve you want to do this; draw a line to block the ...

This doesn't explain why it's occurring but the following two workarounds helped to some degree, but neither are ideal: • Save .ai as an EPS (although then there was white outlines around things like a low resolution/transparency flattening type effect) • Save .ai as a high resolution JPEG

You can dynamically load text into Illustrator using an XML file. Using the Variables panel, you can import an XML file and use that to control the existence of objects, what images appear in linked image containers, and what text appears in a text frame. You can also control the data that appears in a graph. The typical workflow is to create a ...

Create a scatter brush of a small black circle with random size and spacing. Also set the scatter to random, but make sure your seed values are 100% or greater. Here's what I get as a result of tweaking the scatter brush settings: You can then expand the brush and delete any of the dots you don't like (like the one's inside the "K," for example. (edit: ...

To have the brush automatically load without having to import a new library every time, in Illustrator CC 2014: 1) In Illustrator, apply the brush to a path, then copy the object to the pasteboard (effectively copying the brush as well) 2) Go to your "New Document Profiles" folder(for me it's: C:\Users\[yourusername]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator ...

My method: 1) Create a pattern brush using grey for the inner sections, but with bright red end caps for the beginning and end sections. 2) Apply the brush to the artwork to identify the open paths. 3) Undo the apply, then fix the path. I hope this helps.

Naty's answer is close but since you're looking for the "correct distortion of a cylinder", you should use an actual cylinder. Illustrator has very limited (and sometimes buggy) 3D tools available, but this is a case where it has just what you need. In short, you should 3D extrude a circle and map the text around the cylinder that is created. To do this: ...

You are assuming that the client has illustrator and understands how to use it. It depends on what the files are used for, too. If I was sending a PDF to a printer, I leave it editable, in case the printer needs to adjust something before running the job. If you are really concerned about your client adjusting your files afterwards, you can send as EPS, or ...

Lack of color management does not mean the image is not managed. No color management means the image is set to sRGB*. It would be MUCH better to color manage it with your systems settings or set to sRGB. You'd get the same result and it would actually mean something to other devices (that now will proceed thinking it is sRGB and color manage accordingly) ...

When creating new Illustrator documents and targeting devices, create them with sRGB color space. For further understanding about color spaces, see e.g. here: https://fstoppers.com/pictures/adobergb-vs-srgb-3167 Assuming you already have an Illustrator document with no color management, add it: Under Edit/Color Settings, select Europe Web/Internet. This ...

When you send a PDF of your Illustrator file, make sure that the option to keep it editable is deactivated (by default, Illustrator adds the .ai information to the PDF, so that you can open it again and it works properly). If the purpose of sending the file to the client is to get comments or/and approval, you might also simply rasterize it (for example ...

Use the Direct Selection tool (shortcut A) and then delete. Or the vector is either masked or grouped and you can right-click on the vector and either release or ungroup. If you do that enough you can select the background and then delete.

It would be helpful to see exactly what you mean, but with the information you have provided, it sounds like you are creating a large number of paths, which could be slowing the program down. If these lines are stroked, and you want to scale them properly without having them keep a static width, go into your settings, and check the box that says "scale ...
