In my opinion the easiest and quickest way would be mesh tool and just some desaturated/pastel colours. First create a mesh'ed object. I already have opened desaturated swatch library (open swatch library > color properties > desaturated). You can also create your own or import one that suits you best. Then, with direct selection tool select some ...

You can do this in Photoshop with custom brush you need to define (rectangle shape) and then play with the settings (remember that "roundness" in this case will be thickness of the shape. This is what you could get. In illustrator the easiest way (for me) would be do create few different patterns, fill objects with them, then expand and multiply and ...

Yes. In photoshop from drop menu choose "save swatches for exchange", choose destination and name. Then in illustrator Open swatch library "other library" and point to *.ase file you created.

Enable the application frame (Window → Application Frame). With the application frame active your whole workspace is treated as one window that you can easily move/resize etc. From Illustrator Help / Workspace basics: The Application frame groups all the workspace elements in a single, integrated window that lets you treat the application as a single ...

You can use the transform effect rather than a regular transform, which will let you set the transform origin from the dialog. Actions won't record effects so you will need to use the Insert Menu Item... option from the Actions panel's dropdown and select the effect. Since the transform is an effect rather than an actual transform you may want to expand ...

It sounds like you enabled outline mode. This is a mode that will break your image/design down to simple black lines, where you can see everything (even if it's behind an object). Commonly referred to as "outline or wireframe". You can toggle this view by pressing CMD + Y(Mac) or CTRL + Y(Windows) or View > Outline in the top application toolbar. This ...

As a quick fix, you can wrap artboards within artboards, take aa look at this example. Here I have a file with 4 artboards (1 hidden off screen that won't be used) I can wrap a larger artboard around these 4, like so: Then when I go to print (cmd + p), I can set the range to only print that final artboard. In my case (6), depending on how close the ...

No. since you have expaned the path there is no easy way. How ever if you had only a single line in the middle then you could just choose to make the like wider.

This library can save various assets but one of them being swatches which you can use on various Adobe programs. The swatches will sync whenever you make a change to the swatch. There are many ways to add swatches to a library. 1) Add assets from the ...

Can you use the Adobe Creative Clouds apps, the desktop version, on an iPad Pro? No, they have separate apps for that. Adobe Comp Like Indesign Adobe Sketch Like Illustrator Adobe Fix Like Photoshop Adobe Mix Like Photoshop Note: You will probably need an Adobe CC subscription to use those apps. Possibly through mirroring the display ( desktop to ...

Basically, no. The other program will not check for updates (and therefore will not update) until it is moved to the foreground. You can rapidly switch back and forth by using alt+tab twice (cmd+tab on Mac) as a fast way to see the changes without having to use the mouse.

As some commenters have pointed out, the "blurriness" you see on the curves are the result of anti-aliasing due to the low resolution in which you are working; there simply aren't enough pixels to the display your logo crisply. Really the only way to help the "blurriness" caused by antialiasing is to increase the pixel dimensions of the logo. If you need it ...

If you are using the logo for print then say it needs to be 5cm wide by 2cm high, be sure to have the export options set to 300dpi (good for print) not 72dpi (good for web, x2 for retina)

Ended up with built-in Illustrator functionality, that is described in details in this video. Have checked, it works.

There are two kinds of anchor points: Corner points (with no handles) and Smooth points (with handles). The handles control the curves and since corner points have no curves they have no handles. You can convert one kind of anchor point to the other in a number of ways: Use the Convert Anchor Point tool (SHIFT+C). With the Pen tool (P) active, Alt+Click ...

It's been a while since I've used CS2, but you should be able to change the setting from within InDesign. When you place the file, check the box at the bottom of the dialog box that says, "Show Import Options." Then under Options > Crop to: > ART.

3 things: First, have you tried using the "Save for Web" interface and selecting "Type Optimized" from the dropdown before exporting? Second, if that doesn't work, make sure your artboard is lined up on whole pixels. Using the artboard tool, select your artboard and look at the info bar to see if the X and Y values are whole numbers (ie, no decimals). ...

If you are confident that you have selected a font that you have installed on the machine, you may have a font style selected that isn't available. For example, I see that the style you have set is "Normal", but it may need to be "Regular". This can happen usually when you switch from one font to another and the assigned style isn't present in the new font.

This is related to DPI settings. I won't be able to solve the issue without knowledge of the specific screenshot software you're using, but the software is assigning a DPI to the clipped image that doesn't match Illustrator's settings. See if the clipping software allows you to configure the DPI and try 72 or 300, depending on the profile you have set in ...

In the Pathfinder palette's options, under Pahthfinder Options, there's a checkmark for an option 'Remove Redundant Points' that does exactly this:

This can be efficiently accomplished using the Transform Palette (found under Window > Transform) Lets say for example I want to move the yellow square to the right of the blue square precisely, in the "X:" field of the transform palette, I see that the current X center of my selected object is "267.13mm." In order to move it exactly 10mm's I can ...
