I was going to write this as a comment, but it got a bit too long. This is something that I'm always thinking when I see questions like this. Don't ask broad questions like this. Analyze the image and divide it into smaller tasks/questions. Rather than start with: "How can I make this {complex-example}?", start by breaking it down into specifics. ...

That's not so much a transformation as it is a distortion. Transforming alters the entire shape, whereas distortion only alters a portion of the shape. All "transform" operations tend to alter everything at least to some minor degree. If you want the second example just draw an angled shape above the rectangles and use the Pathfinder Panel to subtract the ...

When you Unite multiple shapes they become one shape. All the individual fills are ignored and a single fill is applied to the united object. That gradient you have can't be accomplished on a single shape as a fill, other than using a gradient mesh. But when using the Unite command, meshes aren't generated for you. A better option may be using a stroke ...

Once two unconnected pages are in the same file, you can connect them the same way you have with the pages that were already there. Click the text thread square in the bottom-right of the page (just above the bottom-right corner) and then click on the frame you'd like to connect.

This all depends a bit on your base understanding of how ...

Ok and oldie but goodie question; here I go: Some definitions/aclarations: 1) Quality is a process, is taking care on each step of it. In a case of resampling an image there is no "quality" loss, (except if you make mermelade of your own photo, probably compressing it like hell) What you have is information loss when you downsample it. You have a ...

DPI setting in this case has no meaning. Graphics produced for web or pixel based media do not have a dpi resolution. But if you want one illustrator pixel to be one point your dpi settimg has to be 72 simply because 1 point is assumed to be one pixel. One point equals to one 1/72th of an inch so if you really put 150 in your dialog that would explain why ...

Try the following: Add a new blank layer at the top Fill it with white Lower its opacity to yield the flared look on the side you want, say on the left like this, ignore what happens on the rest Add a layer mask, fill it with gradient fill from black to white starting where you want the effect to start diminishing See the images below which show before, ...
