"I can't figure out how to equalize the first image so it plays perfectly with the second." Thats because you can't. You've lost WAY too much out the windows as they are overexposed in the photo you are trying to fix. The girls shoulder is completely gone in the water reflections, all white pixels - it's a mistake photo. However if you took the picture or ...

Illustrator does not really excel at this sort of operation. This is why I linked to Excentro in the comment above. Excentro is specifically designed to create guilloch├ęs and it's artwork is exportable (as vector) to Illustrator. Of course, I realize Excentro is an extra cost. The ways I can think to try and pull it off with only Illustrator include: ...

Building on what GoofyMonkey suggests: Release the opacity mask. Cut it. Group the underlying objects or combine then using the pathfinder tool that unites areas. Paste the object that was formerly the opacity mask back into the composition. Use Paste in Front to ensure it's on top of your other objects and in the same position. Use the pathfinder on the 2 ...

Following on from your (most excellent) set up: 5) Create a new character style, name it "non-italic" and set it's font style accordingly ("Regular" works in this example). 6) Bring up Find/Change, but leave the "Find what" and "Change to" fields blank. Beneath those fields you'll see Find Format. Specify Character Style as "italic" and Paragraph Style as ...

Ok, here is how you do this. Prepare your image layers and all. Im going to be using a very simple image with colored squares. Image 1: Original setup with simple shapes, this would work with any layered source however. Select ALL your layers you intend to stack up, into isometric or perspective. I will be transforming to isometric [1]. Scale down ...

Well I have posted a script that could be easily repurposed for this function: #target illustrator // Cycle between layervisibility A - B - None - around // CC BY SA Janne Ojala 2014 layers = app.activeDocument.layers layer_a = layers.getByName("A") // insert layer names here layer_b = layers.getByName("B") if (! layer_a.visible && ! ...

You could script this. The center of a triangle is the barycentric coordinate, which is just the vector average. So: #target illustrator // CC BY SA Janne Ojala 2014 function rotate_around_vertex_average(obj, ang) { var points = obj.pathPoints; var x = 0; var y = 0; for(var i=0; i < points.length; i++){ point = points[i]; ...

Here's my take using the Bevel and Extrude tool (Effect > 3D > Bevel and Extrude) Sorry for the French text but everything is in the same place so you should be able to figure it out. The best part to this method is that everything stays editable and there aren't too many extra steps. You want your letter to still look flat so put all the rotation ...

Use variables within Illustrator. Variables are designed so that you create a basic layout and designate what text is to be changed with each instance. You then link to an external document containing that list of items to use in the steps, in your case the CSV file. Here's a link to the Adobe Help Files explaining the use of variables within Illustrator: ...

Object > Transform > [the transformation you want] and uncheck "Transform Object". This will cause "Transform Pattern" to auto-check, thus transforming the pattern but not the object. Simply enter a value and click OK. Additionally, if you hold the ~ (tilde) key down while using a transform tool such as the Scale Tool, Rotate Tool, etc. It will cause ...

One permanent way is to invoke Pattern Options and rotate the objects inside -> Duplicating and Saving and Re-applying the new pattern to the object. (wrong part of the answer was removed)

I believe bmp only supports 8 bit RGB (24bit images) Things can get confusing when dealing with the word "bit" at times. By Adobe definitions..... 8 bit RGB = 24bit image (8 bits R, 8 bits G, 8 bits B = 24). 16 bit RGB = 48bit image (16 bits R, 16 bits G, 16 bits B = 48). Using these numbers, standard RGB images are referred to as 8 or 24 bit. 16 bit ...

I want you to know about some trick which probably will help you subtract the brush equal shapes from other shapes. Let's say you have a circle and some brush: You want to subtract from the circle the shape equal to this triangular brush. For that, you Click-and-Drug this brush to any free-of-objects area on your artboard or outside it - you will get ...

Right click the Layer you want to copy styles from, and choose Copy Shape Attributes. Right click the Layer you want to paste the styles on, and choose Paste Shape Attributes.

Well, you're on the right track. The key is to use layer styles. Here's my shot: Settings: Add Bevel & Emboss. Choose "Chisel Hard" under technique, play around with the settings and use the "Cove - Deep" preset under Contour. Add a dark grey to bright white linear Gradient Overlay. Angle it and limit it so that it begins with the white in ...
