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 ...

From the menu, choose Object > Transform > Shear or Right Mouse Button/Control-Click (Mac) and choose Transform > Shear. That Should do the trick. You could also go to the Transform Panel in the top right of your screen (Or Window > Transform), like you can see in the following screenshot:

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 ...

Here is my shot I have used Drop Shadow, Inner Shadow, Bevel and Emboss, Gradient Overlay and Satin Screenshots of used effects Drop Shadow : [ Blend_Mode:multiply,100%,#000000 ] [ Angle:120, Global_Light:No ] [ 4px:0%:1px ] [ Contour:Defaults/CoveDeep ] [Noise: 0% ] Inner Shadow : [ ...

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 ...

I found a quickish method! You had almost all of the workflow, and the 'cutout' part that you had, is what I was missing when trying at first. Starting with this image, because I couldn't find the one you're using: The longest part for me was masking out the background. You may also need to add a Black & White adjustment layer after step 2 if you're ...

It's called posterization (as it was a technique to allow for making posters easier via screen printing, block printing, or lithography). The most common ways to achieve it: use the 'posterize' filter in your raster image editor of choice (photoshop, pixelmator, GIMP, etc.) use a vector tracing tool (as previously mentioned)


6

The first image looks like a direct Live Trace in Illustrator. In order to get better results you can boost the contrast of the image before live tracing it and after that as well. This is how the results look like: It's a good idea to clean some important curves and lines, so that they don't look so random.

You might be able to achieve this using filters, but I would actually consider redrawing the photo entirely using Illustrator a similar vector tool. You can do this using the Pen Tool. To make things easier, start by pasting the photo you want to convert, and maybe turning it into B&W and increasing the contrast. That will give you a nice base to work ...

If you can change the HTML/markup: just add a class to those two particular elements and style that. If you can't: Use nth-child or preferably nth-last-child(n). The latter will count backwards from the last child-element instead of forwards from the first. The code below would select the last two li elements in a ul container with the class main-nav ...

I've managed to achieve what you're after. First off though, your code was very messy and in future you should prune/clean it before asking others to help you fix it. I took a 15 minute look at your code to understand it, and then rewrote the parts you're asking about with much less mess. This is what I get with the structure I've prepared for you: The ...

Open the Glyphs panel (Text → Glyphs). Select a text element. Click on the glyph you want, and click the Append button in the bottom-right. If you want it in your clipboard, double-click the glyph to add it to the text-field in the bottom left of the panel—you can copy it from there.

As far as I know, you can't. The method suggested by Joonas and elaborated by Rachuru is a good option for many cases. When that isn't suitable, here's another option you can try. Not the ideal solution you're asking for, but an option that can help in situations where you have up to 60 layers in Illustrator or maybe 40 in Photoshop - any more and it'd ...

I think it is not possible what exactly you want—scroll with the mousewheel while grabbing something. You can use these methods for some convience, as @Joonas mentioned in the comments Using the Arrange command. If you’ve got one or more layers activated, you can choose Layer > Arrange to move them somewhere else in the layer stack. Depending on ...

All you need to do is choose Image > Adjustments > Levels and alter the levels within the image. Simply drag the left triangle (black) to the right to darken the dark areas and then drag the right (white) arrow to the left to lighten the lighter areas on the image. Viewing the histogram will help. It shows the ramp on the right which is all the ...

Referring to align to key object: to determine the key object, select the first object, and then, while pressing the select button, selecting the second one, it will declare the first object as the key object, as referred to above. If you don't do this and select the 2 objects at the same time, it will not give you the option align to key object but align to ...

The Revert function in Illustrator takes you back to your last Save. If you saved over your working copy AND your back-up copy, then the only option is to find an older file that existed before you made the changes. If you do regular back-ups or use backup software, you'll have to go back to that. On the Mac if you have Time Machine running, you can go back ...

If you've closed the file then you can't. Otherwise you can try to Undo (Ctrl+Z ) until it is at the point you want, then Save it how you originally intended to. There is no History as there is in Photoshop, but the Undo is vastly more powerful than a single step-back. You could also Revert to get to your last save, again if you didn't close the file. In ...

You need better edges. In Adobe Illustrator it is called Image Trace and will allow you to reduce the numbers of colors in the image for the purpose of defining better edges for the wand tool to use. Depending on what your doing you may want to do some hand touch up of the edges.

Seeing as this post is like a list of font-creation software, I'd like to add another for everyone to consider. I recently came across it on Kickstarter, and whilst I haven't tried it, it looks quite promising. It's called Prototypo. It's a brand new alternative, and it's crowdfunded! Definitely worth considering in future, though it's currently in ...

To change the font style of all text layers, you can filter all Type Layers with Layer Filrering option (CS6+). You find it on the top of Layers panel - [T] icon. Than just select all Layers that left in Layers panel and change font as you wish. Don't forget to turn of filtering when you're done - click on the red toggle button next to filters.

You need to: start w/ a .pdf which has the characters encoded using Unicode (check document properties) have the font in InDesign set to one which has those characters at the same Unicode slots Then it'll ``just work''.

I should first explain that extracting the pattern from one photograph of a tie and painting it seamlessly onto another photo of a tie that's in a different position, is a very difficult task. Even an experienced designer would probably not attempt this in the way you're suggesting. If anything, they'd probably redraw a template tie, then redraw each ...

I give you another answer, but there are a lot of options. Create a circle (Elliple tool->Shift+Click+Drag) and make desired stroke (i.e. 23 points) Next, press Object->Expand Next grab Type tool and type "+", then press Object->expand and resize and locate the cross along the circle. Then select all the shapes and press Minus front on pathfinder ...

Create the circle shape. Remove the fill. Give it a stroke that is as thick as the width you want. Go to Object → Expand.. in the top horizontal menu. Create a rectangle that's as thick as you want the gaps to be. While you still have the rectangle selected, hold Shift and select the circle. Use the alignment options to center it horizontally and ...

You can do it also with the scissors tool. Invoke it from the tools panel or just by pressing 'C'. With it you can click any path or shape and Illustrator will split it in two as you would do with your scissors. One good option to do that would be to draw the circle, divide with the scissors on top of the four anchor points to create the four quarters and ...

If you want extremely fast solution, grab Ellipse tool and select options as on the picture: If you want perfect solution you should use Pathfinder panel cutting the circle with a cross.

The way I do this is: 1- convert first the object to symbol 2- Center de object where you want, if you want align the symbol with your reference object, it mean the pivots are coincident now. 3-double click in the symbol to enter in edit mode 4-Change the position of your symbol where you want. 5-Exit edit mode and, you should have the pivot of your symbol ...

One way that might work for you is to temporarily disable/uninstall the old font from your system and then use the "Replace all missing fonts" feature under the "Type" menu. It's not the prettiest way to do it, that would probably require scripting, but it should work fine in your case.

First check all the fonts are in same format. If so take layer style or press F7. click on the top most layer and pressing shift click the last layer too. Now you have selected all layers. Then from window-->character if the same is not at on. there you have an option of choosing font. there you go. you can select whichever font style you want. It will apply ...

The dimensions are variable. User Joojaa is correct when they say that "You can no way know what size or shape the recipients screen is going to be." You cannot set any explicit value in your CSS, because if you want to consistently support all browsers, you have no way of knowing what size it's going to be. I'm going to give you one method, using just ...

What do you mean by "it does not scroll vertically"? That you do not want it to scroll vertically, or that for some reason it is "fixed"? There is no such thing as guidelines for web page withs and heights anymore. As user2725502 and Joojaa points out: the massive variety of devices makes this wildly impractical if not directly impossible to do sensibly. ...

I am totally late with this but someone else might find this useful. It's a little convoluted but here is how I do it in X4.

Move the rectangle behind your icon if you ...
