I'm really not clear about what it is you're asking and the video link doesn't really aid in explaining either. You can hold the Command (Mac) or the Ctrl (Win) to temporarily access the last Selection Tool used. I suspect what you are seeing is work with the pen tool, hold down the key above and use the Direct Selection Tool to move something, then let ...

Assuming that you are starting from two paths, one filled in cyan without stroke paint and the other with a black stroke and without fill; and assuming that the filled path is at the bottom, we have a similar situation: You have to perform a few simple steps: Select and duplicate the path with the black stroke while pressing Ctrl-D Maintaining ...

It sounds as if you want to do the following: Duplicate your black path. Select your black path and your cloud. Path → Intersection.

I had the same problem. I used Object > Flatten Transparency (with the art selected) and it fixed it. Why? I have no idea but it did work, even though there was no transparency applied to the art that I know of.

Don't send Photoshop to do a vector or page layout job. Turn it around. Export the .psd to a .eps and place that in Illustrator, then import the logo (or paste it). Even better, place the .psd into InDesign, then import the Illustrator .ai logo, then export to a .pdf. Best — rebuild the layout in InDesign.

So, I noticed the "SEARCH" option in the Shapes pane. Searching for "arc", I found a few possible methods for achieving what I was looking for, for answering question #1. Specifically, the Arc - graphical, Arc - numeric and Arc: 3pt.. I could not find a predefined pincushion shape.

Simple Subtract and Union with multiple ovals... Draw 2 ovals. Subtract the top one from the bottom one. Draw a small oval near the top of the half moon, make sure it overlaps the edges of the half moon, duplicate this smaller oval (you will need the 2nd one later). Subtract one of the small ovals from the half moon. Select the half moon and hit Layers / ...

Without seeing the actual logo it's not possible to give a definitive answer to this, but importing it as a Shape Layer or vector paths would be the best way to do it if it's a simple logo, because your PSD would then contain live vector shapes that would output cleanly to PDF. When you import a vector logo (or any other vector) as a Smart Object, Photoshop ...

I would say use a smart object, however you could try doing 'save for web'as a PNG. This gives you more options than the default export, such as image scaling and the type of smoothing applied (none, art or text optimized smoothing). for best quality probably use 'art' smoothing and a large image scaling for best resolution (it should say the pixel ...

Great topic.. As you have already read from many of the followers regarding the alternatives. And these are only the best ones. My suggestion would be to do a research to see which one you find better. Every software whether its paid or open source have pros and cons. I am professional vector artist and have worked with many alternatives and have ...

I can think only few reasons why you can't select objects in AI. Check Layers, maybe some layers are locked. Also go to OBJECT > UNLOCK ALL (Alt+Ctrl+2) Check object grouping (maybe it is inside another group) Transparency mask

It turns out that the object had a transparency mask (which I have never seen before) on it. Releasing this mask made the internal profiles accessible as I had planned.

Two options: You use Illustrators basic Drawing Tools to trace the Images. Like that you get a redrawn vector-version of your image. There's lots of Information about the usage of basic Illustrator drawingtools here on StackExchange. You use the Autotrace function of illustrator. In the Object menu you find Image Trace. Use it while you have your picture ...

I am pretty sure even if you zoom in that close to a vector curve you are going to see those jagged edges. Like the above comment mentioned check out the difference between raster and vector.

I would use OneNote. It supports pretty much everything you're looking for, including full support for text, math formulas (just press Alt+=), drawing and sketching. OneNote automatically OCRs any handwritten text on the fly and indexes it for searching. It also does this for screen clippings and PDF printouts that you insert into it. You can use any ...

Looks a lot like Arial Condensed. If it's just a placeholder until you can get an officially sanctioned logo Arial Condensed will probably suffice.

Look into Symbols... I've used them before, I don't have illustrator open at the moment, so I'll do this from memory. Select your tile (you may want to save a copy of it in a separate file first just to be safe). Then you open the symbols pane, and choose "new symbol" while the basic tile is still selected. This will convert it into a symbol, which you ...
