I have traced a logo from a jpeg in illustrator. It is two colours - black and blue. When it was made it ended up with an extra blue shape outlining the some of the black. Is there a way to add the blue shape to the black rather than just recolouring it all to the black? I'm relatively new to Illustrator.


If I understand you correctly, the pathfinder tool is the answer for you. Go to Window > Pathfinder to open the Pathfinder window, select both shapes you want to join and press the Unite button in the pathfinder window (it's the first one.)

That should do the trick.
