In the second lesson, I learnt the basics of Adobe Illustrator. Here's a few examples that I found on the internet.
Firstly, I understood what's the difference between raster and vector. Raster uses pixels and vector is a geometry which uses points. The picture below is an example.
Then, I learnt that opening a new file is one of the most important action in the designing process. This is because many can get the size of the poster wrong and that is really bad. I will take note to carefully choose my options before clicking "OK". Afterwards, we moved on to the different tools for drawing, creation, typing, selection and many more. The difficult part of the lesson was using the pen tool. It can get tricky but I learnt that all a person need is practice. I will keep practicing using the pen tool! After using other tools such as selection, direct, shape and text, we moved on to the layering in Illustrator. Layering is very important as it makes everything neat and I can find everything easier. I also learnt how to drag an image on the file!
At the end of the lesson, I learned how to create PDF and export files to jpg. It was an easy process. I also learnt the difference of quality and size of PDF, tif, and jpg.
Here's what I created for the lesson! I mainly used the shape, text and pen tool! I also dragged a picture of balloons to the poster and changed the effect to "Multiply". It was such an exciting lesson! :)
