In this lesson, you will complete several exercises and receive an introduction to some
of the important capabilities of Adobe Illustrator. Have fun with this lessonthese
features are covered in more detail in later lessons. If you feel uncomfortable jumping
right in to creating a project, you can skip to Lesson 2, Getting to Know the
Workspace and come back to this lesson later.
Starting up
Before starting, make sure that your tools and panels are consistent by resetting your
workspace. See Resetting Adobe Illustrator CS5 Preferences on page 3.
You will work with several files from the ai01lessons folder in this lesson. Make sure
that you have loaded the ailessons folder onto your hard drive from the supplied DVD.
See Loading lesson files on page 4.
See Lesson 1 in action!
Use the accompanying video to gain a better understanding of how to use
some of the features shown in this lesson. The video tutorial for this lesson
can be found on the included DVD.

The project
In this lesson you will create a comp (rough design) of a web page using some
features that have been around for years, as well as new features recently added to
Adobe Illustrator CS5.
1 Launch Adobe Illustrator CS5.
2 Choose File > Browse in Bridge or press the Go to Bridge button ( ) in the
application bar at the top of the workspace.
By pressing the Go to Bridge button, you launch a separate application called Adobe
Bridge. Bridge is an indispensable application that acts as the central command
center for all your CS5 Suite applications and helps you to organize your Adobe
Illustrator projects. You can use Bridge to help you easily locate files. With Adobe
Bridge, you can see a preview of every file within any folder.
3 Once Bridge opens, navigate to the ai01lessons folder within the ailessons folder

access one of the additional libraries that are included with your installation of
Illustrator CS5.
1 Click on Fill in the Control panel (at the top of the work area) and then click on the
panel menu ( ) in the upper-right of the Swatches panel that appears.
2 Select Open Swatch Library > Kids Stuff. A new Swatch panel appears named Kids

The Kid Sff panel.
3 Double-click on the folder on the left side of the Jelly Beans color group. This adds
the group to the Swatches panel.
4 Make sure the rounded rectangle is still selected and then click and hold on Fill in
the Control panel. Choose the Yellow (C=0, M=3, Y=75, K=0) color in the Jelly Beans

15 11 2011 Adobe Illustrator CS5 Digital Classroom Tutorial
4/17 .agitraining.com/pages/ailearning.html
You will now use the new Shape Builder tool to combine two shapes to create your
own unique shape.
1 Smart Guides offer assistance when aligning one shape with another and also
tracking the size and position of your objects as you are creating them. Verify that
Smart Guides are checked by looking under the View menu. If Smart Guides does not
have a checkmark on the left, select it now.
2 Click and hold the Rounded Rectangle tool ( ) and select the Rectangle tool ( ).
Click and drag from the center of the rounded rectangle shape and release when the
rectangle is flush with the bottom and right sides of the rounded rectangle. You are
essentially creating the sharp corner that will be in the lower-right of this shape. The
shape will also take on the yellow fill.
Click and drag o creae a recangle.
3 Using the Selection tool, Shift+click on the rounded rectangle shape. Both the
rectangle and the rounded rectangle are selected.
4 Select the Shape Builder tool ( ) from the Tools panel.
5 With the Shape Builder tool, click and drag from the larger rounded rectangle all the
way down into the lower-right corner of the rectangle shape and release. The shapes
are now combined into one shape.
Click and drag through the shapes. The result.
< back o men
Ceaing he malle combined hape
You will now create the smaller shape used on the left side of the page. You will
create a new rounded rectangle shape so that you can visually set how rounded you
would like the corners to be.
1 Click and hold on the Rectangle tool to select the hidden Rounded Rectangle tool.
2 Click and drag (but dont release!) to start creating the new rounded rectangle shape.
While dragging press the down arrow key repeatedly to reduce the size of the rounded
corner. You might have to press the down arrow many times to see the difference.
Keep in mind that this shortcut will not work if you release the mouse; it only works
while you are initially clicking and dragging out the shape. Experiment by pressing the
up arrow key (repeatedly) to increase the corner radius. Adjust the corner radius to a
point where you are visually happy with it but do NOT release the mouse yet.
3 An exact height and width are not important for this shape. In the example in this
lesson, the mouse was released when the measurement reached approximately 150
pixels in width and 100 pixels in height.

Adding smbols
Symbols are an extremely useful feature that all users should be familiar with. Not only
can you use symbols as easily accessible (and affordable) clip art, but you can store
your own art, such as logos and other frequently used artwork, as symbols so that you
can reuse them easily. In this example, you take advantage of symbols to build the
navigation arrows in the image gallery.
1 If the Symbols panel is not visible, choose Window > Symbols now.
2 From the panel menu (in the upper-right of the Symbols panel) select Open Symbol
Library > Web Button and Bars. A new panel appears, named Web Buttons and Bars.
3 Scroll to locate the symbol named Bullet7 Grey and select it, then click and drag it
to the left of your image gallery. If it helps, choose Small List View from the Web
Buttons and Bars panel menu.
4 With the Bullet7 symbol selected, double-click on the Rotate tool ( ). The Rotate
dialog box appears.
5 Type 180 into the Angle text field and press OK. The symbol is now rotated and is
pointing to the left.
6 Drag another Bullet7 Grey symbol to the right side of the image gallery.
7 Use the Selection tool and Shift+click to select both of the new symbols, then click
and hold the Shear tool ( ) to select the Scale tool ( ).
8 Double-click on the Scale tool; the Scale dialog box appears. Type 50 into the
Uniform Scale text field, and then press OK.
9 If necessary you can select the new Bullet7 symbols and use the arrow keys to
nudge the arrows into place. You can also select both arrows and use the Align panel
to Align the centers or tops of the symbols.
10 Switch to the Selection tool and press Ctrl+A (Windows) or Command+A (Mac OS)
to select all the artwork on the Image Gallery layer. Reposition the image gallery so
that it is above the dog image.
If you would like to input the exact values that are used in the example, go to the X
and Y text fields on the Control panel, makes sure the upper-left reference point is
selected and enter the X value of 420 pixels and the Y value of 125 pixels.

Adding lines of tet
In this section you create the wavy lines that are meant to represent body copy on the
web page comp. When creating a rough draft of a web page, it is a good idea to use
graphics to represent the look and feel of text without adding actual content.
