FreeHand: Level 2

Use advanced drawing techniques to create complex shapes and to quickly generate many copies of objects in an illustration. Expand single paths into shapes. Create ruler guides and convert paths into guides. Combine paths to intertwine objects and simulate transparency. Use transformation tools to sclae, rotate, mirror, and skew objects. Distort, warp, and apply perspective to objects. Blend objects and colors for subtle or striking effects. Use composite paths to cut holes in images and simplify paths. Creat clipping paths to apply cropping effects, simulate transparency, and creat special effects. Create and apply master pages in a multi-page document.

Class targeted to:

The FreeHand student who wishes to enhance their basic knowledge and to be able to create and manipulate multi-page documents.
