A complete Adobe Illustrator Tutorial.
What is Adobe Illustrator?
Adobe Illustrator is called a vector drawing and graphic program. Where We create cartoons, diagrams, charts, and logos using in this program. Unlike bitmap images that store information in a grid of dots. This makes vector graphics scalable without the loss of resolution. Using Adobe Illustrator we can create Brochures, Posters, and Logo Designs, T-Shirts or anything to be printed.
Main Keys & Concepts.
To know different between Vector & Raster?
The difference between vector and raster graphics is that raster graphics are composed of pixels, while vector graphics are composed of paths.
Now we understand the difference between the vector based graphics and pixels based or raster based graphics so now take a look at more.
(Open Path and Close Path).
The open path has no closed area.
The close path has closed area.
The straight line has two anchor points.
One from bottom and second is from the top.
Smooth line. It has control handles.
So start with understanding what these vector objects are we know that path which is made of anchor points with the path. Some path which is curve which has controls handles.
Which defines those curves.
A key concept working with vector graphics something call selection is called staking selections.
Different between Selection Tool (V) & Direction Tool (A).
Selection tool: – you can only select and change the size of single object.
Direction Tool: – You can change more than one object inside the object and also change the shape of the object.
Pressing shift key you can select more than object individually.
Select more than one then one object with pressing shift key from the keyboard.

Open file and Double click on Object.
you can select each part of the object.
