  • Use anti-aliasing features to view and align graphics to a pixel path. Save graphics as symbols to use multiple times in a document. Use symbol libraries and tools to apply and manipulate groups of symbols.
  • Create web graphics utilizing the pixel grid, slicing and image maps, and SVG and SWF vector file formats. Perform file optimization to balance size and image integrity.
  • Use the Colour Guide to create colour groups using harmony rules, and the Kuler panel to add swatches. Use the updated Pantone colour matching system to correct and alter colours.
  • Create and apply painting techniques including brushes, strokes, pattern fills, transparency, blends, masks and gradient meshes.
  • Use Image Trace and the options on the Image Trace panel to trace raster images into vector graphics. Use the perspective grid to create multidimensional illustrations.
  • Create type that follows the flow of a path, and move, flip and adjust its spacing.
  • Rotate type and adjust its vertical and horizontal scaling. Use font types, find and replace fonts, and work with missing fonts within a document.
  • Create and apply special effects that change the way an object looks without altering its original structure. Create graphic styles and save styles as a library file.
  • Use the Print settings to manage multipage documents, colour separations, printer?s marks and bleeds, gradients and meshes, and overprinting and trapping.
