If you work in Fashion, you no doubt have come across tech packs, which are informative documents that you create to communicate with a manufacturer all the necessary components needed to construct a product.
I was super excited to play around with the myPantone app (downloaded from the iTunes app store for $9.99 or the Google Play store for $7.99 ) and see how well it performed. What I wanted to explore most was how well it captured color from a photograph. I did a test to see how colors the app picked compared to colors I picked.
Adobe Kuler (now named Adobe Color) is a really fun (and free) color theme app from Adobe, that allows you to create color palettes that can be shared and synced to your Adobe apps including Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign.
Kuler can be found from your browser at Kuler.Adobe.com or from the Apple App Store for your iOS devices (sorry Android users).
This is a great way for designers to develop color themes and easily sync them to your computer or share them with others.
In this blog ill cover how to use Kuler online and Kuler iOS apps, create palettes, and then load your new palettes into Adobe apps.
I was really excited to update Illustrator CC to Illustrator CC 2014 and play around with all of the new features (specifically those to the Pen Tool).
But after updating via the Creative Cloud application and ensuring everything was “Up to date”, I launched AI CC only to find that none of the new features were working, leaving me to wonder if there was a setting I had missed to get the new features.
This tutorial will walk you through the process of installing the new 2014 updates and removing the older versions of Adobe. (This tutorial is mostly mac based but those on Windows should be able to follow along to do the steps on Windows.)
By now you have probably heard of the amazing spread of Illustrator plugins by Astute Graphics. Their plugins such as VectorScribe, MirrorMe, Stylism and more (11 in total) are both intuitive and powerful tools for designers.
