  • Examples And Tips For Using Illustrator’s Warp Tools
    Adobe Illustrator is one very use­ful pro­gram for cre­at­ing vec­tor art­work. The tools and fea­tures avail­able in Illustrator make it easy to cre­ate dig­i­tal il­lus­tra­tions, whether from scratch or by trac­ing a pho­to­graph. But this is not all Illustrator can do. Businesses can cre­ate im­pres­sive graphs us­ing Illustrator’s Graph tools. Marketers can use the im­pres­sive Type tool and oth­er type fea­tures to de­sign single-page ads. Designers cre­ate lo­gos and oth­er mar­ket­ing graph­ics that need to be scal­able in Illustrator. In short, Illustrator is a com­pre­hen­sive vec­tor pro­gram that is dif­fi­cult to mas­ter. The aim of this ar­ti­cle is to pro­vide one more re­source for those of you yearn­ing to learn more about Illustrator. We’ll look at one of the less-mentioned fea­tures: the Warp tools, al­so known as the Liquify tools.
