Post Illustrator
Anybody here use Illustrator? I love it for doodles and writing, but I can't figure out how to save anything so that the size will be the same in Photoshop. I choose file>Save for web>Png at 24...and the image, when imported into PS3 is teeny tiny. So I tried PNG8--and the layer was locked and I couldn't figure out how to unlock it....
Anybody recommend any good Illustrator books or sites? For a beginner...

Meegan, I just got Illustrator with my new CS4 for my birthday - whoo hoo! Thank goodness for student pricing! But I haven't even opened it yet. Have you tried lynda.com for some tutorials? There is also a free 10 week Illustrator course going on right now with Creative Techs. Its a video class every Monday afternoon but you have to be there at the class, or you can buy the whole thing for $50 so you can watch it whenever you want. Both of those might help you.

Okay, so I used Illustrator tonight but I have no idea if I did anything of value. And I don't think I could repeat what I did if I had to! ROFL! Good thing I'm signed up for the free class!

Ellie,
Be sure to check out Academic Superstore. If you have anyone in your family who is a student K-college, or if you are a teacher (I can't remember), you can get huge discounts. Don't pay full price for it.

;)
