Illustrator CS4 Appearance Panel

There are some great new enhancements to the Appearance panel in Illustrator CS4 that will consolidate your workflow and save users a lot of time. For instance, it’s now possible to make color and stroke adjustments right in the appearance panel, as well as add new fills, strokes, and effects. The new graphic styles panel has new abilities for combining and previewing effects.

    Good tutorials! Keep them coming as much as you can. We need more tutorials in illustrator because there are way too much photoshop, but not enough on illustrator.

    Thanks for the cool tutorials!

  • Colin Cooler says:

    After listening to several of the tutorials, I just want to say that I’m generally impressed with the quality. But I am particularly impressed with Cheryl’s pacing (as well as RC’s), i.e, fast, informative, and “no nonsense.” Keep up the good work, Cheryl.
