, / 2313 9

Illustrator is a terrific resource for creating symbols. Corey takes those symbols into Photoshop and uses the new 3D tools to get creative.

    Cool idea with those vector images. Some of them look pretty sweet in the 3D environment. A whole new avenue to experiement with this weekend.
    Thanks for the tip.

    Just a comment about the video player you’re using… not being able to change the volume on the player itself during the “commercial” before the screen cast is highly annoying. Luckily, I have a mute button because the volume playback on that is ridiculously high compared to the volume of the videos.

    Just sayin.

    WoW! I am new to Illustrator but have been working with PS since version 3 however, i can’t seem to get the background colour to stay on when moving the object tool as you do in the tutorial. It automatically goes to transparent. So I can’t seem to see what the result will be until I stop moving the mouse. Then I have to remove from history.

    What am i doing wrong or not doing. Tried using the shift key or option key also tried the clipping mask but to no avail.

    Btw just switched over to a Mac from Windows so I’m thinking that I have not set PS up correctly or use the correct buttons on keyboard?

    Please help

    Very cool. I am just beginning to watch your videos, but thank you already. I will definitely keep watching. 🙂

    Also very cool how you have 想像力in the back or the screen XD
    I suppose it’s the real key to all designs.

    But CS5 really seems to have a punch of nice features!
    Will stay tuned on this!
