Vector graphics and images
Two kinds of graphics are currently used: pixel-based graphics, such as Photoshop output, and vector-based graphics, such as Illustrator output. Vector-based graphics retain their quality at any size, which is obviously a great thing in today's world.
In this course, you will acquire the skills to retouch pixel images and to design vector graphics. You're going to learn what Photoshop and Illustrator can do and what they are used for.
No previous knowledge of either programme is required.
