New Tutorial: Color Separating with Layers

In this tutorial Michelle shares a method for working with low resolution files and color separating, while still maintaining your Photoshop layers.

She created this design in Procreate and did not verify the canvas size before starting. Yikes! Instead of redrawing the design, she’ll show you how she increased the ppi and then cleaned up the pixels through indexing.




Recording Posted: November Illustrator Live with Laura Coyle

In this training Laura covered:

  • New additions to Illustrator, including the simplify tool and a wonderful new way to delete anchor points
  • The recolor artwork tool, including ways to isolate specific colors or motifs (it’s a game changer!)

Watch the training recording here.





New One Hour Challenge: Recoloring a Pattern

After Laura Coyle’s most recent training on Illustrator’s Recolor Artwork Tool we wanted to post a quick challenge so you can apply what you learned. Chelsea pulled a fun new color palette and created downloadable Illustrator swatches for members to use.

Take a closer look at this design challenge here.
