December Illustrator Live with Laura Coyle: New Recolor Artwork Tool

From Laura, “For December’s session, I will give a tour of the NEW Recolor Artwork feature in Adobe Illustrator. This feature was updated in the newest version of Illustrator (2021) that was released last month at Adobe MAX, and allows you to sample colors from images in your document. The new feature is really fun to work with, and Adobe left all of the original panels intact as well, so we still have the original controls for Recolor Artwork.

I’ll also leave more time for your questions this month, so please post anything you would like me to demonstrate here!

The presentation date is Tuesday, 12/15/20 at 11 am EST

You can watch November’s Illustrator Live here.
