  5. thanks for these helpful tutorial :)) l m just beginner …

  6. A good tip for tracing photos or shapes is to trace the whole picture in one swoop, even if it isnt perfect. Then go back with the direct selection tool (white arrow) and tidy them up!

  7. Oh thanks, I have windows xp so I’ll need to practice with the keys and see what kind of short cuts I discover ^-^

    Thanks for the tip, though!

  8. The best tip I ever got? When your line or curve needs to radically change direction? Click and hold on your last point, press and hold down the option key (on a Mac, – Sorry, I don’t know from PC’s) and drag away from the point a little in the direction you need to go. Then, let off and go from there.

    Cha-ching! You just turned on a dime.

    Hope it works. If you never quit, you’re never beat and you’re not a loser!

    I salute you for tackling something tough and staying with it.

  9. Oh no, not yet. I will not give up until I finally master it, it’s going to be a big pain but I know it will all be good in the end 🙂
