About This Class

In this course, I will be teaching you about the many plugins created by Astute Graphics that essentially in the gaps in Adobe Illustrator. I have looked for many options for fixing this problem created by adobe and Astute Graphics has created the perfect solution.

There are so many features that Adobe Illustrator lacks and many users have problems with it crashing often. The plugins that Astute Graphics has created solve almost any problem you may be having in illustrator. There are tools for autosaving and backing up your document as you're working on them, better snapping tools, live mirroring, auto-cleanup plugins to erase invisible anchor points floating around the screen, and so much more.

These plugins have changed the way I work in Adobe Illustrator and In this course, you will learn the benefit they can have for your workflow. They all come with free trials so you can easily follow along in the course and learn what they can do.
