1. Illustrator for Lunch 20 Pathfinder Crop tips Intro: Hello, I'm Helen Bradley. And welcome to this episode off Illustrative for lunch, 20 Pathfinder crop and cutting tips in 20 minutes or less. Illustrated for lunch is a serious of illustrated classes, every one of which teaches a small range of illustrated techniques. You'll get plenty of opportunity to reflect on your new skills in the class project. Today, we're looking at 20 Pathfinder crop and cutting tips so you'll learn tips for making the most of the Pathfinder palette. You'll learn techniques for cropping, artwork and images. How to apply Pathfinder effects and tricks involving the knife and scissors tool as well as much, much more. In most cases, the techniques and tips shown in this video will be appropriate for all versions off illustrated. But I'll tell you when they're not. As you're watching these videos, you will say a prompt. Which us? If you would recommend this class to others, please. If you are enjoying the class, do two things for me. Firstly, give it a thumbs up and secondly, right. Just a few words about why you're enjoying the class. These recommendations help other students to say that this is a class that they too might enjoy. End, learn from If you'd like to leave me a comment or a question, please do so. I read and respond to all of your comments and questions, and I look at and respond to all of your class projects. So if you already now, let's get started on 20 Pathfinder cropping cutting tips in 20 minutes or less. 2. Illustrator for Lunch™ - Five Pathfinder Crop and Cutout tips : create a no count text effect. You can create a knockout text effect using the Pathfinder palette. I have here some text. It's just regular text. It hasn't been converted to outlines, so it's fully edit herbal and above it, a red circle. I'll select over the circle and the text and in the Pathfinder palette, I'm gonna hold the altar Option K on a Mac as I click the exclude option here and what we get is this knockout effect. It's a compound shape here in the last pallet, so we have our text and we have our lips, and the color of this entire effect is applied via the compound shapes. If I select the compound shape, then I can change the color off this effect and it's safe through self. I turn on my background here just of a rectangle of the background. You can say that it's see thru I can move the circle or the text, and this is a live effects that's going to change wherever this circle is placed relative to the text underneath Pathfinder and Pathfinder effects, you're no doubt familiar with the Pathfinder palette that you can see here on the right of the screen. But did you know that there are also Pathfinder effects here? Affect Pathfinder? Add is the same as Unite, intersect and excluded both options on the top. Row off the Pathfinder palette and subtract this the same as miners. Front. These tools work a little bit differently. I've got two shapes here. I'm going to select them and try and apply one of these Pathfinder effects. We can't do that because we're asked to apply the effect two groups, layers or type objects. I've got a group here, so let's apply the effect using this group. This time we can apply an ad effect intersect, exclude and subtract, which is equivalent to minus front. The difference between these effects and the ones that you can apply using the Pathfinder is that these effects are live. So if I go here and select this shape, I can adjust the shape that has this effect applied to it. It's a live edit herbal effect. Create compound shapes from the par find a palette. In the previous tip, you learned how to apply effects. Using the Pathfinder effect, you can do the same thing from the Pathfinder palette, so Let's go and do a minus front on these two shapes and they just regular shapes. They're not inside a group or anything. I'm gonna hold down the altar K on a pay, say the option K on a Mac and click the minus front option. Here you can see we've created a compound shape. It has two rectangles in it, and as we did before, this shape is live. So we've been able to create a Pathfinder effect using the Pathfinder palette. But making sure that we applied the effect holding the altar or Option K to create this live effect is the result. Controlling shape overlap colors with hard mix and soft mix. Two off the Pathfinder effects that are not reflected in the Pathfinder palette are hard mix and soft mix. Let's have a look at hard mix. I'm going to choose effective Pathfinder and then hard mix on. What we're saying is the overlap between these two shapes has a different color. Now you can also use soft mix, which will give you a similar but edit herbal effect. I'll choose Effect Pathfinder and then soft mix with soft mix. We can control the mixing right so we could change it to, for example, 25% and that will give us a different result. Click OK when you're done. Any of these options can also be edited by opening up the appearance panel and double clicking the effect that you've applied to that particular Siri's off objects. You can make changes and then click. OK, create a live creditable say through text effect. I have a photograph here locked down at the back of the art board. On top of that, I have a partially say through rectangle off white and then some text on top. I'm going to select the text and the rectangle and group them with object group. And now I'm going to make the text say through by choosing effect. And then Pathfinder subtract the text is now say through. So if I go here to the last palate, you can say that we have this compound shape. We have the text Barcelona, which is fully edit herbal and our rectangle. The subtract option has given us text that we can say through to the image behind 3. Illustrator for Lunch™ - Second five Pathfinder Crop and Cutout tips: creating the outline around a pace of text with add. I'm going to select this text and apply and offset outlined to the entire pace of text. So I'll click here to add a new strike, and it's going to be orange color and it will be 10 pixels wide. I'm going to offset it by 10 pixels with Effect Path offset path and I'll just click. OK, you can say whether letters join that the effect is not off an outline around the text rather outline around the individual letters. So I'm going to select my text. And now let's go and choose Effect Pathfinder ad. Now we get a very different look here. We've got a true outline around our text, and it's created using the ad effect. Why the new illustrated crop tool isn't all it promises to bay. There's a new crop tall in Illustrated 2017 the most recent version. When you add an image it to a file, you get a option here on the toolbar called Crop Image. Click on it and you can crop the image. Now this tool only works with bit map images, so these are the kind of images like photos or sketches that you might scan and import into illustrator on What's happening here is unlike in previous versions, off Illustrator, the images actually getting cropped. So we've actually discarded all the outside of this image. And so we have just this pace of the image in our file. The file is going to be correspondingly smaller, so that's the advantage off this tool. But don't mistake this tall for a tall that crops illustrator artwork, it does not work on vector graphics problems with using they part. Find a crop option. I have an image here, and part off the image is outside the art board, but I have a rectangle that I've created that is the size of the outboard. It's a Neufville, no strike rectangle. If I wanted to use it to crop my art board, I conduce so. But there are problems with this particular process. Notice that the shapes all have strikes around them. When I select everything and go to the Pathfinder option and click the crop tool, what's going to happen is that everything is going to be cropped to the shape off that top rectangle. But I also lows my strokes. You need to be aware that if you use the Pathfinder crop toll any strokes on your shape, they're going to be lost in the process crop with export or a clipping mask there, a couple of alternatives that you have for cropping. An image like this on one is with the rectangle that we had from the previous tip. The no film, no strike rectangle. I'm going to select all the objects, including the top Most No Feel no strike rectangle, right click and choose make clipping mask that clips the image using the rectangle as the clipping mask. The content is still there. It's just not visible. If I undo that, there's another option that you can use. If you're headed to the Web, you can choose file and then exports safer Web legacy provided you click on Clipper to Art board. Then the image is going to be clipped to the art board shape when its exporters as a J Peg ping or Jif file using divide to cut an object into segments. I have a polygon here at the bottom off the liar and above it are three lines extending well past the edges off the polygon I can use divide to cut the polygon up into these triangle shapes that are made by the lines to do so. I'm going to select over everything the polygon and the lines and from the Pathfinder, I'm going to click Divide. I have a group here that has six objects in itself. I select the group and ungroomed PID. You'll say that we now have a Siri's off triangles. The lines have been used to cut the polygon into paces, and you can see the lines themselves have been sacrificed in the process. 4. Illustrator for Lunch™ - Third five Pathfinder Crop and Cutout tips: cutting a shape with the knife tool, the knife told shares, a tall by position with the razor and scissors. It's a free form tour, but it has no editing capability at all, so you can drag a line through a shape and you'll cut the shape into. But you can't edit the cart because it's already been made. Let me just undo that. One instance where the knife tool might be useful is using older or option with it. In that case, you can draw a straight line with the tall and have exactly the same result, but again, no editing capability With this tool cut up on object Using split into grid, I have a rectangle selected here. It's filled with a patent. I'll choose object a path and split into grid. In this way, I can split the object into a Siri's off blocks arranged in columns and rows. So I'm going to add three rows and four columns, and I'm going to add a 10 pixel gutter in between each off the blocks that I'm cutting the shape into. If I click preview, you'll see what the shape is going to look like when it's cut up, and you can also optionally add guidelines when you click. OK, you now have a Siri's off individual objects that the rectangle has been cut up into. If you cut up a shape that's not a rectangle, you're going to end up with rectangular boxes. The shape is going to be converted to a rectangle as you cut it into this grid. Using the shipbuilder toll is an alternative to the Pathfinder. The shape builder tool was introduced in Illustrator CS five, and it could be used to perform all the options from the shape modes. For example, in the Pathfinder palette, I'm going to select over all of the shapes of everything selected on going to the shape. Build a tall and I'm going to unite on these shapes. So I'm just going to drag over the two shapes to unite Hm. Let's have a look at minus front, which would involve removing the green elements while I'll hold the old K or option on a Mac. As I drag to remove these pieces here, let's have a look at Intersect where we'll keep this square here and remove these by holding the all turkey or option on a Mac as we drag over them and finally exclude will remove this piece here, holding alter option and just dragging over it to remove it. Uses scissors told to cut a path. The scissors tool shares a toolbar position with the arrays, it'll and it can be used on a pass to cut the path. At that point, this path here has a brushstroke applied around it. And if I cut the path than the brush, stroke is going to be applied in a different way. If I cut the path in a couple of places and we're going to get multiple brush strokes applied to this shape over here, I have a circular path with a series of blended shapes applied to it, but they're not stretching all the way around this circular path. Well, if I go to the scissors tall and cut the path, then the shapes are going to be a applied around the path. Evenly spaced. Create a doughnut shape in three ways. I have a serious of red circles on top of some larger orange circles. We're going to look at how we can cut the red circle out of the orange one in three different ways. I'm going to select the Pathfinder, and I can use minus front that will cut out the red hole from the orange. If I select both shapes and use exclude, I'm going to get the same result instead. This time, the resulting shape takes on the red color off the piece that we removed. We can also select the shapes right, click and choose make compound path. In the last palette, you'll say that we've got three identical compound pars, the only difference being that one of them is colored a little differently to the others. 5. Illustrator for Lunch™ - Final five Pathfinder Crop and Cutout tips: removing a curved line from a circle. I have a black circle here with a white line through it, and the line has just been stroked with white with a large stroke size. What I want to do is I want to end up with two paces off the black circle with a say through element in the middle. I can do that by first turning the line into a filled shape. I'm gonna choose Object Puff outlined, struck. Now select this filled object and the circle, and I'll group them with object group. Having group them, I can now use the Pathfinder effect and I'm going to choose. Subtract that removes the line from the circle. But this is fully edit herbal stuff. We don't like where the path is. We can easily move the path, and we still get the same effect, trimming a shape with divide below or divide. You could trim the ends off this shape, using either divide or divide below. Let's look at divide. I'm going to draw a vertical line here, and I'm going to select both the line and my shape, side of the line and the path selected. I'll go here to divide. And now, with my group selection tool, I can select over this end of the shape and remove it. When we use divide, we select both the line and the shape divide below works a little differently. This end, I'm going to again create a line. But this time I need to select only the line because it won't work. If I choose the shape as well, I'll choose object Puff divide objects below and again I get a group with this element here separated from the remainder off the group. With the group selection tall, I can just select over the piece. I want to remove and remove it. Harness the power of minus front. Here I have a group off circular objects and that the very back is a black rectangle. If I select all these objects and click minus front, what's gonna happen is that illustrators going to subtract absolutely everything from the bottom most object and so we're going to get holes in as shape. Now it's got nothing to do with the fact that these objects are in a group, so I'm going to select them and I'm going toe ungroomed them so Now I just have a Siri's off objects. But because the black rectangle is at the back when I select all of these objects and click minus front everything that is in front off the bottom, most object is subtract did from it. Repeat the last Pathfinder action. Whenever you have used the Pathfinder, for example, I've selected everything here, and I'm going to use minus front. You can automatically repeat the last function without actually applying it. I'm going to select over all of these shapes on on the pace er press control for on the Mac That would be command for that immediately repeats the last process that you did. Using the path. Find a palette, create a sophisticated, overlapping shape effect. I have a Siri's off overlapping circles here and a photograph underneath. What I want to do is say these white areas, but where the blue is, I want to say all the way through to the photo underneath. Simply turning the fill off isn't going to work, because I'm saying some extra edges to these circles that I don't want to say so I'll reinstate the Phil, keeps the shapes all selected and goes the Pathfinder and click trim. I've lost my strikes, but all of my shapes are now created the way that they should bay. So let's go to the stroke and let's re apply a white stroke and I'll set the strike white to about 19 pixels. Now I can go and turn off the Phils. I'm going to target the Phil and turn it off, and this time we're saying the effect that we came here looking for. 6.
