FreeHand 8 Authorized is the next best thing to a class, offering a series of nine excellent lessons from Macromedia. Appropriate for both beginning and more accomplished users of the Windows and Macintosh versions of the software, the book takes you through each lesson using the practice files on the included CD-ROM, which also has trial versions of Macromedia FreeHand, xRes, Extreme 3D, Fontographer, and Flash 2. The lessons, which total at least 14 hours of study, include precise, well-illustrated instructions and offer the equivalent of a course at a Macromedia authorized training center.
First, the guide tours the FreeHand interface, showing you how to create basic shapes, apply fills and strokes, align and group shapes, and modify your view. The following chapters guide you as you combine text and graphics in an image, apply and edit color, manipulate paths and points, use layers and styles, and work with multiple-page documents. More advanced techniques teach you to apply transparency effects; use a 3-D image; and work with templates, composite paths, gradient fills, clipping paths, and Xtras. You learn how to blend shapes to create shading effects, and, in the final chapter, how to create Web images. In this last chapter, you work with Shockwave Flash, create GIF and JPEG images, and build Web pages using the insta.html Xtra.

The book's projects feature a range of images, from logos to whimsical characters.

Learn to use FreeHand 8 for all your creative projects, whether they're destined for print publications or the Web. This book is updated to cover FreeHand 8's innovative new capabilities, such as dynamic transparency controls, customization features, and the Freeform tool. Learn to apply Xtras to create dazzling special effects such as Emboss, Shadow, and Mirror. The companion CD contains practice exercises for all the lesons, plus a trial version of FreeHand 8 and other exciting Macromedia products. Please click here to ask a question
