Draw like a pro using the pen tool in Adobe Illustrator

This is a quick guide for anyone new to digital graphics. Coming from an old product, Macromedia Flash (which was bought by Adobe and later became Adobe Animate), I was used to drawing a line and dragging that line into a curve. Changing curves from their points was unfamiliar and took some learning. Almost all [...]

Adobe After Effects – How to make smooth animation using the Easing functions

For most programs with animation (Microsoft PowerPoint, Adobe Animate, Adobe After Effects, etc.) the default movement when you animate an object or property is linear. In other words, the object suddenly starts moving a certain speed, keeps that same speed, and suddenly stops. It looks clunky, goofy and unrefined. Here we’ll show you how to [...]

Save Time on Repetitive Tasks in Adobe Photoshop by Using Actions

Adobe Photoshop is a powerful photo-editing application. With Adobe Photoshop, you can do everything from touching-up photos to creating original artwork. Some tasks, however, can be quite repetitive. When you are cropping and resizing hundreds of photos, for instance, you don’t want to spend hours opening each individual file, applying treatments, saving and closing. If [...]
