Lesson 1. FreeHand Basics

Lesson 1. FreeHand Basics

Macromedia FreeHand is a powerful application that you can use for your creative projects, whether they are for print or the web. Designed originally as a tool for creating line art for print, FreeHand has grown to be a tremendous tool for all your graphic projects and ideas. For example, you can use FreeHand to draw a logo for your company, create business cards and letterheads and other marketing materials, storyboard your web site, and even create Macromedia Flash presentations. Although Macromedia Flash is a powerful web animation tool, FreeHand has better drawing tools. The two applications work together, giving designers a commanding set of tools for creating everything necessary for print or motion graphics.

This lesson introduces you to the FreeHand MX interface and shows you how you can customize your workspace. You then use some of the basic drawing tools to create a logo for a fictitious company.
