Exploring on your own

Experiment by placing your own images and recreating them using a template. Find an image, logo, or other simple artwork that you would like to create save it as any number of image file formats that Illustrator CS2 can accept, including: .pdf, .psd, .tiff, .eps, .jpg and more.

1.
Create a new Illustrator document, choose the size and color mode based upon your needs, or simply leave the defaults settings unchanged.

2.
Choose File > Place. When you browse to locate the artwork you wish to recreate, select it and check the Template checkbox. Choose OK. The image is placed on a locked template with a clean layer at the top of the stacking order.

3.
Select your Pen tool () and start using the techniques you learned throughout this lesson to help recreate your graphic.
