Message from Terry Hemphill

Dear Adobe Illustrator CS2 users,

Welcome to Adobe Illustrator CS2 Classroom in a Book, the official training workbook for the drawing program that has long set the standard for creating graphically rich content that can go anywhere— print, the web, motion graphics, and now mobile devices.

With this edition, you’re in for a real treat—Illustrator CS2 has some amazing new features to discover. Lesson 1 introduces you to the new context-sensitive Control palette, which gives you access to over 80% of Illustrator’s controls from one compact location. Lesson 5 shows you my favorite, Live Trace, a new vector tracing feature that is stunningly easy and fast—a single click lets you turns pixels to vectors in seconds. And in Lesson 5 you’ll also see how to use Live Paint to color your designs intuitively, without worrying about how they were built.

Whether you’re new to Illustrator or consider yourself a seasoned pro, I’m sure you’ll find something new to learn—and love—in this comprehensive guide to Illustrator CS2.

Thanks for believing in Illustrator and the power of vector graphics.

Best regards,


Terry Hemphill
Adobe Illustrator Senior Product Marketing Manager
