Lesson 2. Using Vector Tools

Lesson 2. Using Vector Tools

In Lesson 1, you worked with bitmap images and manipulated pixels. In this lesson, you will work with the vector tools to create a logo for the Web site you are creating. Many objects can be created by drawing simple shapes and then combining them to create new shapes. You will learn methods to help you create a complex image from basic drawing tools. Because you are using vector tools, you will be able to easily move or change the shape of the objects you draw.
