Description

Learn everything you need to know about the tool that every Designer has to master!

Most of the tools of Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign are easy to learn and understand, but there is one major exception: the Pen tool. It is a very versatile vector drawing tool present in all three applications and can save you a lot of time and effort in many ways if you learn to use it properly. It can be used for drawing shapes and illustrations, creating custom frames for your layouts, making selections of your images, designing custom paths for your type, drawing artistic effects and so much more.
In this course, we will learn everything you need to know about the Pen tool. You can master it following many exercises and in less than 2 hours you can become a real Pen tool pro in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign.
