Adobe Illustrator CS6 Sneak Peak: Gradients on Strokes

Join Brenda Sutherland, Illustrator product manager, as she shares a new sneak peek into gradients on strokes in Illustrator CS6, part of Creative Suite CS6 and Adobe Creative Cloud.

Strokes are core to drawing in Illustrator, and for Illustrator CS6, the ability to apply gradients on strokes will let designers transform simple paths into visually complex and compelling shapes.

The beauty of this approach, beyond the imaginative artwork that can be created, is that the shape that’s created is an easily edited stroke, not the typical shape that’s defined by many points.

In Illustrator CS6, gradients on strokes can be applied along the length, across the width, or within a stroke, but the real magic happens when these new gradients are combined with the variable width stroke feature introduced in CS5.

Illustrator CS6 Sneak Peek!

Join Brenda Sutherland, Illustrator product manager, as she shares a sneak peek into what’s coming for Illustrator CS6 as part of Creative Suite CS6 and Adobe Creative Cloud.

Brenda is showing Illustrator CS6’s new approach to crafting seamless, repeating vector patterns. On-artboard controls let you create and edit patterns interactively. One-click tiling arrangements let you experiment quickly so you can spend more time being creative and less on planning.

If you’ve ever struggled with creating seamless patterns in Illustrator (and I know I have), you’re going to love this new way of working.
