Color is an enormous and complicated topic. But did you know that there are rules you can follow to simplify the color picking process? It’s true. Like music, some colors clash and are dissonant. Others complement each other like the notes in a beautiful chord. In this in-depth course, expert trainer Iain Anderson teaches you how to use the Color Guide and its Harmony rules to help you make your project’s color choices work together to achieve clarity and power.
After shedding light on color, Iain then presents Illustrator CS6’s vast assortment of brush types and explains their capabilities from both a technical and artistic point of view. And, if you’re a graphics tablet user, you’ll benefit from Iain’s demonstrations of the new improved brush types which Adobe designed to feel and respond just like their real-world counterparts!
Finally, to wrap it all up, Iain gives you a chance to apply everything you've learned in a mini-project: A Color Illustration. This demonstration shows you how all these concepts work in an illustrator’s real world.

This tutorial gives the illustrated step by step instructions to create a New Product Flyer using the Professional Graphic Design Application - Corel Draw.
With it you will learn how to do Document Setup, Convert to Curves, Delete Nodes, Adjust Control Handles, Duplicate Shapes, Mirror Image, Convert to Bitmap, Set Gaussian Blur, Insert Text on a Path, Mirror Text, Set Gradient with Fountain Fill, and much more
In this tutorial we're going to be working with the CorelDraw. At some point when working with images you'll realize that you want to isolate an image from the background. As a result, you'll have to create what is called a mask and this allows you to use the object in a variety of compositions.
Fortunately, PHOTO-PAINT offers you a wide variety of tools that you can use, of which the CorelDraw is one. We're going to start cutting this image out from the background in a moment, but before we do, I want to draw your attention to the Objects docker on the right. You'll notice the background image, there's an Object that I've filled with green and a copy of the background that we're going to use as our working Object, or layer, when we're creating the mask.
The purpose of the green layer is for when we finish the masking process and we've exited the Corel Draw. What I do at this point is I zoom into the image and look at the edges of the mask, which I check against this high contrast background, to make sure that there are no artifacts, or holes in the image. Once that's done I've completed the masking process.
At this point I'll turn the top background object (layer) on and make sure it's activated. And now we're ready to access the Corel Draw. One last point, when cutting out an image, you can use a mouse, but it's unwieldy and clumsy, a bit like painting with a baseball bat. I recommend that you use a drawing tablet instead. I use the Wacom 6x8 Intuos 3 tablet.
Thanks for your use our app. I hope you enjoy CorelDraw tutorials
The application is build on the principles of a memory game that presents a character and five different possible answers. It can be configured to train do hiragana to romaji or romaji to hiragana.
A second part allows to practice writing with the finger or a stylus (e.g. Wacom Bamboo) on the display. Once finished it can be compared to the original including the correct stroke order. Through this active participation the memorization effect is even stronger.
A statistics view gives the learner a better insight into the learning progress. It is also a good thing to stay motivated.
Finally there is a handy character table for Hiragana with Romaji and stroke animation.
