Adobe CS5 Training – They Just Keep Coming!

Last week saw the release of not one or two, but four Adobe CS5 training courses. This puts us up to 7 training courses released covering 5 of the Adobe CS5 programs – Photoshop, Flash, Dreamweaver, Fireworks, and Illustrator – with InDesign and Photoshop (presented on PC) coming soon.

Two of the four courses released are part of our ACA Certification training utilizing the Windows versions of the Adobe programs, versus the previously released versions utilizing the Mac programs.

The other two courses are not part of the ACA certification training, but cover the fundamentals of useful tools in the Adobe suite.

Illustrator CS5 Fundamentals


Illustrator CS5 gives you amazing new features like perspective drawing, draw shapes and scene in 1-, 2-, and 3-point linear drawing. Give your images character with the new Bristle Brush tool. Create vector objects precisely on the file’s pixel grid for delivering pixel-aligned raster artwork. Whatever the vector task Illustrator has the tool to do the job.

Fireworks CS5 Fundamentals


Adobe® Fireworks® CS5 software enables you to create expressive, highly optimized graphics for the Web or virtually any device — from Smartphones to kiosks to embedded displays. Create Web sites, user interfaces, and rich prototypes that are editable in both vector and bitmap modes. In this course you will learn how to quickly create wireframes from Fireworks templates. Add text, symbols, and imagery with the robust vector and bitmap toolset. Add pages and customize them quickly with Smart Guides, and export them as clickable PDF mock-ups for approval.
