Work With Photoshop and Illustrator

Rapid design and development is a big part of what makes you a successful designer. If you’re a freelancer, wasting time can be a wallet-breaking occurrence. A lot of designers find that they work well in either Photoshop or Illustrator but not both. The problem with this is that Illustrator (at least I find this to be true) is easier to use to create shapes, logos, etc. However, Photoshop is easier to use to create special effects. In order to get the best of both worlds, you have to be able to work with Photoshop and Illustrator combined.

I am a freelance designer, meaning I create logos, websites, flyers, and anything else under the sun. I have to be able to sketch out my ideas, and then build them quickly, using Adobe Illustrator. Then, I might need to fix a few images that will go on a flyer or a website, using Photoshop. I can’t be great at just Illustrator or Photoshop. I have to excel at both. Doing so, I have learned a few things about what works best in both programs, and how to maximize productivity by combining the power of both. In today’s video, I will show you how to work with Photoshop and Illustrator, taking text from Illustrator and dropping it in Photoshop as a smart object. I talk about the advantages of doing this, like keeping things completely editable.
