Adobe Illustrator CS5 is used to create graphics and type in vector format. Vector graphics are made up of points, lines, and curves that are defined by mathematical equations. Vector graphics are resolution independent, which means that they can be resized to any size without losing quality. This handout provides an overview of the Illustrator CS5 user interface and vector graphics, and covers how to create different shapes using the Pen tool.
