    We recently updated our files to the Adobe Illustrator CC 2017 (November 2016) release. We've also added links to image assets used in the technical guides.

    ​Thanks guys this very influential to my process, it is a handful o remember and cover everything. I can recall certain concepts of the process only surface when using the application with that method in mind. As well know certain projects use certain tools and applications to use and file size and handling. So have a folder full of PDF's in the cloud would come in handy, the assets are a plus but I suggest using your own. Not that is becomes harder or more challenging but more intuitive and essential to your process. Thank you once again and please stay blessed.

    This is great. Thank you Adobe Education! Is there a lesson plan or unit study for Lightroom?

    Hi Steve - we don't have curriculum like this activity for Lightroom, but here's a link to a filtered search for teaching materials for Lightroom. Hopefully you find something useful to you in that list.

    Is there a book that contains all of the handouts for the entire Visual Design curriculum?

    I don't think the sixth resource listed in the lesson plan, "How to use layers in Photoshop" is linked in the Downloads section. Could you please check that? Thanks!

    HI Penny,

    That's great that the worksheets are so helpful! Unfortunately, due to copyright issues we don't provide the original pictures. You need to supply your own images.

    Best,
