    illustrator logos. I work for first time in illustrator cs5 doing a logo
    and a wrap for a van and I am seeing videos to understand some process, I
    was king of on hour trying to do that by myself. Thank you and please post

    Hi, I am trying to learn Adobe Illustrator and I would really like for you
    to do a tutorial editing a logo template with all the compound paths in it!
    I have been trying to use logo templates for learning purposes but can’t
    seem to get it right because all the compound paths are so complicated!!!
    Thanks!!!

    Thanks for the video, it has been a help to me after being shoved into
    trying to learn AI. I have a request: I am needing to convert a JPEG image
    with multiple color gradients to Vector. I have no idea how to reinsert
    those gradient colors once I have used the Live Trace feature. HELP!?

    Thanks for watching and leaving a comment. What is your main goal with Ai?
    If you are interested in creating logos and need help with a specific “how
    to” I can be of help to you. I just need more help or detail in what you
    are attempting to accomplish.
