Path Corel to Illustrator to InDesign for Drawing Objects

Most of the Graphic Designer do not use PATH in their work. Graphic Design who use this is a SMART DESIGNER. It save lots of our time. like;

  • If we want to create any critical shape in InDesign which is more easy to create in CorelDraw. Smart Artist create that in CorelDraw create path to InDesign.
  • Sometime if you want to draw something which is more easy in Illustrator. Smart Artists do that in Illustrator and give path to Photoshop.
  • There are lot of things to do with path. These are just two examples.

In this tutorial I am not going to explain you what is path, you can find it on other websites. I will explain you what is the best use of it. To know how to create path check this tutorial.

CorelDraw to >>> InDesign | Illustrator | Photoshop

When we create any shape or drawing in CorelDraw and want to open it in InDesign, Illustrator or Photoshop. We need to change it's Save Type. We Save the document in AI Mode (Adobe Illustrator Mode).
Then we can open it to Illustrator. In Illustrator we copy the lines directly and paste it in InDesign. Same for Photoshop.
Tip: First of all we need to open that AI file in Illustrator then we can open with other softwares.

Illustrator to >>> Photoshop

When we do Digital Coloring in Photoshop, we have to do it's digital inking in Illustrator. After finishing the inking process we copy the inkings and paste directly to Photoshop. There we see 4-5 options to paste he artwork. We use Path if we want to apply and modified brush of Photoshop.
Tip: After pasting the path, just Press B (Brush Tool) and select color and size of brush and press Enter. Enjoy this.

There are more other use of this Path. Smart artists use this function for saving their time and to work with Multisoftwares for Creative Designs. Tell me how did you used it. I will be waiting for your comments.
Thanks for your time...

Free On-Screen Keyboard for Windows 7 & XP

There are two different ways to have a ON SCREEN KEYBOARD on your Windows or MAC. One is your Windows gadget which you can find here >>>

On-Screen Keyboard:

Start > All Programs > Accessories > Ease of Access > On-Screen Keyboard
You can change the font and font size of this keyboard how you want. If you want to type in Marathi you can change it's font to Marathi Font. Same for other languages. This keyboard is available in Windows XP, 7 and Vista too.

Manual Keyboard:

If your On-screen Keyboard do not work then there is another way to work with On-screen keyboard, but this is manually. We need to download the Keyboard Layout from Internet. Like, if we want to type in Spanish Language then we search Spanish Keyboard Layout on Internet and find a Layout with good resolution. We download it.
After downloading we open another window where we want to type or practice. And we also open this keyboard. We open both windows in Stacked Mode. Then we start to typing. There can not be all the keys you want. Then go to Character Map and find other characters of the font.

Free Advise:

>>> If you do not have keyboard or your keyboard's any key does not work then you can take advantage of this.
>>> If you do not find any character on the keyboard you can take help of Character Map.
>>> Working with On-screen Keyboard can take some time. But you will be fluent if you work on this more than 2 hours. Your fingers will automatically go on the right buttons after some time practice.
>>> Please make sure that the fingers you are using for every button should be right. Because the keyboard is designed to help you to make fast. If you do not follow fingers instructions then you will never be fast on keyboard. Please take help of Finger Tutorials from Youtube or Google Image Search.
>>>  If you are new typist then take a newspaper, book, etc. to start the typing. Just open a New Word Document and start typing.

If you have any problem with On-Screen Keyboard or with any font. Or you do not find any character just write it on the comment option. I am waiting to help you.. Thanks....
