Yesterday during class we learnt using pathfinders in illustrator. It was my first time using illustrator so it was something new and different. I thought I was very okay using photoshop, but by using this it was completely different to what I have expected.

We learnt how to group shapes together, by using the shortcut command + g and also learning how to use the ‘Boolean Operator’.

The boolean operator (path finder) has four components

  • subtract
  • add
  • intersect
  • exclude


You can see from this image the usage of these pathfinders.
