Status and raster graphics editing

Working more on graphic design lately, been making graphics for BELTA.org. Using shift and click in Photoshop seems to drastically increase your editing speed, drawing quick straight lines automatically creates the ability to slowly “sculpt” the edges of the line. This combined with decreased mouse sensitivity, and zooming in can greatly increase the effectiveness and speed of your raster graphic editing. It is also helpful to use the live trace tool in Illustrator to help streamline the hand drawn lines.

I have yet to create a new graphic solely using vectors, I have little use for vector graphics at this point, since these will not be used scaled in print. I do however find it useful to redraw specific curves or segments that have become “unaligned”, or curves that are particularly tricky in one way or another.
