Once you create an illustration, you’ll usually pass it to the next phase of an illustration workflow—sending the file to be integrated into a publication, integrated in a Web or other digital display, or incorporated into an animation (such as a Flash movie).
In many cases, this means exporting an Illustrator file to another format that fits into the next phase of the workflow. This chapter explores your options for doing this.
Other techniques in this chapter show you how to use symbols and actions that make Illustrator files easier and quicker to edit or update. Symbols also reduce file size. In addition, you’ll learn how to share Illustrator files with other designers.
