Lesson 1. FreeHand Basics

Macromedia FreeHand is a powerful application that you can use for your creative projects, whether they are for print or the web. Designed originally as a tool for creating line art for print, FreeHand has grown to be a tremendous tool for all your graphic projects and ideas. For example, you can use FreeHand to draw a logo for your company, create business cards and letterheads and other marketing materials, storyboard your web site, and even create Macromedia Flash presentations. Although Macromedia Flash is a powerful web animation tool, FreeHand has better drawing tools. The two applications work together, giving designers a commanding set of tools for creating everything necessary for print or motion graphics.
