In this workshop, you will learn the basics of using Adobe Illustrator, the professional standard in vector graphics software, for fine-tuning charts and graphs created in other programs like Excel, Matlab and R. Many people avoid using Illustrator because of its steep learning curve, but you will see that once you know a few basic tools, it is quite easy to give all your work a consistent look, extra highlights and annotations, and that professional edge. There are no prerequisites - we will start with the basics. (Note that the material presented here is a more complete and expanded treatment of the last section of my previous Illustrator workshops where chart modification always got squeezed into the last half-hour, which was not enough time.)
