Illustrate more effectively with Kuler - part 1

With each new version of any software there should be some clear improvements and, we hope, some new functionality. When Adobe released Creative Cloud, it didn't let us down: the newest iterations of its flagship applications have really moved the software along, while also introducing some fantastic new facilities to improve workflow. Illustrator, particularly, has been updated with some valuable new additions and the hope is that this will be the way of the future, as software and online resources become increasingly interconnected.

The initial focus in this tutorial is on the integration of Illustrator CC and the new Adobe Kuler iPhone app, which enables you to quickly generate colour themes from your photos or create new palettes using a colour wheel. Crucially, you can then access these palettes immediately and efficiently in Illustrator CC.
