Pointer to Adobe Illustrator lessons for standups?

Postby kipling » Sat Aug 07, 2010 7:27 pm

Basically, I want to make standups from existing images (for my own use only). I have Adobe Illustrator for work reasons but I don't know much about it. Has anyone got a pointer to a set of instructions so that I can take the already flipped ("reflected") image and make a shadow out of it? Basically, I just want to create blackness that has the same shape, but I have no idea of what to do.

Generic Instructions for most art programs.
  • Magic Wand select the empty space around the character.
  • Invert the selection.
  • Fill the now selected silhouette with black.

How can I get Adobe Reader to recognize my pages as separate? When I export my 7 page inDesign file as a pdf, Adobe Reader views the last six pages as three pages. It groups them together so, for example, pages 2 and 3 are just one wide page. This wouldn't be a problem, except that they PRINT this way, too, and I need the pages to be separate. Do I need to change something in inDesign or export it a certain way so it doesn't act like that?
