Adobe Illustrator is a powerful tool for creating and editing figures; unfortunately, it’s also really intimidating. So today at The Molecular Ecologist we’re trying something a little different: a screen-capture video tutorial about using Adobe Illustrator to enhance and edit plots that you make in R.
If you want to follow along with the full 13.75 minute tutorial, you can download the example PDF plots by clicking these links: Phylogeny and Scatterplot.
0:10-1:25: Saving plots to PDF in R
1:25-8:07: Editing a phylogeny
8:07-10:27: Editing a scatterplot
10:27-13:45: Combining and finalizing the figures
This video barely scratches the surface of what you can do with Adobe Illustrator, but hopefully it helps you get started. Happy Illustrating!
