I am completely new to AI and vector graphics. I downloaded trial version of AI CS3 and downloaded some sample vector images that I would like to play around with and manipulate to get an understanding of the software. Coming from limited knowledge of Photoshop, this software is somewhat intimidating yet familiar at the same time.
How can I select a certain area of an image to cut?
Is there a way to look at "layers" like in Photoshop?
