When working with Adobe Illustrator, you will find yourself using strokes all the time.

Strokes (or lines) are a great way to add an extra layer of detail to a project, so knowing how to work with strokes is very important.

In this mini tutorial, we will cover the basics of adding a stroke and changing the width of a stroke in Illustrator.

Here’s how to do it:

Save a new sample

  1. Open your Illustrator project file
  2. Select or create a trace or a traced object
  3. Open the Stroke panel (Window > Stroke), and adjust the weight of the stroke up or down as desired
  4. In the tools panel (on the left), select the Width tool (shortcut W).
  5. With the stroke highlighted in the document window (main work area), click and drag any point along the stroke to increase or decrease only a section of the stroke thickness.
