Question regarding Front end development track courses

Hello everyone :)

I'm here on treehouse for a month already doing the front end web development track, and I'm now in the last course.

Before I started it , it mentioned that I should go over SVG basics, tapping into that course, I was advised to do the Illustrator basics course first.

I would like to know why these courses aren't integrated into the track and if people that have finished the front end course recommend going through those steps as said.

I'm running a windows machine and I don't have Adobe Illustrator nor can afford it at the moment.

Waiting for your input.

Honestly, for front-end work you'd be better off knowing Photoshop fundamentals. You can download a trial for Photoshop I believe and/or if you just want to have PS for the time you're taking those courses you can just pay for a month. It's like $30 for just PS for a month.

It's not an absolute necessity but it's pretty common. It's nice to at least know you're way around the program.
