Adobe Illustrator takes sophisticated drawing to a whole new level with its latest array of drawing tools, type and color controls and timesaving features. Whether you are drawing for industrial design or product logos - Illustrator is the industry standard. |
One of the many new features in Illustrator is advanced typography, with strikethrough, transparent effects and more. Over one hundred open type fonts and character and paragraph styles will help speed production.
Indeed, the timesaving aspects of Illustrator allows for quick and intuitive execution of ideas while experimenting freely with the flexible color controls and creating unique graphics for print or the web. Live Trace makes short work of converting scans or bitmap images to editable vector paths. Live Color allows for interactive editing in any artwork with immediate results. Live Paint Bucket allows for faster work with an interactive color selection from a Swatch palette and automatic detection and correction of gaps. And unlike other applications, converting your spline data to 3D involves simple exportation rather than saving.
Recoloring a piece of CMYK or Grayscale vector art manually used to take hours. With Illustrator, the process of recoloring while retaining tint values has been streamlined with multiple colors, tints and swatch sets. It's difficult not to create something interesting even with one-color printing jobs!
In addition, the New Document Profiles feature makes creating new documents less of a chore. Settings include color and preview mode, raster effects resolution and measurement settings. Profiles are optimized for the Web, video, film and print so you can make a new file with correct settings with a simple mouse click. If there's not enough room in the document for each function's icons, Illustrator will insert hyperlinks instead.
