Adobe Illustrator is an industry standard tool in vector drawing applications, providing you with all the tools you need in professional design and artwork.
Industry standard design tools
Adobe Illustrator is the perfect tool for all kinds of design. Whether you’re a professional web designer or you just want to create a poster and some invites for a friend’s party, your creativity will be boosted with Adobe Illustrator's impressive set of drawing tools, brushes, color processing tools, and gradient effects, not to mention the wide array of filters and special effects with which you can add the final touch to your drawing.
Steep learning curve
As with any other vector drawing tool, Adobe Illustrator feels really complex for first-time users, with toolbars full of strange icons and many new functions and features to learn. The program does, however, includes a bunch of templates to get you started, as well as a thorough help section where you'll find the answer to any questions you may have.
Part of the cloud
Adobe Illustrator is seamlessly integrated with the rest of Adobe's Creative Cloud. You can easily import and export projects and content from the latest versions of Photoshop and Dreamweaver. Dreamweaver is particularly well supported, as Illustrator now allows dynamic authoring and testing support for content management systems like WordPress, Joomla!, and Drupal.
