Adobe Illustrator CC is a vector graphics software designed for professional graphic designers and artists. It is part of Adobe Creative Cloud, which is a collection of Adobe desktop and mobile apps. Built with wide variety of tools, filters, and effects; Adobe Illustrator is used by graphic designers to create graphic designs for websites, video games, brand logos, and promotion materials, or print media. This tool, which seamlessly works with vector graphics, can also create designs, illustrations, sketches, and topography for product packaging, billboards, clothes, AND business cards.
As a vector drawing and editing tool used for all types of media, Adobe Illustrator CC has the capability to produce artworks with pixel-perfect accuracy. It helps graphic designers and artists create designs faster, as it offers design presets and templates, which are easy to search and access. Moreover, since Adobe Illustrator is integrated with Adobe Creative Cloud, sharing of creative assets and art projects among designers and within teams is made easy.
Adobe Illustrator CC is popular for its capability to create pixel-perfect designs. It allows the creation of paths which are automatically aligned to the nearest pixel grid. As a result, sharp segments and clear lines are produced. Adobe Illustrator CC provides the Snap to Pixel capability, which enables users to customize the pixel-snapping feature of the software to align an artwork on exact pixel boundaries. It offers three Snap to Pixel options: Snap to Pixel while drawing, Snap to Pixel while moving, and Snap to Pixel while scaling. Hence, as users draw, scale, and move paths and vector shapes, Adobe Illustrator CC automatically aligns them to the pixel grid.
Furthermore, Adobe Illustrator CC allows users to access more than 90 million images, graphics, videos, templates, and other creative assets. These design templates and assets are organized in Adobe Stock, which is a marketplace and a collection of high-quality images, templates, graphics, 3D images and more. They are built into Adobe Creative Cloud apps, and they can be downloaded to add up to the built in templates that are accessible right from Adobe Illustrator CC. With this wide collection, users will be able to select the right design templates for their specific projects.
Adobe Illustrator CC also provides built in and ready-made presets. With these presets, graphic designers can start their artwork from blank pages instead of templates. They can also customize the details of a preset, such as its name, orientation, and number of artboards. If they want to customize how artboards in a document are laid out, Adobe Illustrator also enables them to do that.
