Autodesk® Illustrator®

Illustrator allows the user to work with a wide variety of file types to create images used in advertising, artistic displays or publications. The software is based on vector graphics, a system that uses mathematic representations to define the lines and shading of an image, rather than photographic image files.

...enlarge the image to fit a billboard or shrink it down for use on a business card or a smart phone screen. Save the image in the best file format for its use. Use the file in other Adobe products including Dreamweaver for web design or Indesign for printed pages, books or magazines.
