Unleash your inner artist and reach top tier levels with this powerful tool

Adobe Illustrator CC is a professional design tool that, in my humble opinion, makes you think Photoshop was coded by a bunch of drunken monkeys. This program is just awesome. The CC version offers everything you need to achieve professional outcomes in whatever task you need to accomplish. You can create stunning illustrations and designs with ease and, the best thing is that these will be available in any size you want! That is the power of vectors. In fact, the use of vectors instead of pixels is what makes Illustrator so special. Vectors are math-based paths that can scale to infinite without losing quality, so you can use your design to create some cool stickers or to cover a 50 story building.

This CC version responds and operates faster than previous ones, which is a blessing, given the huge amount of data it has to process. The new Illustrator also enables you to create custom user shortcuts to work even faster. Moreover, it also got improved import and export options, so you can have your work ready in any format you desire.

Pros

  • Simply fantastic performance and workflow
  • A vast array of tools with thousands of uses

Cons

  • It might be a bit hard to get used to it if you have only tried its dumb cousin, Photoshop

How to use

As you know, Adobe has created one of the best creative Suites on the market and of course the incredible vector illustrator had to be includd. Redefining the whole software concept, Adobe had simplified Illustrator to make it more intuitive and easy to use. Now the perspective drawing is simpler with a vanishing point and a horizon line. An outstanding feature is the improved vector control. Now it is possible to combine sketches and alter the thickness with a click, saving time searching through menus for the exact tool. Its a great advantage for professionals who realize that Adobe has listened their comments and is improving the program based on feedback.

New tools have been implemented too; Adobe Illustrator CC includes a completely new pencil tool and new kinds of brushes. The software is able to import and export settings and share with other users online. Adobe Illustrator CC is able to run on multiple devices, even Windows 8 tablets and has HiDPI display support. Thanks to the new Adobe Mercury Performance System, the software is faster and more efficient when working with vectors.
