Adobe Illustrator CS5 is a graphics editor based on vector drawing that allows high accuracy when it comes to creating designs. With this full trial version you will obtain some of the main tools that this software provides, and you can find tutorials, templates and brushes to download for free online.

Benefits of the full trial version

These kinds of tools can be difficult the first time you work with them, but you will become accustomed to using AI CS5 fairly quickly in a couple of sessions. If you have used Adobe software before, you will find that the interface is very similar to others, like Adobe Photoshop.

This program provides you with the necessary elements to create high quality designs - the essential hallmark of this suite. Moreover, there are lots of free templates you can find and download in order to increase the creative possibilities of this program.

Bitmaps and vectors

AI CS 5 can create 3D objects. Use existing designs and turn them into 3D. Add shades and different kind of effects in order to create a true sense of depth, or to achieve the image you have in mind.

This trial version includes a tool called Live Trace that turns bitmaps into vector pieces, thanks to the tracing capacity of the program. The engine has been refined to run smoothly when in heavy use.

AI can also add some animation to your images, in addition to the usual tools that a graphic editor must have.

Advanced functions

As usual with Adobe software, Adobe Illustrator CS5 has some advanced features that will delight users that have some experience dealing with this kind of program, yet will leave beginners despairing.

You can integrate Flash into your designs, which is very useful if you are creating web banners. Mix some objects and effects and you can create dynamic works. However, if you don’t want to complicate yourself there are plenty of templates to start out with.

If you are novice at graphic design, don’t worry! Keep calm and watch or download some tutorials on the Internet so that you can get a feel for the workflow and the mechanics of the full application.


Since Adobe has evolved into the company it is nowadays, it's competitors can seem to fall far behind. However, there are some applications that may get your attention. AutoCAD is one of those applications that might never fade away, for it is frequently updated and continues to own market share. FreeCAD is perfect if you want to start using this kind of software, since it is free and quite basic.
