Natural brushes and stylish drawing tools are some of the time saving tools presented by Adobe illustrator. This software is used by designers everywhere in the world. If we were to compare this new version with the previous ones it is quite evident that this is the most powerful among all. There is control over scaling, rotating and moving tools through its new touch type. With this software a user is able to sync colors and font using the type kit and adobe kuler. It is also possible to copy and paste CSS codes which are generated automatically. Irrespective of the sad fact that adobe illustrator does not have all the essential tool a interested user should not be discouraged but can as well download all the other tools from the internet. As much as this software is able to import many engines, to be able to open and edit them it requires them to be converted.

Pros

  • The tools offered in this software are very essential.
  • A easy interface which can be easily understood

Cons

  • For beginners it is not easy to use

Get to create exceptional and unique designs using this software

Adobe Illustrator CS5 brings something inspiring for graphic artists, designers and illustrators. It has new tools such as Bristle Brush, Flash Catalyst integration, Width Strokes and Perspective Grid. The program has an excellent functionality that makes it a convincing upgrade. Among the updates made on this application, I notice the improvements of the painting system. It now has the capability to differ the thickness of the strokes from start to end.

I think that Illustrator CS5 works very well and does not require a high-end PC for constructing your images. Vector designs are very efficient. It allows me to control every facet of the pictures I am working on. I also think that Adobe Illustrator CS5 is a good alternative to other CAD software.

This program helps me to make my designs striking. Even though I find myself having a hard time mastering this application, I am still exerting effort to understand the program because in the long run Adobe Illustrator CS5 is all worth it.

Pros

  • It has striking new tools
  • The new features are very efficient

Cons

  • Difficult to use for beginners

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.

Alternatives

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.

Adobe Illustrator CS5 Features

This software includes several new features and some improvements such as:

  • New Perspective Drawing feature which includes Perspective Selection and Perspective Grid tools
  • Multiple draw options thanks to the ‘variable-width strokes’ tool
