ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR IS ANOTHER ADDITION IN THE ADOBE FAMILY .

By Frank Kanyua

On Friday, September 5, 2014

REVIEW

The adobe family will never let anyone down when it comes to the software and programs it releases.From the adobe photo shop to the dream weaver.The AI is a very essential tool when it comes to editing graphics,creating banners or event painting over an object.Though this version does not have all the tools,it still serves the purpose.The full trial version only needs a registration key in order to end the grace period that is accustomed with it,but if you know about editing registry you can tweark the file and still make it free.All 3d graphics designers should have this software install but with the time it uses to learn all of its tools there is no need.

The software can import most engine formats but needs to convert them in order to be able to open and edit them.The interface highly looks like that of adobe photo shop but with slight adjustments to tell the difference.

CONCLUSION

the adobe illustrator is a very essential tool though it does not have all the tool,you can download each and every one of them from the internet

Pros

  • this is a full trial version
  • tool offeres are very essential

Cons

  • not very condusive with beginners

Adobe Illustrator CS5 (Adam Nikki)

This vector graphics editor is the most famous one because it belong to the Adobe suite. The CS5 version was released in April 2010 with new features such as the Bristle Brush or the Perspective Grid. With this software, you will be able to create vector artworks with a profession look, draw very accurately, play with perspectives, and all this with accuracy and in a very smooth way.

The most important new features of Adobe Illustrator CS5 are the ones related to perspective. With perspective grids, you want draw scenes and shapes in 1-, 2- and 3-point linear perspective. In addition, you can also move, scale, transform or even duplicate object without losing the perspective. If you insert a plane object, it will take the perspective thanks to this new feature. The other mentioned new feature is the Bristle Brush. This way, you can create true-to-life brush strokes in your works. You can customize the size, the stiffness, the thickness and even the length of you brush to create your works at will. In conclusion, this is the perfect tool for those people who want to create a professional-like project to their web designs, etc.

Pros

  • It belongs to the adobe suite and this provides security

Cons

  • It is too much expensive
