Some of the format of this tool are very useful for additions and perfections of colors. I can make design much more interesting and beautiful and attractive for my clients. Adobe Illustrator has capacity to work on a large or different files at once...

I used this products at work, but it's also useful for things at home, if you're creative. I like that I can turn my personal art into something digital

Ease of photoshop is not in illustrator. Features of both app should be in one. Import export is tedious task and frustrating sometimes.

There are not as many functions on drawpad as other applications.
